Neural Engineering Positions at Mayo Cinic Arizona

Research Job Opportunities:
Device Based Neuroelectronics Lab at Mayo Clinic Arizona
Do you want to design the next generation of brain-computer interface therapies for neurologic disease?
My name is Jonathon Parker, and I am a Stanford-training neurosurgeon-scientist, now working at Mayo Clinic Arizona. I am currently recruiting passionate, curious, and driven computational scientists to work in my laboratory, the Device-Based Neuroelectronics Lab (DBNL). If you want to use your skillset to advance therapies for human neurologic disease—this is the place to be.
Our translational neuroscience research program is focused on the development of novel brain stimulation mapping techniques to identify the most effective targets to suppress epileptic networks. We utilize a wide range of signal processing techniques to mine brain local field potential data from patients with epilepsy before, during, and after therapeutic intracranial stimulation. Our lab group focuses on identifying the ideal anatomic regions of stimulation in the human brain. We are a dynamic group of clinicians, scientists, and engineers focused on defining the capabilities needed in the next generation of intracranial brain stimulation devices to treat epilepsy and other neurologic disorders.
Expertise in signal processing techniques, bio-signal amplifiers, and curiosity desired! Neuroscience background not required – but a willingness to learn a must!
The DBNL collaborates with groups across the Mayo Clinic Enterprise including the Rochester, MN and Jacksonville, FL campuses. We work closely with Dr. Greg Worrell’s group – a pioneer in epilepsy neuromodulation devices. Opportunities for further career development and training in entrepreneurship is available through Mayo Clinic Ventures.
The lab is located on the Mayo Clinic Campus in beautiful Phoenix, AZ. Enjoy an active Sonoran Desert lifestyle with ample opportunities for hiking, biking, and being outdoors. During the warmer summer months, the temperate climate of nearby Flagstaff, AZ is quickly accessible. A diverse array of food and cultural opportunities abound across the Phoenix metro region. Great schools, reasonable cost of living, and limited traffic make Phoenix and Scottsdale an ideal place to live.
We are currently recruiting talent at all levels from research technicians to post-doctoral fellows.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your interest and career aspirations.
