Postdoctoral Position at UNC-Chapel Hill
in Human Electrophysiology (EEG, tDCS/tACS, TMS)

We are seeking to fill one postdoctoral position in human electrophysiology in the Frohlich Lab (www.frohlichlab.org<http://www.frohlichlab.org/>) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We are a rapidly growing lab that aims to understand how cortical network dynamics emerge and how these dynamics can be modulated with brain stimulation. We have received grant funding to further grow our human electrophysiology team in the lab. In particular, we are interested in understanding how (feedback) non-invasive brain stimulation alters cortical network dynamics that mediate cognition. The successful applicant will employ tDCS/tACS, EEG, TMS, and cognitive testing for elucidating the functional role of cortical oscillations in cognition and for the development of novel strategies to enhance brain function and treat cognitive deficits in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and autism.

The successful candidate has a PhD in neuroscience or related discipline and a track record of first class science demonstrated by first-author, peer-reviewed scientific articles in the area of human neurophysiology. Documented skills in EEG and cognitive assays are a prerequisite; programming and data analysis skills are essential. We will provide training in non-invasive brain stimulation methods. Please send your CV and a brief statement of research interest to flavio_frohlich at med.unc.edu<mailto:flavio_frohlich at med.unc.edu> . Also, please have two letters of recommendation directly submitted to the same email address.

We are looking forward to meeting passionate and hard-working applicants who are ready for cutting-edge human neuroscience research. The Frohlich Lab takes pride in its high-quality science, productive work environment, and culture of mentoring and collaboration. The Frohlich aims to be a leading force in the emerging field of network neuroscience. The Frohlich Lab is a unique environment due to the vertical integration of computer simulations, slice electrophysiology, in vivo electrophysiology, human EEG and brain stimulation studies, and clinical trials. Applications will be immediately reviewed until the position is filled. Start date is flexible but the earlier the better.
