Staff Research Scientist - Electrical Stimulation for Restoration of Bladder Function

The Grill Lab at Duke University, Department of Biomedical Engineering, seeks a highly-motivated individual who enjoys the freedom to pursue their own ideas in a supportive environment to join our team. Our goal is to advance electrical stimulation for restoration of bladder function. An earned PhD and substantial experience in experimental electrophysiology and electrical stimulation are required, as are excellent communication skills.

In our lab we presently have active projects in:

• autonomic nerve stimulation and block: vagus nerve stimulation; computational modeling for analysis and design; in vivo electrophysiology

• deep brain stimulation: mechanisms of action; closed-loop control; design of innovative therapies

• spinal cord stimulation to treat chronic pain: modeling, preclinical studies, and clinical studies to understand mechanisms and to innovate for increased therapeutic efficacy

• peripheral nerve recording and stimulation for control of bladder function, including restoration of continence and emptying

• transcranial magnetic stimulation: mechanisms and innovations to increase efficacy

We conduct computer-based modeling of neurons and electric fields, in vivo stimulation and recording in preclinical models, and translational clinical feasibility / physiology experiments in humans. The strong interdisciplinary and collaborative environment at Duke is ideal for our translational research efforts.

This is a full-time position with University Benefits and provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development.
