Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Clinical & Experimental Epilepsy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The post holder will be working on a project that involves implantation of novel grids of graphene-based transistor arrays to record and characterise seizure propagation and/or cortical spreading depression (CSD) in various rodent models of epilepsy and migraine. These devices will additionally be used to test whether certain pharmacological or gene therapy approaches can suppress seizures/CSD in these models
Requirements: Applicants must have an Honours degree (minimum 2: 1) in Biomedical Science, Physics or a related discipline and a Higher Degree in Neuroscience, Physiology, Electrical Engineering or a related subject. Experience in electrophysiology is essential
