Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), a division of the Albert
Einstein Healthcare Network and Thomas Jefferson University, has two
openings for BA/BS- or Masterís-level research assistants. The first
position, in the Cognition and Action Laboratory directed by Laurel Buxbaum,
involves assisting on studies of hemispatial neglect and other disorders of
space and action, comprising cognitive experiments, state-of-the art lesion
analysis, and kinematic/virtual reality applications. The second position,
in the Laboratory for Neural Control of Movement under the direction of
Steven Jax, primarily involves assisting on studies of motor learning and
motor control in stroke patients, and also includes behavioral and
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies of neurologically intact
individuals.

For both positions, applicants should have a strong academic background in
cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, motor control, or a related
field. Coursework in statistics and research methods, prior research
experience, and computer programming skills (C++, Matlab) are strongly
preferred. Experience working with patient populations is desireable. Both
positions offer competitive salary and benefits (medical, dental, vision,
tuition reimbursement). The first position is available as early as May
(but can begin any time thereafter), and the second position will begin on
or after July 1. Preference will be given to applicants who can commit at
least 2 years to the position. Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute is a
stimulating, productive environment offering many training opportunities. To
apply for either or both of the positions, please email a cover letter and
CV to Steven Jax at jaxs@einstein.edu, and provide the names and email
address of 2-3 professional references.
