  • Two DoD funded postdoc positions at UNCG and Temple University

One postdoc will be housed in Dr. Christopher Rhea’s Virtual Environment for Assessment and Rehabilitation Laboratory (VEAR Lab) at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). A second postdoc will be housed in Dr. Geoffrey Wright’s Motion Analysis and Perception (MAP) Lab at Temple University. The two postdocs will be responsible for recruiting and testing civilian and military healthy and concussed populations on a series of balance tests, including the use of an in-house developed smartphone app. While each postdoc will be housed in their primary lab, they will have the opportunity to make visits to the other university in order to experience both UNCG and Temple’s research environments. The postdocs will also be responsible for collecting data at a military site in Bethesda, MD.
