Postdoctoral Fellow or Research Associate Positions

Becoming a postdoctoral fellow or research associate with the NEC is an exciting opportunity to join a laboratory aimed at identifying behavioral and neural mechanisms of sensory processing, motion perception, and visual motor behavior in healthy controls and in patients with eye and/or brain disease.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in one or more ongoing research studies involving human subject experiments involving eye tracking, motion simulation, immersive virtual reality, deep brain simulation, computational modeling, machine learning, and structural and functional neuroimaging.

The candidate will be responsible for:

  1. Helping to design and perform experiments with human subjects.
  2. Carrying out analyses of recorded data.
  3. Preparing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals and presenting results at research conferences.
  4. Coordinating operations related to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Research Compliance Office.

We will assist and support the candidates who demonstrate extraordinary academic productivity and enthusiasm to secure a research faculty position.

Salary will be according to the level of seniority. Learn more about the academic program.

Co-op Opportunities

In the NEC, there are numerous co-op opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in neurostimulation.

Details as posted in the university's job portal are as follows:

Job Title: Co-op Engineer
Department: Research and Development
Status: Non-exempt, 40hrs/week
Location: Cleveland, OH
Travel Requirements: None

Postdoctoral Positions

We also facilitate a number of postdoctoral positions in rehabilitation engineering.

"Intracranial Neurophysiology of Cognition and Epilepsy: The Department of Neurology" at the University of California, Davis, invites applications for a qualified postdoctoral scholar in the area of neurophysiology in hospitalized patients with implanted brain electrodes.

Their lab analyzes intracranial EEG in patients with epilepsy. We work together with a consortium of researchers to understand the biological basis of how normal brain functions (cognition, mood, memory) and disease states (epilepsy) interact using computational modeling to guide neurostimulation therapy for the syndrome of epilepsy.


  • You will be responsible for analyzing electrophysiological data from neurosurgical patients (electrocorticography, stereotactic EEG, single-unit data, stimulation-evoked responses).
  • You will design and lead innovative research lines centered on fundamental concepts of cognition in epilepsy.
  • You will initiate academic publications published in peer-reviewed journals; prepare training grant proposals and other applications for future research.
  • You will engage in lab meetings, mentor trainees, and foster multidisciplinary collaborations.

You will work in highly collaborative research and clinical environments at UC Davis. The full-time appointment is for up to two years with possibility of renewal. Position level and salary commensurate with training and experience, according to NIH scales. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
