The Department of Neurology invite applications for a PostDoctoral scholar position in Epilepsy Research. This position is funded by an NIH T32 training grant. The multidisciplinary Training Program in Epilepsy Research supports diverse approaches to (1) understanding fundamental neurobiological processes leading to epilepsy and associated cognitive and emotional problems, and (2) translational research.
