The Departments of Psychology and Clinical Neuroscience in the Cumming School of Medicine at the University of Calgary is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroscience .
The candidate will join a research team investigating imaging/electrophysiology and modeling of treatment-resistant depression in the setting of deep brain stimulation. The aim of the project is to determine the predictors of response and build a working model of the cortical pathways involved in depression and DBS responsiveness. The candidate will join a dynamic team that uses techniques including imaging and electrophysiology in humans. The candidate will perform experiments, analyse data, write and present her/his research findings. She/he is expected to participate in planning and intellectual development of projects, and will use multidisciplinary approaches to satisfy research objectives.
Applicants should have a recent PhD with a strong background in EEG, and/or MR imaging analyses. Candidates must be highly self-motivated, enthusiastic and adaptable, with good oral and written communication skills.
Salary is 55k/year plus benefits and the Eyes High postdoctoral Scholars program funds trainees for 2 years. Most will obtain external competitive funding at this point.
