Computational Life Science Research Professional 1 (99568)
Stanford University is seeking a Computational Life Science Research Professional 1 to join the Tony Wyss-Coray lab in the Neurology department which research brain aging and neurodegeneration with a focus on age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. The lab is following up on earlier discoveries which showed circulatory blood factors can modulate brain structure and function, and factors from young organisms can rejuvenate old brains. Current studies focus on the molecular basis of this systemic communication with the brain by employing a combination of genetic, cell biology, and proteomics approaches in model organisms and humans.
The lab is part of the Glenn Center for Aging at Stanford University, the Stanford Neurosciences Institute’s Brain Rejuvenation Project, The NIH Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and it is funded by the American Heart Association / Allen Initiative, the National Institute on Aging, and the NOMIS Foundation.

Stanford University is seeking a Research Data Analyst 2 to manage and analyze large amounts of information, typically technical or scientific in nature, independently with minimal supervision.
The Lee Lab at Stanford University uses interdisciplinary approaches from molecular biology, medical imaging, signal processing, and genetics to analyze and manipulate preclinical systems-level brain circuits. Our ultimate goal is to understand the connectivity and function of these circuits to drive innovation of new therapies for neurological diseases.
We are seeking a data management specialist who will organize and document large sets of (primarily MR imaging) data and relevant metadata. An important task will be to curate, organize, and document a large number of past archived MRI datasets which will be used for future analysis. The ideal candidate will be collaborative, organized, and able to multitask.
The Human Motor Control and Neuromodulation Lab is part of the Stanford Movement Disorders Center within the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine. We are seeking an experienced, full-time research assistant to join a dynamic and fun diverse group of post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, research scientists, and research assistants. This is a 2-year position.
The goal of the research in the laboratory is to understand the pathophysiology of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease to create more effective therapies. At Stanford, innovations in neural interface technology have allowed us to discover how abnormal electrical brain activity contributes to disorders in movement. In the Human Motor Control and Neuromodulation Lab, the first decoding of electrical activity in deep brain structures during abnormal movement in Parkinson’s disease patients was performed using novel and investigative sensing neurostimulators. Our team has deconstructed brain activity to discover the neural code responsible for the abnormality of walking in Parkinson’s disease and can predict debilitating freezing events that can cause falls, significant morbidity, and even death. We are currently working to restore movement in Parkinson’s disease using real-time closed-loop deep brain stimulation that responds to subcortical neural signals or kinematic signals from wearable sensors in a demand-based fashion. Additional projects include the development of a remote monitoring tool for Parkinson’s disease and other disorders, as well as a new project using a novel approach for treating cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease using deep brain stimulation. The current position offers an exceptional opportunity for a motivated and intellectually curious individual to participate in rewarding and cutting-edge research in human motor control and neurophysiology in Parkinson’s disease.
The position involves direct human subject interaction and testing, the collection, organization and analysis of electrophysiological and kinematic data, and participation in the publication of results. The candidate will participate in the submission and renewal of Institutional Review Board and grant applications in conjunction with the research team and the PI. The desired candidate is a self-motivated, independent worker who is interested in facilitating the development of new research avenues. The ideal candidate would have a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience, engineering (biomedical, mechanical, electrical), biology, psychology, or a similar field. Previous experience in motor control, gait, kinematics, neuroimaging, and/or movement disorders is a plus.
