Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Motor Control and Rehabilitation
University of Michigan

A two-year post-doctoral fellowship funded through a T-32 NIH training program is available for research focused on sensorimotor control and rehabilitation in the Division of Kinesiology and the Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan. Current research involves upper limb and hand coordination in adults with cerebral palsy and the effectiveness of internet-based sensorimotor training to improve function. Opportunities exist to explore related motor control areas including somatosensory function in older adults and individuals with impaired sensorimotor performance. A strong desire to develop an independent line of research is encouraged.

Interested candidates must have been awarded a PhD within the past 4 years and be able to provide evidence of strong writing skills such as peer-reviewed publications in the field of motor control or related area. Experience with 3-D motion capture systems and related software programming skills highly desirable. Candidates must be highly motivated, be able to work independently, and be willing to combine theoretical and clinical approaches in the study of motor performance and rehabilitation. Preference will be given to candidates with previous clinical or human studies experience.

Interested candidates should submit electronically a letter describing their research interests, curriculum vitae, and the names and addresses of two references to Susan H. Brown, PhD, Division of Kinesiology, University of Michigan (shcb@umich.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately.
