Postdoctoral position - Computational Modeling

A postdoctoral position is currently open in the NERD lab. 

 

The postdoc fellow will work closely with an interdisciplinary team of engineers and neuroscientists. The postdoc fellow is expected to work independently in simulations design, data collection and analysis, and paper publication. The postdoc fellow will be encouraged to develop independent research projects and develop individual fellowship grant proposals. The reserach project for this position aims to develop computer models of neurons in the spinal cord. Competitive candidates must have:

  • A PhD in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, or related field

  • Experience with NEURON and COMSOL and general understanding of the core concepts of bioelectromagnetism

  • Evidence for substantial capability for independent work, problem-solving and initiative taking

  • Strong publication record

 

Besides an excellent infrastructure, the NERD lab and Wright State University offer an international and friendly environment with researchers from diverse backgrounds.The position is ideal for candidates interested in research at the interface between neurophysiology and computational modeling. The starting date for the position is flexible. The salary is competitive and will be based on the candidate's experience.

 

To inquire about this position, please send a single PDF file that includes: a cover letter, CV including publications, statement of research interests and personal qualifications, and the contact information of three references to Dr. Sherif Elbasiouny at sherif.elbasiouny@wright.edu.
