University of Minnesota, Department of Neurology

Position: Postdoctoral Researcher: DBS & Sleep Neurophysiology

Description:

The Neuromodulation Research Center (NMRC) at the University of Minnesota seeks a postdoctoral fellow to study the effects of parkinsonism and deep brain stimulation (DBS) on basal ganglia-thalamocortical circuitry during sleep-wake behavior. Under the direction of Dr. Jerrold Vitek M.D., PhD, and Dr. Luke Johnson, Ph.D., the fellow will work collaboratively within the NMRC on preclinical studies using a non-human primate model of Parkinson’s disease. Results from this study will provide a better understanding of the brain circuitry involved in disordered sleep in parkinsonism and inform the development of targeted therapeutic interventions to treat sleep disorders. The applicant may also have the opportunity to be involved in clinical research studies in patients receiving DBS implants.

Candidates with a background in sleep physiology are especially encouraged to apply. Thecandidate should have a strong quantitative background and signal processing expertise appropriate for the analysis of neural activity. Experience conducting neurophysiology experiments in animal models is preferred but not required. The candidate should have a strong record of presenting research results through publications and presentations. UMN Job ID 328083.
