Research Fellow at University of Michigan

University of Michigan has an opening postdoctoral fellowship position. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

Interested applicants must send a cover letter addressing specific interests in the position and outlining relevant skills and experience, a full curriculum vitae (CV), and a list of at least three references with contact information to Scott Lempka at lempka@umich.edu. Questions prior to a formal application are welcome.

The Neuromodulation Lab, led by Dr. Scott Lempka, in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan is seeking applications for a highly-motivated and self-driven Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Our research group performs computational modeling and clinical studies related to neurostimulation therapies for treating neurological disorders, such as chronic pain. The successful applicant will be responsible for performing computational modeling analyses of clinical neurostimulation therapies. This work will include finite element analyses to estimate the electric field generated during stimulation. This work will also require neuron modeling to estimate the neural response to the applied stimulation. The fellow may also have the opportunity to perform human subjects research related to neurostimulation technologies. In particular, we are conducting an NIH-funded project developing a novel injectable electrode system for dorsal root ganglion stimulation to treat pain.

The new scholar will be responsible for performing computational modeling analyses of clinical neurostimulation therapies. This work will include finite element analyses to estimate the electric field generated during stimulation. This work will also require neuron modeling to estimate the neural response to the applied stimulation. The study will involve close collaborations with project team members from multiple disciplines and multiple institutions on experimental planning, testing, analysis, and data sharing. The project will also offer opportunities for interaction and collaboration with leaders within the fields of neuromodulation and bioelectronic medicine. Additionally the scholar will have opportunities to contribute to other on-going and future projects in the Neuromodulation Lab.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, or related field with a strong computational background and computer programming proficiency (e.g. Python, MATLAB). Excellent interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills. Ability to organize and manage multiple tasks simultaneously, as well as prioritize and exercise good judgement. Ability to work independently with minimal supervision in a diplomatic, collaborative and effective manner while maintaining confidentiality.

Prior experience with finite element analysis and computational modeling of neurostimulation therapies is a plus. Knowledge of clinical neurostimulation therapies and clinical research is also a plus.

Michigan Medicine conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screenings. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act. Pre-employment drug testing applies to all selected candidates, including new or additional faculty and staff appointments, as well as transfers from other U-M campuses.

Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. The review and selection process may begin as early as the eighth day after posting. This opening may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.
