The Center for Bioelectronic Medicine (CBEM) at the Feinstein Institute in Manhasset, New York, is recruiting for positions in the fields of Neurophysiology, Neural Engineering, Microfabrication, Biomedical Science, Bioelectronics and Biosensing, and Neural Decoding and Data Analytics.

Please email a CV, a statement of interest (250 words), and contact information for three references to CBEM@northwell.edu.

The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, New York, has multiple openings within its new Center for Bioelectronic Medicine (CBEM) to develop neurotechnology for multiple diseases and conditions. Recruits will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to determine the nature of neural control over molecular, cellular and organ functions of the body, the parts of the brain that regulate those nerves, and the signals that the brain receives to monitor cell and organ function.  Projects will focus on determining which nerve fibers exert control, the types of signals those fibers use, and how these signals can be manipulated to treat diseases and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, paralysis, Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes, cancer and others. Openings are available in the fields of neurophysiology, microfabrication, bioelectronics and biosensing, neural decoding and data analytics.

Biomedical Science Laboratory
As a member of the Biomedical Science Team, candidates will focus on investigating the role of ascending and descending neural pathways in the control of adaptive immune function. ‚ÄčThe research focus of the lab is to develop nerve-stimulating technologies to regulate the molecular targets underlying disease. Position(s) available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Kevin J. Tracey:
  • Postdoctoral Fellow (PhD or MD/PhD with electrophysiology skills) will interact with a wide range of researchers in a dynamic and productive environment, bridging basic science with clinical research. Candidates are expected to have strong skills in major biochemistry and cell biology techniques, animal handling, primary cultures and quantitative data analysis. A strong immunology background, experience with animal surgery, molecular biology, and microscopy would be an asset.
Applicants interested in the postdoctoral fellow position should send a brief description of research interests and curriculum vitae, including contact information for three references, to Ms. Dee Prieto, (dprieto@northwell.edu) Administrative Director, Laboratory of Biomedical Science.

 
Microfabrication Laboratory
As a member of the Microfabrication Team, candidates will develop neural electrodes (for neural stimulation and sensing) and specialized sensors to detect bio-markers, enzymes, electrochemical changes and sensors with “lab-on-a-chip” functionality. Candidates will exhibit expertise about clean room facilities and capabilities, as well as thin film processes. Positions available:
  • Investigators (PhD in Biomedical/Electrical/Computer/Com. Sci./Neural Engineering/Material Science/Physics, 5+ yrs experience) to lead research teams in microfabrication, bioelectronics and biosensing, and neural decoding and data analytics; and
