  • Graduate and Post-Graduate Study in Neuromuscular Biomechanicsof the Hand

    Applications are being accepted for Doctoral and Post-Doctoral study
    in the area of
    Neuromuscular Biomechanics of the Hand at Cornell University.

    The Doctoral Students and Post-Doctoral Fellows will work under the
    direction of Prof. Francisco Valero-Cuevas in the Neuromuscular
    Biomechanics Laboratory of the Sibley
    School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, as well as in collaboration
    with the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City.

    Research topics include the motor control, robotics, biomechanics and surgical
    rehabilitation of the human hand, with emphasis dexterous
    manipulation function.

    Essential Criteria: Applicants must have a strong background in
    engineering, neuroscience or life sciences, and a strong interest in the
    biomechanics, motor control or surgery of the human hand. Preference will
    be given to applicants with research experience. English proficiency
    is essential.

    ***Application process for Doctoral Students:
    Applicants should visit the Cornell University web
    page for perspective graduate students
    ( A

    Student Support: Besides the opportunities listed in the Cornell University
    web page listed above, a limited number of Teaching and Research
    Assistantships are available for outstanding candidates.
    Application Deadlines: Jan. 15 (without aid, May 1).

    ***Application process for Post-Doctoral Fellows:
    Please contact Prof. Valero-Cuevas directly.
