Post-Doctoral Research Associate


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 neural activity for disease treatment and restoration of function.


The successful applicant will conduct in vivo experiments to advance application of electrical stimulation for control of bowel function following spinal cord injury.


The applicant will also gain exposure to other projects in the lab, spanning from modeling to translational clinical studies and including deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, peripheral stimulation for bladder control, and non-invasive brain stimulation. The strong interdisciplinary and collaborative environment at Duke is ideal for continued scientific and professional development.


Success candidates must…

·       Hold a PhD in engineering, neuroscience, physiology, physics, or computer science

·       Be a proficient experimentalist with experience conducting in vivo experiments to measure physiological responses

·       Be familiar with neural biophysics and the fundamental principles of neural engineering

·       Have excellent informal and formal written and oral communication skills

·       Be capable of balancing independent research progress with collaboration and team work

·       Bring curiosity, enthusiasm, and initiative!


This is a full-time position with University Benefits and provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development. We value all dimensions of diversity and believe that the best solutions to challenging problems will come from working with people from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
