TMS-EEG Post Doctoral position at The Epilepsy Research Lab, Kings College London
The Epilepsy Research Lab headed by Prof. Mark Richardson ( https://epilepsy-london.org/) is seeking experienced candidates for an 18 months fully funded post-doctoral research of pharmacodynamic markers of drug-target engagement using simultaneous TMS-EEG.
The role we seek would be the senior researcher in the study, involved directly in the recruitment of healthy volunteers, data collection using TMS-EMG and TMS-EEG, data analysis position to conduct research using TMS-EEG . The candidate will be part of an ongoing Phase I clinical trial of a novel brain-active drug and will participate in the development, and with the potential for first-author publications.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated researcher with strong experience in TMS and ideally who is able to run neuronavigated TMS experiments combined with electroencephalography (TMS-EEG) without supervision. The essential requirements for a successful candidate is confidence and independence in performing TMS-EMG experiments, including motor area hotspotting, measurement of single-pulse (ie. RMT/AMT) and paired-pulse protocols (SICI, LICI). Ideally, the candidate should have experience in the use of TMS guided neuronavigation and an in EEG data collection, but training in these areas can be provided as needed. Experience with programming in Matlab is required and experience with EEG processing software would be a considerable advantage (EEGLab, Fieldtrip, TESA). Ideally, the candidate should have strong leadership to guide and coordinate a clinical research team composed of 3 researchers, 1 medical doctor and 1 research nurse. Finally, an important and crucial task is to report step-by-step trial activities and results to the PI of the study (Prof. Richardson) and the commercial sponsor.
