Postdoctoral Research Associate, Biomedical Engineering-2013865
The Biomedical Functional Imaging and Neuroengineering Laboratory , directed by Prof. Bin He, in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral candidate to work on NIH funded research projects at the intersection of biomedical instrumentation, neuroengineering and neuroscience. We use a combination of computer simulations, electrophysiological recordings and neuroimaging through experimentation on both animal models and human subjects to better understand the mechanisms of ultrasound neuromodulation, to develop a neuroimaging-guided non-invasive brain stimulation tool using transcranial focused ultrasound, and to explore such a tool's functionality in treating diseases.
An important component of this position will be to work as part of an interdisciplinary team spanning engineering, neuroscience, and medical doctors. You will be expected to conduct independent research, work closely with collaborators, mentor graduate students, and publish high-quality research work each year. The position is available to start in October 2019, initially for 12 months with possibility of renewal for up to three years. Carnegie Mellon offers exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary research and career development, for collaborations with leading researchers in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, electrical and computer engineering, computer science, and machine learning.
