The He Laboratory ( in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is seeking highly motivated candidates to fill a postdoctoral research position in the field of transcranial focused ultrasound neuromodulation. You will have outstanding opportunities to be trained and collaborate with world leading investigators in neuromodulation, neural interfacing, neuroengineering, neuroscience, machine learning and engineering at CMU College of Engineering and Neuroscience Institute, and collaborating leading medical centers.

We are currently working on integrated multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary research projects aiming at developing novel neurotechnologies to stimulate and modulate the brain at unprecedent spatio-temporal resolution using focused ultrasound, and establishing the technology for broad neuroscience research and human translation. You will be able to work in a highly collaborative environment on ultrasound instrumentation, computer modeling, animal experiments and human study. You will be expected to conduct original research in transcranial focused ultrasound neuromodulation, and publish high impact journal articles. You will also have opportunities to mentor talented graduate students carrying out experiments.

Qualifications: PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Neuroscience or a related field. Prior experience in neuromodulation is expected. Prior experience in at least one of the following aspects is expected: 1) ultrasound instrumentation or ultrasound computer modeling/simulation; 2) rodent models with multi-electrode array recording and analysis; 3) noninvasive neuromodulation in human subjects. Experience with transcranial focused ultrasound neuromodulation is highly desirable but not required. Experience with transcranial magnetic stimulation a plus but not required.

Outstanding candidates with strong publication records in relevant journals and outstanding writing and oral communication skills are encouraged to apply. E-mail pdf CV to Prof. Bin He at
