Postdoctoral Fellowship

Neurophysiology of Epilepsy Unit
Position Type
Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Neurophysiology of Epilepsy Unit aims to develop novel biomarkers to localize seizure foci and to define seizure networks and propagation patterns in order to  improve the evaluation and treatment of patients with drug resistant focal epilepsy.  Our ongoing noninvasive epilepsy imaging protocol provides a unique standardized multimodal dataset, providing deep phenotyping of patients undergoing evaluation for epilepsy surgery at the NIH Clinical Center, including structural and functional neuroimaging, magnetoencephalography and electroencephalographic recordings. The NIH Intramural Research Program offers outstanding facilities, as well as numerous opportunities for collaboration. We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to work on a project using resting state functional MRI data, alone or in combination with other imaging and electrophysiological data, to develop methods to localize active seizure foci and also to better understand patterns of propagation of epileptiform activity. Candidates interested in related projects aligned with the goals of the unit will also be considered.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and less than 5 years of post-doctoral experience. We are seeking applicants with experience in neuroimaging (structural and functional MRI) and/or neurophysiologic (MEG, EEG) techniques with an interest applying these techniques to the clinic.  Applications should include a statement of research interests and experience, as well as long term career goals, a CV and names and contact information of three references.

Inquiries and applications should be sent to Sara Inati, MD, Assistant Clinical Investigator, email:
