A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Neural Control
within the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Cleveland Clinic
Foundation. The initial appointment will be one year with the
possibility of two additional years following evaluation.



Current projects are focused on determining the effects of deep brain
stimulation on upper extremity motor function and learning in
Parkinson's disease patients. Other projects include: determine the
effectiveness of a robotic intervention for upper extremity
rehabilitation of patients with stroke and general motor neuroscience
research related to the effects of aging and motor function.



The ideal candidate will have earned a Ph.D. in the area of
biomechanics, motor control, biomedical engineering, neuroscience or
related field. Experience conducting motor control\biomechanics
investigations and analyzing and interpreting kinematic and kinetic data
is necessary. Experience with data collection systems such as the
OPTOTRAK and force\torque transducers and analysis with Matlab or
LabView is desired.



The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Lerner Research Institute and affiliated
institutions provide an outstanding interactive environment for
biomedical research training, with state-of-the-art support facilities
and competitive salaries and benefits. Current collaborations within
the Neural Control area include: Center for Neurological Restoration-CCF
and Rehabilitation Medicine-CCF and the Cleveland VA FES Center.



Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae, contact
information for three references, and a letter describing their research
interests to Jay L. Alberts, albertj@ccf.org.
