  • Two Research Assistant Positions in Action and Motor Control,Philadelphia, PA

    Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), a division of the Albert
    Einstein Healthcare Network and Thomas Jefferson University, has two
    openings for BA/BS- or Masterís-level research assistants. The first
    position, in the Cognition and Action Laboratory directed by Laurel Buxbaum,
    involves assisting on studies of hemispatial neglect and other disorders of
    space and action, comprising cognitive experiments, state-of-the art lesion
    analysis, and kinematic/virtual reality applications. The second position,
    in the Laboratory for Neural Control of Movement under the direction of
    Steven Jax, primarily involves assisting on studies of motor learning and
    motor control in stroke patients, and also includes behavioral and
    transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) studies of neurologically intact

    For both positions, applicants should have a strong academic background in
    cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, motor control, or a related
    field. Coursework in statistics and research methods, prior research
    experience, and computer programming skills (C++, Matlab) are strongly
    preferred. Experience working with patient populations is desireable. Both
    positions offer competitive salary and benefits (medical, dental, vision,
    tuition reimbursement). The first position is available as early as May
    (but can begin any time thereafter), and the second position will begin on
    or after July 1. Preference will be given to applicants who can commit at
    least 2 years to the position. Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute is a
    stimulating, productive environment offering many training opportunities. To
    apply for either or both of the positions, please email a cover letter and
    CV to Steven Jax at, and provide the names and email
    address of 2-3 professional references.
