The Stanford Human Motor Control and Balance laboratory seeks a full-time
researcher/ post-doctoral fellow to participate in research into human brain
electrophysiology in Parkinson's disease and dystonia. The Stanford Human
Motor Control and Balance laboratory is part of the Stanford Movement
Disorders Center within the department of Neurology and Neurosciences at
Stanford University School of Medicine. Research in the laboratory focuses
on the pathophysiology of movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease,
dystonia, and tremor using quantitative kinematics, dynamic posturography,
and human brain electrophysiology. This position offers an exceptional
opportunity to participate in research into the underlying abnormalities of
electrical activity in the basal ganglia in movement disorders such as
Parkinson's disease, via direct local field potential recordings.

The position involves direct human subject interaction and testing, the
collection, and analysis of local field potential data and spectral analysis
using advanced mathematics and statistical processes. The desired candidate
is a self-motivated, independent worker who is capable of developing new
research avenues. He or she is expected to participate in all aspects of
research from experiment design to data collection, analysis and graphical
presentation, in addition to the writing of manuscripts, oral presentations
at meetings, and collaboration with other laboratories.

The position requires training in electrical engineering, neuroscience,
bioengineering, mechanical engineering, or a related field. Experience and
publications within the field of neuroscience. Candidates should have an MS
degree or higher (PhD preferred) with strong mathematical, computational,
and writing skills. Experience with MatLab and statistical software is
necessary. Experience with video, data presentation and database software
is also preferred. In addition to strong technical skills, this position
requires the interpersonal and communication skills necessary to interact
with patients and their families and excellent organizational skills.
