Two postdoc positions are available in the lab of Alexander Opitz (University of Minnesota, USA). The lab works in the field of brain stimulation (with a focus on transcranial methods – TMS, tACS) across multiple levels of investigation. We conduct both computational research (using resources from Minnesota Supercomputing Institute) and human experimental research (EEG, ECoG, functional and structural MRI, psychophysics). In collaboration with other labs at the University of Minnesota, we perform basic research in animal models. Through the direct vicinity to the Medical School, we have several collaborators who study brain stimulation in clinical populations.
We are looking for postdocs to contribute to our ongoing projects: closed-loop TMS-EEG, multiscale modeling of TMS/tACS, human or animal research in neurophysiology of TMS/tACS, cognitive effects of brain stimulation in healthy humans and patients; or develop their own research agendas. Interest and ability to integrate into a multidisciplinary team is essential.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in an applied quantitative field (Engineering, Physics, or Applied Mathematics), or life sciences (Neuroscience, Human Biology, or Cognitive Science) with an interest in noninvasive brain stimualtion.
The Opitz lab is committed to the career advancement of its members. We offer a diverse and inclusive environment with numerous opportunities for members to develop their own projects and support for fellowships and career development awards.
