Position: Research Assistant
Institution: University College London
Department: UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for a Research Assistant to work within the research group investigating motor cortex electrophysiology and plasticity using non-invasive brain stimulation, in particular transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), at the department of clinical and movement neurosciences, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology. The overall program of work will explore how we can individualise and optimize TDCS application using current modelling and dose control to increase motor learning. The ultimate goal is to apply the optimized tDCS method to increase the efficiency of post-stroke upper limb motor rehabilitation
Requirements: The successful candidate must have an MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience or equivalent degree in Neuroscience area and experience in data acquisition and analysis of motor and sensory evoked potentials using simultaneous TMS, EEG and PNS during tDCS. Experience in current modelling application using ROAST software is essential. Additional experience using Signal software for data acquisition as well as creating code for data extraction on Matlab software is also essential
