Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) seeks to hire a Professional Staff (faculty) member to lead a research program in the area of neural signal processing. The position will formally be housed in BME within the Lerner Research Institute, however it is expected that the individual will build an interdisciplinary and collaborative research program that involves scientists and physician-scientists across multiple institutes.
The neuroscience research community at Cleveland Clinic spans the research and clinical institutes and includes neuroscientists, biomedical engineers, physicists, mathematicians, geneticists, molecular biologists, and physician scientists. Investigators within the neuroscience community are supported by one of the top and largest clinical neurological institutes in the country, comprised of more than 200 medical and surgical specialists dedicated to the treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Neuroscience research is supported by state-of-the-art molecular biology labs, small and large animal neurophysiology labs, small animal MRI, the largest single center repository of human intracranial electrophysiology data bank from patients with epilepsy (subdural grids and SEEG depth electrodes) and one of the most active and integrated neuromodulation (e.g., deep brain stimulation) centers in the country. Exceptional collaboration possibilities between laboratory and clinical scientists, and access to large populations of patients provide a unique opportunity for translational investigations.
We desire an individual with demonstrated skills in leadership, organization, grant writing, innovation, and interpersonal communication. The most attractive candidate will hold a doctorate in electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or other engineering?related field, physics, mathematics, or a related discipline, will be experienced in developing novel neural signal processing methodologies, translational research, and have a both a solid publication record in high-quality peer-reviewed journals and a funding track record that are commensurate with their current career path. The individual would be expected to establish and maintain an independent research program and to mentor junior investigators and students. Applications will be considered at the rank of Assistant, Associate, and Full Staff.
A generous multi-year start-up package is available to support this recruitment, including financial resources for salary, operations, and equipment reflecting the rank of the individual.
Interested applicants should submit:
-A letter of application
-Complete curriculum vitae
-Detailed research plan and statement of current and future research goals
-Contact details of three references
