A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Nader Pouratian, in the Department of Neurological Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study human intracranial neurophysiology, with a focus on advanced signal analytics of neural and circuit level physiology. Our laboratory has several exciting projects related to circuit level analytics of the human motor system, both in health and disease. Projects include studying the network-based pathophysiology, biomarkers of disease, and studying the physiology of therapeutic neuromodulation. Projects integrate multimodal data sources, including physiology, imaging, and quantitative kinematics. Opportunities for extending analytics to other systems including consciousness and depression are also available. The position requires a 2-year minimum commitment.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Required skills include proficiency with Matlab/Python and experience in neural signal analyses, including analysis of field potential, electrocorticography, and multi-unit activity, preferably in humans. Experience with machine learning and circuit level analytics and modeling is preferred. Proven productivity and team work as evidenced by publication in peer-reviewed journals, is recommended.
