We seek a highly-motivated individual to pursue neural engineering research in a supportive and collaborative environment. Our goal is to advance bioelectronic medicines: electrical stimulation, block, and recording of peripheral autonomic nerves for disease treatment and restoration of function. The successful applicant will advance our in vivo, in vitro, and computational modeling studies to conceive of, develop, and test interventions using electrical stimulation to control colonic motility. They will develop new experimental and modeling methods as required to advance the research. The objectives are to develop interventions that can be deployed clinically, for example by electrical stimulation of the sacral nerve roots. This is a full-time position with University Benefits and provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development. The appointment will be for one year, with a June 1, 2023 start date. 

• Hold a PhD degree in engineering, physics, neuroscience, or physiology 
• Be familiar with neural biophysics and the fundamental principles of neural engineering 
• Have experience conducting complex in vivo and in vitro experiments 
• Have excellent informal and formal written and oral communication skills 
• Be capable of balancing independent research progress with collaboration and team work, as appropriate 
• Bring curiosity, enthusiasm, and initiative! For consideration, please submit a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three professional references.
