Applications are being accepted for Doctoral and Post-Doctoral study
in the area of
Neuromuscular Biomechanics of the Hand at Cornell University.

The Doctoral Students and Post-Doctoral Fellows will work under the
direction of Prof. Francisco Valero-Cuevas in the Neuromuscular
Biomechanics Laboratory of the Sibley
School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, as well as in collaboration
with the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

Research topics include the motor control, robotics, biomechanics and surgical
rehabilitation of the human hand, with emphasis dexterous
manipulation function.

Essential Criteria: Applicants must have a strong background in
engineering, neuroscience or life sciences, and a strong interest in the
biomechanics, motor control or surgery of the human hand. Preference will
be given to applicants with research experience. English proficiency
is essential.

***Application process for Doctoral Students:
