    Fellowship in Clinical Neuroscience and Stroke Rehabilitation
    The Neuroscience Group within the Department of Medicine, University
    of Auckland, is recruiting a Research Fellow.
    This position is for a minimum of 2 years, is 100% research, and will
    provide opportunities for inter-disciplinary and translational research

    The successful individual will have successfully completed a PhD with
    experience investigating human motor cortex physiology using
    Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Experience with Magnetic
    Resonance Imaging (MRI), particularly diffusion weighted imaging, is an
    advantage. Applicants should have an established record of experience
    with at least one of these techniques, and preferably at least one
    first-authored publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
    There will be three components to the Fellowship. The Fellow will be
    expected to

    * learn basic clinical assessment of people with stroke and
    participate in stroke rounds at the Auckland City Hospital Stroke Unit.
    * perform and analyse the results of advanced neurophysiological
    and magnetic resonance imaging investigations.
    * communicate the results of their research in community and
    scientific forums and publish their research in high impact scientific

    The Fellow will join the Neuroscience Group within the Department of
    Medicine, University of Auckland at Auckland City Hospital. They will be
    mentored by Dr Cathy Stinear, Senior Lecturer, Neuroscience Group, with
    clinical mentoring from Professor Alan Barber, Neurologist and Director
    of the Auckland City Hospital Stroke Unit, and neurophysiologic
    mentoring from Associate Professor Winston Byblow, Movement Neuroscience
    Laboratory. The Fellow will have access to the facilities of the
    Neurology Department of Auckland City Hospital, the Neuroscience Group
    within the Department of Medicine and the Movement Neuroscience
    Laboratory. They will also have access to the Centre for Advanced MRI,
    located on-site. This cross discipline environment will provide the
    Fellow with opportunities to engage in translational and applied
    clinical neuroscience research.

    The University of Auckland is New Zealand's premier research
    university, with a strong network of neuroscientists across two
    faculties. The University's location gives you access to all the
    benefits of New Zealand's largest city. With world-class concerts,
    sporting events, nightlife, beautiful beaches and harbours, and stunning
    parks, it's no surprise that Auckland was recently rated in an
    international survey as one of the world's top 10 cities.

    Salary will be commensurate with research experience and
    accomplishments, and there is some provision for relocation costs.

    CLOSING DATE: Dec 15, 2008.
