We study the neural mechanisms of chronic pain and neurological disorders in patients with invasive and non-invasive electrical stimulation implants and develop novel tools and methods for clinical applications.
We are always looking for talented people at all levels (undergraduate, technician, graduate student, and postdoc) and from all backgrounds. We currently have openings at the graduate student and postdoctoral levels. If you are interested in joining the Telkes Lab, please email the following materials to Dr. Ilknur Telkes (ude.uaf.htlaeh@sekleti).
- Curriculum Vitae
- Cover letter describing your research experience and future interests
- Names of three references
Funded by NIH, we are seeking highly motivated candidates who received PhD recently or in the near future to join a multidisciplinary team. Successful candidates are expected to have a strong quantitative background with PhD in biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, computational neuroscience, or a related field. Strong interest and demonstrated experience in experimental investigation or analyzing of biomedical or clinical data are desired. Ability to work independently and collaboratively, and outstanding writing skills essential. Candidates with research expertise in any of the following areas are welcome to apply.
- Biomedical signal processing (e.g., EEG/MEG, LFP, wearable sensors)
- Modeling, simulation, and computation methods (comfortable working with MATLAB, Simulink)
- EEG based brain-computer interface
- Machine Learning
Outstanding candidates interested in working on neural signatures of chronic pain, movement disorders, Alzheimer disease and related dementias are welcome to contact Dr. Telkes at ude.uaf.htlaeh@sekleti and send inquiries including (1) a statement of interest and (2) a complete CV.
Official applications should be submitted to major degree programs including integrative biology-biomedical science (IBBS), electrical engineering/neural engineering, and neuroscience graduate program (NGP) at Florida Atlantic University.
