    symptoms of Parkinson's disease. In addition, the candidate will
    collaborate on investigations into the underlying neural mechanisms
    contributing to locomotor and cognitive dysfunction. The successful
    candidate will be responsible for overseeing and scheduling therapy
    delivery, data capture using motion analysis technology,
    post-processing, database management, and synthesis of results into
    journal publications.
