  • Post-doc opportunity in Neural Control-Cleveland Clinic

    A postdoctoral position is available immediately in Neural Control
    within the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Cleveland Clinic
    Foundation. The initial appointment will be one year with the
    possibility of two additional years following evaluation.

    Current projects are focused on determining the effects of deep brain
    stimulation on upper extremity motor function and learning in
    Parkinson's disease patients. Other projects include: determine the
    effectiveness of a robotic intervention for upper extremity
    rehabilitation of patients with stroke and general motor neuroscience
    research related to the effects of aging and motor function.

    The ideal candidate will have earned a Ph.D. in the area of
    biomechanics, motor control, biomedical engineering, neuroscience or
    related field. Experience conducting motor control\biomechanics
    investigations and analyzing and interpreting kinematic and kinetic data
    is necessary. Experience with data collection systems such as the
    OPTOTRAK and force\torque transducers and analysis with Matlab or
    LabView is desired.

    The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Lerner Research Institute and affiliated
    institutions provide an outstanding interactive environment for
    biomedical research training, with state-of-the-art support facilities
    and competitive salaries and benefits. Current collaborations within
    the Neural Control area include: Center for Neurological Restoration-CCF
    and Rehabilitation Medicine-CCF and the Cleveland VA FES Center.

    Interested applicants should send their curriculum vitae, contact
    information for three references, and a letter describing their research
    interests to Jay L. Alberts,
