  • Research position in movement science and rehabilitation

    Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute, internationally known for its research in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation, seeks a scientist to join its expanding program in movement science and motor disability. Applicants should have a background in movement science and interest in translational research, particularly as applied to aspects of mobility in neurologic populations. Early career investigators with postdoctoral research training, as well as mid-career scientists, are welcome to apply.

    The institute scientist position at MRRI is a full-time independent research position that is comparable to a university faculty position. The primary expectation is that applicants would develop and direct an independent program of research in the mobility domain of rehabilitation. The research program may fall anywhere along the translational continuum from understanding basic mechanisms of motor performance and recovery to theory-based treatment advancement in rehabilitation. This position offers numerous opportunities for collaboration with other MRRI investigators and skilled MossRehab clinicians, and with colleagues in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, including those involved in structural and functional neuroimaging, TMS, and tDCS. Office and laboratory space are available in a newly renovated research building, with ready access to relevant patient populations and gait and motion laboratory facilities.

    Albert Einstein Healthcare Network is proud to offer our employees unparalleled career opportunities including competitive compensation, attractive benefits plan including medical/dental/vision coverage, generous vacation time, and tuition reimbursement. EOE
