    Postdoctoral Fellowship in Human Movement Neuroscience
    Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation, University of Alberta

    The Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta,
    Edmonton, Alberta invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the
    Human Neurophysiology Laboratory (start date to be determined).

    The successful applicant will possess a PhD in an area related to the neural
    control of human movement. This individual will participate in a research
    program designed to address questions related to: 1) roles for sensory
    feedback in the control of movement; 2) neural control of motor unit
    discharge; 3) contributions from the motor cortex to movement control; and 4)
    functional electrical stimulation of human muscle.

    The appointment will be for two years. The successful candidate will be
    expected to teach one course per year but the primary focus will be on
    research activities including initiating research projects, grant writing, and
    manuscript preparation.

    The Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation serves approximately 950
    undergraduate and graduate students, and offers several degree programs: BPE,
    BA (Recreation, Sport, & Tourism), BSc Kinesiology, MSc, MA, and PhD. The
    University of Alberta is home to the Centre for Neuroscience, an
    interdisciplinary group conducting research across a broad range of the
    neurosciences. This group is particularly strong in motor control neuroscience
    and includes scientists studying the neural mechanisms of movement and
    rehabilitation. Further information about the University of Alberta and the
    Faculty may be obtained from and and
