Join Cedars-Sinai and become part of a team that is at the forefront of medical advancements. Work alongside physician-scientists and researchers who are making life-saving medical and scientific breakthroughs. Our researchers develop some of the most advanced clinical trials in the world
Do you have a passion for helping human kind?
As a member of our team, you will bring your dedication and expertise to collaborate on clinical trials and assist on research studies. You will provide support and service to faculty and staff conducting research. This includes coordination of staff support, provision of centralized systems, regulatory expertise, and quality assurance. Your work will support our mission of rapidly translating research discoveries into safe, effective treatments.
Under the guidance and mentorship of Dr. Ueli Rutishauser in the department of neurosurgery and working closely with other postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, undergraduate students, research associates, and collaborators, the postdoctoral fellow will obtain further training in neuroscience. The postdoctoral scholar will participate in systems neuroscience research throughout the training period by utilizing intracranial recordings in humans to study the basic mechanisms of learning and memory. Analyzes and interprets data. May assist in preparation of grant proposals. Participates in publications and presentations as author or co-author. This NIH-funded position is an outstanding opportunity to receive training in a highly productive and cutting-edge research program. Not responsible for generating grant funds. Specifically, but not limited to, you will:
1. Design and perform human intracranial electrophysiology experiments.
2. Design, implement, and use computational techniques to process and analyze electrophysiological and behavioral data.
3. Utilize a programming language (MATLAB) to implement analysis procedures and analyze and interpret the results.
4. Utilize, develop and extend complex data analysis programs in MATLAB or similar and utilize these programs to develop biological insights from complex electrophysiological datasets.
5. Design, implement, and continuously improve behavioral experiments using MATLAB or similar.
6. Interact respectfully and efficiently with patients, caregivers, and hospital clinical staff.
Providing healthcare for more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai has evolved into one of the most dynamic and highly renowned medical centers in the world. Along with caring for patients, Cedars-Sinai is a hub for biomedical research and a training center for future physicians and other healthcare professionals. This attracts exceptional talent to Cedars-Sinai, including world-renowned physician-scientists who seek a place where they can both conduct research and see patients--the ideal formula for discovery and its translation into cures. Our patients benefit from access to doctors at the top of their fields, and our researchers have an ideal community in which to study the impact of healthcare challenges, and reflect that knowledge in their research. The greater Los Angeles area in which Cedars-Sinai resides possesses unparalleled cultural and ethnic diversity which offers outstanding opportunities for translational and clinical research... and a dynamic environment for medical education.Although community based, Cedars-Sinai is a major teaching hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Cedars-Sinai has highly competitive graduate medical education programs in more than 50 specialty and subspecialty areas, a graduate program in biomedical sciences and translational medicine, a clinical scholars program directed towards junior physicians with aspirations to become clinical scientists, and post graduate training opportunities.There are more than 250 full-time faculty members at Cedars-Sinai. The voluntary medical staff, comprised of more than 2,200 specialty board-certified or board-qualified physicians, represent all of the specialties and subspecialties and collaborate with full-time medical staff in the teaching responsibilities of the graduate medical education programs.
