  • Postdoctoral Position in Motor Control, Penn State

    Postdoctoral Fellow in Motor Control/Motor Neuroscience
    at the Pennsylvania State University, Department of Kinesiology

    We are currently seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Research
    Fellow to join our studies on theoretical and behavioral motor
    control. Our research focus is on the structure of variability and
    the role of stability in the acquisition and performance of skilled
    actions. The postdoctoral fellow should have background and expertise
    in at least one of the following fields: motor control and learning,
    biomechanics, nonlinear dynamics and modeling, experimental
    psychology, bioengineering. Experience with computers and programming
    (Matlab, C++, etc.) is expected.

    Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Kinesiology, Neuroscience,
    Experimental Psychology, or Physical and Engineering Sciences, with
    an academic record of scientific excellence, independent research,
    and a strong interest in an interdisciplinary approach to motor
    control. The applicant is expected to get involved in existing
    research projects but is also encouraged to bring to bear his/her
    expertise into the research project.

    The Department of Kinesiology at the Pennsylvania State University
    has a strong focus on motor control, biomechanics and neuroscience
    with 11 faculty members working on related issues. This provides a
    stimulating environment for collaborations and interdisciplinary
    research. The position will be supported by a grant from the National
    Institutes of Health. The position is for one year and renewable for
    three years.

    Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, list of publications, and
    two contact persons for letters of recommendation.
