*EEG and Machine Learning Postdoctoral Position at Stanford for
PersonalizedMedicine*

The Laboratory of Amit Etkin, MD PhD at Stanford University is currently
accepting
applications for a postdoctoral fellow focused on machine learning and other
sophisticated analyses of electroencephalography (EEG) data. This position
is
funded by an NIH Director’s Pioneer Award.

The focus of the position is on creating and applying a variety of data
analytic
approaches to large EEG data sets (across individuals, or longitudinally
within-
individual) for the purpose of prediction of clinical outcome and tracking
of clinical
change. Particular emphasis is on connecting signal processing methodology
to the
classification challenges, potential use of deep learning, and building on
applications
from other related areas (e.g. brain-computer interface or other decoding
efforts). It
is anticipated that this work will contribute to development of
clinic-translatable
biomarkers, and will be part of FDA approval-directed efforts ongoing in
the lab.

The successful applicant will have a PhD in Engineering, Statistics,
Computer
Science, Neuroscience, Neurophysiology, Psychology, or related fields.
Advanced
experience with EEG data analysis and/or machine learning is required.
Additionally, strong quantitative skills and a programming background are
important. Duties will also include manuscript preparation, presentation of
findings
at conferences, and contribution to the preparation of grants. Laboratory
and
Stanford resources are extensive, MRI scanners, simultaneous EEG/fMRI,
multiple
high density EEG setups, and concurrent transcranial magnetic stimulation
(TMS)/fMRI and concurrent TMS/EEG setups. Salary commensurate with
experience. More information about our ongoing studies can be found
at: http://etkinlab.stanford.edu.

To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, a statement describing research
interests
and relevant background and the names of three recommenders, as well as
relevant
reprints/preprints of research articles to:

Amit Etkin, MD, PhD
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
