Job Opportunities

The Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation welcomes inquiries about open positions at our center. Current open positions:

Postdoctoral Fellow

Summer Internship

Clinical Neurophysiologist

Neurophysiologic Signals/Data Analyst

Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundation Clinical Fellowship

Post Doctoral Fellow

We are looking for highly motivated candidates interested in postdoctoral research in neurophysiology and non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS).

Analysis will be focused on characterization of rTMS effects, and identification of predictive factors for rTMS effects in individual subjects (including baseline genetic factors, MRI/fMRI characteristics, cognitive / personality assessment, and EEG and TMS measures). The candidate will be primarily focused on collection and analysis of TMS-EEG and TMS-behavioral data, refinement and extension of existing EEG analysis pipelines, and development of predictive models of TMS effects. Extensive prior experience with EEG preprocessing and analysis (e.g. EEG connectivity, source localization), particularly in combination with TMS, is highly valued. The ideal candidate will also have significant programming and data analysis skills, and some familiarity with predictive models and/or basic machine learning techniques.

Both positions are available immediately. Interested applicants should send their resume and the names of 3 references to Dr. Mouhsin Shafi mshafi@bidmc.harvard.edu and Andrea Vatulas avatulas@bidmc.harvard.edu.

Neurophysiologic Signals/Data Analyst

The Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation, headed by Dr. Alvaro Pascual-Leone, is a world leader in research and development, clinical application, and teaching of noninvasive brain stimulation techniques, and their integration with fMRI, EEG and cognitive tasks, applied to human neuroscience and clinical neurology and psychiatry.

The ideal candidate for the neurophysiologic signals/data analyst will have a masters or PhD degree in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science or related fields, a strong background in signal processing, and experience with EEG and fMRI analysis. Experience with programming in Matlab is required, and familiarity with other programming languages (bash, cshell, python), EEG processing software (EEGLab, Fieldtrip, Cartool), and/or MRI software (FSL, SPM, freesurfer) is preferred. The position will entail the development of data processing and analysis pipelines, analysis and interpretation of EEG & fMRI data, and teaching and supervision of students and technicians.

This position is full-time and inclusive of a full, standard benefits package.

To apply, please send the following to Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD
c/o Alisha Wilkinson arwilkin@bidmc.harvard.edu :

    1. Curriculum vitae

The ideal candidate for the clinical neurophysiologist position will have specialty training in clinical neurophysiology including electromyogram (EMG), electroencephalogram (EEG), and, ideally, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). The position will entail the development and testing of standardized data acquisition protocols, especially TMS protocols such as SICI, LICI, PAS, and rTMS induced plasticity. The position will involve interaction with both neurological and psychiatric patients and include teaching and supervision of students and technicians.

This position is full-time and inclusive of a full, standard benefits package.

Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundation Clinical Fellowship

The department of Neurology and the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), and Harvard Medical School (HMS) are seeking a clinical fellow with training in neurology or psychiatry. Applicants must be committed to working across these two disciplines, and conduct a feasible and potentially impactful translational research project.

The Sidney R. Baer, Jr. Foundation Fellowship in Clinical Neurosciences is a joint effort between the neurology and psychiatry departments at BIDMC, designed as a three-year fellowship including both clinical and research mentoring and training. Fellows will be matched with two mentors: one from the psychiatry faculty, and one from the neurology faculty at Harvard Medical School. Seed funding and appropriate mentoring and support from the Harvard community will be provided for the research project. Qualified candidates must be board certified in neurology or psychiatry, and have independent research goals and clinical interests.

We are now accepting applications for a start date of July 1, 2019.

To apply, please send the following to Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD
c/o Alisha Wilkinson ( arwilkin@bidmc.harvard.edu ) by March 16, 2018:

    1. Curriculum vitae (NIH format)
    2. One-page statement of experience and career goals
