Post doc and PhD positions: Neuromuscular Physiology / Motor
Neuroscience



Location: Department of Health and Kinesiology, Texas A&M University,
College Station TX, USA.



General Information: These positions are supported by funding from the
NIA to study the influence of aging on learning fine novel motor tasks.
Specifically we are interested to find out how amplified motor output
variability and altered activation of the antagonist muscles in older
adults influence learning of fine novel motor tasks. The experiments
will take place in the Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory at Texas A&M
University. The academic environment within the lab and campus is
outstanding as it provides interaction with Motor Control and Learning
faculty, Neuroscience faculty, Engineering faculty, Physical Therapists,
and Neurosurgeons.



Job description: Each position provides an opportunity to work with
human subjects and cutting edge technology in Motor Neuroscience.



The ideal Post-doc candidate will have:

* A Ph.D. in Kinesiology, Physiology, Engineering, Physics, or a
related area.

* Experience with experimental studies of human movements (e.g.
EMG, movement tracking systems).

* Matlab programming proficiency.

* Experience with statistical analysis.

* Competency in written and spoken English.



The ideal Ph.D. candidate will have:

* B.S. or M.S. in Kinesiology, Physiology, Engineering, Physics,
or a related area.

* Interest in Motor Neuroscience or Neuromuscular Physiology.

* Matlab programming proficiency.

* Competency in written and spoken English.



Salary: Salary is commensurate with experience. Student and post-doc
benefits are available.



Start date: Immediate - early 2009.



Please send a summary of research interests, CV and contact information
from three references to Dr. Evangelos A. Christou Ph.D.
(eachristou@hlkn.tamu.edu).

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
