The Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine are seeking a Diversity Coordinator. This newly created position will assist the Vice Chair and Director of Diversity and will provide administrative support for outreach initiatives related to diversity and inclusion in the Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology. Our departments are committed to expanding access to underrepresented minorities in the neurosciences and are looking for an administrative professional who is passionate about social justice and intersectionality issues, and can help us enhance and promote our diversity programs locally and nationally.
The Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University is seeking a highly motivated Life Science Research Professional (LSRP) to join an epilepsy-centered research group. Our research focuses on the so-called "GABAergic" neuronal inhibitory system in order to better understand the mechanisms that underlie normal and pathological circuit function. Our lab uses a variety of experimental techniques, including optogenetic approaches, in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology, animal surgeries, transgenic mice lines, video-EEG recordings, behavioral approaches, and immunohistochemistry.
We have postdoctoral openings for highly motivated researchers to join the research laboratory of Dr Gary Steinberg. The research focus of the lab is to understand and enhance brain repair and recovery in rodent models of stroke using stem cells or optogenetic stimulation. We are looking for an applicant interested in studying neuronal activity changes during post-stroke recovery, at the global circuit level (functional MRI) and at the cellular level (calcium imaging). Strong computational skills in analyses of imaging data and network analyses are required.
