Job Description: SUMMARY: The Brown Institute for Brain Science (BIBS) faculty members pioneer research that illuminates how neural circuits give rise to complex behavior, generating benefits for society as well as the scientific community. Scientists within BIBS are uncovering molecular, cellular, and circuit mechanisms that underlie healthy brain function and understanding how those mechanisms malfunction in disease. Scientists are pursuing research revealing better understanding and better treatment of epilepsy; autism; ALS, Parkinson\u2019s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders and movement disorders; mental illness such as depression, suicide, obsessive compulsive disorder. BIBS scientists and engineers are creating new tools that give the scientific community unprecedented views into understanding brain function; medical devices that can read out brain signals and adjust brain circuits; software that can more rapidly and smartly analyze brain and behavioral data to better predict when someone will have a seizure, who is at risk for attempting suicide, or what drug is best for a patient. Researchers are also building artificial vision systems that see like humans do, leading to a new generation of smart technology. BIBS maximizes these impacts by creating an environment at Brown that allows faculty, postdocs and students to innovate, create and advance knowledge in brain science without constraint.
