Responsibilities

We are seeking a Clinical Research specialist to support the research efforts within the Barrow Center for Neuromodulation (BCN). Neuromodulation is defined as “the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body.”  In appropriate patients, this growing class of therapies, in common use since the 1980s, can help restore function or relieve symptoms that have a neurological basis.  At the BCN, we currently have a variety of studies monitoring the effects of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s disease, Essential tremor, Dystonia, Epilepsy and OCD and Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) for chronic pain. We are also studying the effects if DBS on memory and cognition. With neuromodulation technology changing rapidly, and therapy indications evolving, this is a very exciting and sought after scientific area for candidates to expand their research careers.
