Postdoctoral position jointly in Behrmann/Grover labs CMU in understanding neural mechanisms through noninvasive brain monitoring

 A postdoc position on utilizing noninvasive measurement modalities is available in the labs of Marlene Behrmann and Pulkit Grover at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA). The team's goal is to utilize existing and novel engineering and mathematical tools to understand neural mechanisms in healthy and diseased states through EEG measurements, possibly complemented by fMRI. The role of the postdoc will be to lead experimental testing, simulations, and data analysis. The postdoc will collaborate with information theorists, neuroscientists, experimentalists, and clinicians. This is an opportunity to work on challenging and applicable scientific problems in a highly interdisciplinary and vibrant environment.

Requirements: PhD in a related discipline (Engineering, Computer Science, Neuroscience, or Biomedical Engineering) with a strong experimental and computational record. Background in EEG recordings is required. The labs are committed to the professional development of the members, making this position a valuable preparation for those interested in academic, industrial or entrepreneurial careers. The position has no mandatory teaching or administrative duties.

The ideal start date is July 2019, but early applications will also be accepted. The position is initially for 12 months with the possibility of renewal. Compensation will be competitive, and commensurate with relevant experience. Candidates should send a CV, a statement of research experience and interests, expected date of availability, and the contact information for three references to behrmann@cmu.edu and ​pulkit@cmu.edu with the subject line “neural monitoring postdoc”. Application review will proceed until the position is filled.
