Clinical Description
Dario J. Englot, M.D., Ph.D., received his masters and doctorate degrees in Neuroscience and his medical degree from Yale University. He completed a residency in Neurological Surgery at University of California and a fellowship in Functional Neurosurgery and Epilepsy at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Englot joined the Vanderbilt faculty in 2017 as Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery, Radiology and Radiological Sciences, and Biomedical Engineering and serves as Surgical Director of Epilepsy. His research centers on brain network analysis in neurological disorders using neuroimaging and electrophysiology, with a particular focus in epilepsy.

Available Postdoctoral Position Details
Posted: 9/9/2017

Position: Post-Doctoral Fellow in Human Neuroimaging

Institution: Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science (VUIIS)

Position Description: We are seeking a post-doctoral researcher to work in the Brain Imaging and Electrophysiology Network (BIEN) laboratory (www.englotlab.com) at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee to begin on or about July 1, 2019. Dario Englot, MD, PhD is a neurosurgeon-scientist and the principal investigator of the BIEN lab using functional and structural MRI techniques, as well as intracranial EEG, to better understand brain network pathophysiology in epilepsy and other neurological disorders. Brain networks involved in normal cognitive processes will also be examined in the lab.

This post-doc position will be focused on neuroimaging connectivity patterns in patients before and after surgery, and relating imaging signals to intracranial EEG data in the same patients. A major goal of the lab is to understand how seizures in epilepsy patients lead to dysfunction in brain networks related to cognition, behavior, and consciousness. We are also interested in how network analysis can improve clinical treatment, and in how networks may change after surgery.

Requirements: This position requires a Ph.D. in engineering, neuroscience, or a related field, with proficiency in MATLAB and/or computer programming. Prior experience in imaging is preferred but not required. Both pending Ph.D. graduates and individuals who have completed previous post-doc training will be considered. An excellent academic record is critical, including a history of high-quality publications, presentations at national meetings, and experience in submitting grant applications. Applicants must be reliable, honest, hard-working, independent, and possess excellent communication skills. A minimum time commitment of one year is expected, with the potential opportunity for renewal. Salary will be commensurate with University guidelines, and benefits will be provided.

How to Apply: Please email a CV, a brief statement of research interests and career goals, and the contact information for two to three references to Dr. Dario Englot at dario.englot@vanderbilt.edu.
