  • post doctoral position


    A Post-doctoral position is available immediately in the Laboratory for
    Motor Control Neuroscience at the University of Montreal under the
    supervision of Professor Anatol G. Feldman.

    Currently the work under progress in the laboratory includes empirical
    tests of the equilibrium-point hypothesis in the areas of arm-trunk
    coordination in reaching, upright posture control, interlimb coordination
    and locomotion. The lab is equipped with motion capture systems, various
    electrophysiological recording devices, a double joint manipulandum robot,
    Linux & NT workstations. A new Virtual Reality lab equipped with a
    high-performance SGI multi-processor workstation, real time display units,
    haptic interfaces and force platforms, is currently under construction. The
    post-doctoral fellow will be involved in this new direction of the lab to
    study perception-action issues in human locomotion and prehension, though
    the candidate is free to pursue projects in other areas as well.

    A close collaboration exists with the laboratory directed by Professor
    Mindy Levin, where current research includes applications of movement
    research to investigate pathologies such as hemiparetic stroke, Parkinson's
    disease and cerebral palsy. There are also active collaborations with
    several leading Neuroscience labs in the US, Canada, France, the
    Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden and Russia. Previous students and
    post-doctoral fellows from the lab have gone on to pursue positions in
    leading universities and the industry.

    The laboratory is part of the Rehabilation Institute of Montreal ( ), member of an interdisciplinary research
    consortium in the rehabilitation sciences in the Montreal metropolitan area
    (CRIR). In addition, the laboratory is also affiliated with the Department
    of Physiology at the University of Montreal (
    ) and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering (
    ), with access to state-of-the-art facilities in Computational, Behavioral
    and Cellular/molecular Neuroscience. Montreal is one of the most beautiful
    cities of North America and home to interesting cultural and sporting
    events. It is also very safe and reasonably inexpensive to live in.

    Candidates with (or expecting) a PhD in Neuroscience, Experimental
    Psychology, Biomechanics/Kinesiology, Biomedical Engineering or Robotics
    with a good publication record, strong programming skills in C/C ++
    (openGL, graphics development, VR), Matlab and/or Labview are encouraged to
    apply with CV, copies of relevant reprints, two letters of recommendation
    and transcripts to the address below.
