PhD Position in Clinical Research in Movement Disorders (August 2020)

The Movement Disorders Research Lab, Department of Neurology / Clinical Neurosciences, CHUV / University of Lausanne, offers a position of a PhD student for 3 years.

Our research objectives are to understand better the pathophysiology of movement disorders and to explore the novel therapeutic approaches with a focus on gait disorders and non-invasive brain stimulation. The Lab is fully-equipped with state-of-art TMS, tDCS-tACS, ENMG, EEG and combined EMG-EEG recordings, kinematic and gait analysis with inertial monitors and robotic devices, and neuro-navigation. We collaborate with a gait lab and have access to imaging facilities.

Current Project

The candidate will focus on a multi-center therapeutic study of gait disorders in Parkinson’s disease and atypical Parkinson disorders and will participate in neurophysiological investigations of the pathophysiology.

Candidate requirements

      The successful candidate must qualify to enter a PhD program and have a      solid background in medicine, neurophysiology or neuroscience.

            Experience in clinical research with patients.

            Being motivated, a team player and empathetic with our patients.

Post-Doctoral Position at 100% (Geneva; 07/2020)

The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Geneva is opening a

Post-Doctoral Position at 100%

in the research group of Professor Adrian Guggisberg, Division of Neurorehabilitation, Department of Clinical Neurosciences.

The Imaging-Assisted Neurorehabilitation Laboratory investigates brain plasticity in patients with acquired brain injury and the effects of new treatment approaches based on neurotechnology.

The candidate will be responsible for the management of clinical trials as well as the supervision of PhD students involved in these trials. This project, funded by the SNF and started in 2017, aims to improve upper limb motor rehabilitation in stroke patients using two therapies based on novel neurotechnology. The first applies transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to patients with moderate impairment. The second uses a brain-computer interface in patients with severe impairment. The involvement in other projects of the group or the development of own projects with personal funds is possible according to the candidate’s interests.

Title and skills required

  • Ph.D. in neuroscience, medicine, psychology, biology, engineering or similar
  • Interest in clinical research
  • Previous experience with electroencephalography (EEG) experiment and analyses
  • Previous experience with noninvasive brain stimulation (TMS, tDCS)
  • Experience with braincomputer interface technology is advantageous
  • Ability to conduct research independently as well as work in a team environment
  • Rigor and methodological skills in experimental research
  • Good conversational French; good written English

 

Taking up office

1 October 2020

 

Further information

  • 100% oneyear contract, renewable for one year.
