MGH Neurology Research Staff Assistant III

This position will assist the Director of the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery (CNTR) and the BrainGate clinical trials in administrative and research grant management tasks. Under the direction of Dr. Leigh Hochberg, the position will be responsible for performing comprehensive administrative services and administrative duties to assist Dr. Hochberg, with occasional support of Dr. Sydney Cash,Dr. Brian Edlow, and Dr. Eric Rosenthal. Must be a high performer with well developed organizational and communication skills capable of working fairly independently to produce consistently high quality work with minimal supervision and guidance, while seeking guidance as appropriate. Daily responsibilities will include maintaining Dr. Hochberg’s clinical and research calendars, scheduling meetings, calendar management, preparing and distributing emails, forms, and reports which are often of a sensitive/confidential nature, and coordinating activities with other researchers. Additional duties include maintaining the BrainGate research supplies, and processing patient and staff reimbursements.

This position will also provide intermittent support to core CNTR faculty whose primary offices are at MGH-101 Merrimac St., including physician-scientist faculty (Dr. Hochberg, Cash, Edlow, Lin, Rubin, Rosenthal, and Young) and science faculty (Drs. Bodien and Paulk).

This position may require occasional (no more than one day per week) work at Brown University.

The position will possess expert knowledge of the BrainGate research and CNTR routine as well as understanding of the organization, programs and procedures related to the BrainGate and CNTR faculty and team. Interacts professionally with all levels of the organization including physicians, nurses, patients, visitors and others outside of MGH. Interacts closely with colleagues at affiliated medical centers and universities across the US.

Laboratory Manager – Shenoy Lab (Stanford University)

The Shenoy lab at Stanford University is seeking an experienced, self-motivated Lab Manager to manage the day-to-day operations of Dr. Krishna Shenoy’s lab on-site at Stanford University. The Shenoy lab conducts neuroscience, neuroengineering, and translation research to better understand how the brain controls movement and to design medical systems to assist people with paralysis.

Clinical Neurotechnology Research Assistant – Stanford University

The Clinical Neurotechnology Research Assistant is primarily responsible for the performance of clinical neurotechnology research in the homes of clinical trial participants with tetraplegia (quadriplegia). These responsibilities include the careful execution and documentation of research sessions studying the safety and efficacy of investigational medical devices and novel, neurally-controlled assistive interfaces (“brain-computer interfaces”) for people with paralysis or communication impairments.

Postdoctoral Research Associates

As part of our ongoing clinical trials of an intracortically implanted neural interface system (BrainGate), we seek enthusiastic individuals with expertise in computational and systems neuroscience, intracortical neurophysiology, machine learning, or neuroengineering to join our internationally recognized research team. Our work focuses on developing brain-computer interfaces to restore communication and functional independence for people with paralysis. We also conduct fundamental human neuroscience research in movement control, cognition, and attention. As a highly multidisciplinary endeavor, our team includes a tight-knit collaborative group of neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians, and clinicians. Fellows will join the rich research community at the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, working in close collaboration with colleagues at Brown University, Stanford University, and the Providence VA Medical Center.

If interested, please email Daniel Rubin, M.D., Ph.D. ([email protected]) to learn more.

Postdoctoral Research Associates

We have postdoctoral research opportunities in areas that include, but are not limited to analyzing neuronal ensemble activity toward the improvement of decoding intended movement, harnessing intracortical signals for the development of communication interfaces for persons who are locked-in, developing new real-time decoding strategies, signal processing, and post-processing algorithms, and developing the interfaces for converting cortical neuronal activity into the real-time movement of a multi-articulated prosthetic limb, robotic limb/assistive device, or functional electrical stimulation system.

Inquiries should be directed to the laboratory of Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD, c/o Ms. Beth Travers.

T32 Postdoctoral Training Program

Jonathan Rosand, MD, MSc and Leigh Hochberg, MD, PhD are now accepting applications for the NIH-funded T32 Postdoctoral Training Program in Recovery and Restoration of CNS Health and Function. The program is open to post-doctoral (MD or MD/PhD) clinician-scientists and post-doctoral (PhD) neuroengineers/computational neuroscientists to train under a multidisciplinary training faculty from anesthesia, biomedical engineering, computational neuroscience, neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, psychiatry, and radiology.

The research and training opportunity includes a two year, T32-funded fellowship that usually begins in July.

Please refer any questions regarding the program or eligibility to Drs. Jonathan Rosand and Leigh Hochberg.
