Postdoctoral Associate position in Neural Engineering/Neuroscience A postdoctoral position in neural engineering with an emphasis on experimental neuroscience is available in Dr. Marc Sommer’s laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. The goal is to use neurophysiological techniques to understand the cortical response to transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) at the circuit level in non-human primates. The project is highly interdisciplinary and includes opportunities for collaboration across Duke, including with Dr. Warren Grill in Biomedical Engineering and Dr. Angel Peterchev in Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences. The position is supported by a new BRAIN Initiative R01 award that aims to integrate neural data with computational modeling to establish how TMS affects the brain.

Applicants should have completed a PhD in biomedical or electrical engineering, neurobiology, or a related field and have experience or a dedicated interest in neurophysiology and research involving non-human primates. Candidates should have a strong experimental background, academic history, and publication record, excellent verbal and written communication skills, and proficiency in quantitative analysis, statistics, and programming.
