Post-doctoral positions at the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems

Arizona State University

Tempe, Arizona

Two post-doctoral positions are currently available at The Center for
Adaptive Neural Systems at Arizona State University. These positions
are supported by 2 on-going, NIH-funded projects that involve the
application of advanced neurotechnology and extensive neuromotor
assessment in human subjects with disabilities. The first project will
implement and assess neural-enabled upper extremity prostheses. The
human studies aspect of this work will be conducted with Drs. James
Abbas, Ken Horch, Marco Santello and Ranu Jung. The second project
will implement and assess a locomotor retraining paradigm for people
with incomplete spinal cord injury that uses adaptive electrical
stimulation. This work will be conducted with Dr. James Abbas, Ranu
Jung and Richard Herman.

The Center for Adaptive Neural Systems (http://ans.asu.edu
) is focused on developing and applying new
technology to address the complex problems presented by neurological
disability. The scope of the Center's activities includes the design and
development of new technology, the evaluation of technology in
pre-clinical trials, and the transfer of these technologies to
biomedical industry and clinical practice. Our multi-disciplinary
research group includes biomedical engineers, kinesiologists,
neuroscientists, mathematicians and clinicians.

These positions will provide experience and training in research design,
experimental techniques, and advanced analysis procedures. As with many
projects based at the Center, the two advertised positions involve
extensive collaboration with our clinical partners. The positions as
Post-doctoral Research Associate require a PhD in Bioengineering,
Kinesiology, Neuroscience or a related field. Experience in
rehabilitation engineering, neuromotor control, electrical stimulation
technology, biomechanical analysis, and/or control systems design would
be beneficial.

Applicants are requested to submit letter of application, curriculum
vitae, and contact information (name, address, phone number and email
address) for three references to:
