  • PhD Students at University of Florida -- Laboratory for Rehabilitation Neuroscience

    The Laboratory for Rehabilitation Neuroscience (lrnlab.org) is seeking motivated students with a background in areas that include kinesiology, engineering, neuroscience, psychology, neuroimaging, or a related field. Funding exists for 2-3 PhD students beginning Fall 2012. The Laboratory for Rehabilitation Neuroscience is led by Drs. David Vaillancourt and Stephen Coombes. The laboratory is supported by the National Institutes of Health. Our main focus is to develop a better understanding of motor systems neuroscience and treatments for motor and pain disorders in humans. Our studies include systems neuroscience techniques that include functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), electromyography (EMG), high-density electroencephalography (EEG), and pain stimulation procedures. Electrophysiological studies take place in a 3000 square foot facility in the Laboratory for Rehabilitation Neuroscience, and advanced imaging occurs in the AMRIS facility within the McKnight Brain Institute at UF. Excellent clinical collaborations exist with the UF Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration and the UF Center for Pain Research and Behavioral Health.

    Qualified PhD students can have access to two PhD programs in either Applied Physiology and Kinesiology or Biomedical Engineering. Both programs offer students a wide range of academic courses and professional development.

    If interested, please contact one of the following Principal Investigators:
