The Dystonia and Speech Motor Control Laboratory led by Dr. Kristina Simonyan in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery and Neurology at Mass General Brigham and Harvard Medical School is recruiting highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows to lead multiple projects which use multimodal neuroimaging, non-invasive neurostimulation, deep learning, and brain-computer interfaces to investigate the neural basis of normal and diseased speech control and to develop novel technologies for advanced diagnostics and treatment.
The postdoctoral fellows will function as part of a multi-disciplinary team of neuroscientists and clinicians. Responsibilities include participating in all aspects of data acquisition and management; developing, modifying, and executing analytical protocols; preparing publications and scientific presentations; disseminating results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and at major national and international meetings, and mentoring junior staff. Opportunities exist for excellent scientific interactions and collaborations with an extensive program of seminars, symposia, and other meetings focused on a large array of topics in neuroscience, clinical research, and neurotechnology. See https://simonyanlab.hms.harvard.edu/join-lab for further details.
Candidate should have a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience, Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering, Mathematics, or related fields of biomedical sciences. Candidates with research expertise in human brain imaging, neurostimulation, solid experience with scientific computing, or development of deep learning and other benchmark algorithms are especially encouraged to apply.
The positions are available immediately. The applications are considered on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled. Applicants should send a detailed CV, a statement of research interests, and the names with contact information of at least three professional referees to Kristina_Simonyan@meei.harvard.edu.
The Dystonia and Speech Motor Control Laboratory is committed to the academic growth and success of postdoctoral fellows and is looking for highly motivated applicants to join our multidisciplinary team.
