Neural Engineering Research at RIC: Coolidge Scientist

The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) is pleased to announce
the availability of a new research scientist position, which will
provide research and training opportunities for engineers or
neuroscientists interested in neural engineering and related areas.
Possible research areas include, but are not limited to,
brain-machine interfaces, robotics-assisted rehabilitation, novel
approaches towards electrical stimulation or neural recording in
human subjects, and areas of computational neuroscience relevant to
human neuromotor functions, broadly defined.

The position is offered for 2 years (minimum), with an annual stipend
of $50,000. The specific research areas are open, although
applicants are encouraged to identify sponsors or collaborators
amongst the faculty of our group. For a description of projects and
programs please visit our website (www.smpp.northwestern.edu).
Applicants are encouraged to contact laboratory directors or the
chair of the search to discuss potential project areas.

The scientist will have extensive contact with the research and
clinical personnel at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, a
leading research hospital and a longtime partner of the neuroscience
institute, and of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering
departments at Northwestern. The research activities will be housed
within the Sensory Motor performance Program, a multidisciplinary
research group working in themes related to human motor function in
normal and neurologically impaired human subjects

The candidate must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and a solid
background in engineering, neuroscience, or related areas. The
position may be suitable for a postdoctoral researcher, or for a more
experienced researcher who may wish to secure salary supplementation
from other sources.

Applicants should provide a current CV, a statement of research
interests, a brief description of potential research areas for
collaboration, and a list of 3 potential referees with email and
phone numbers attached. The starting date for the position is
