Post-Doctoral Scholar

The Networks, Neuroscience, and Neuromodulation Lab in the UCSF Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is recruiting a post-doctoral scholar to work on a foundation-funded project aimed at developing and testing personalized, circuit-targeted deep brain stimulation (DBS) as a treatment for severe treatment-resistant obsessive-compulsive disorder. The project involves the use of stereoencephalography (SEEG) to map therapeutic targets prior to implantation with a chronic DBS device. We seek a post-doc who will assist in performing acquisition of human imaging and brain recordings, and data analysis for this DBS project. This project is funded by the Foundation for OCD Research.
