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 nerves for disease treatment and restoration of function. We have NIH-funded and industry-sponsored projects to develop, validate, and apply computer-based models of electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves to design improved therapies.

The successful applicant will become an expert in our ASCENT (Automated Simulations to Characterize Electrical Nerve Thresholds) pipeline for biophysical simulations of neural responses to electrical signals. They will develop new modeling methods and new models; they will apply those models to simulate neural responses and design new therapies.

The applicant will also gain exposure to other projects in the lab, spanning computer-based modeling of neurons and electric fields, in vivo stimulation and recording in preclinical models, and translational clinical feasibility and 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. Job candidates must…

For consideration, please submit a cover letter, CV with GPA, and the names and contact information of three professional references.
