  • Funded PhD positions in Cognitive Motor Neuroscience at Michigan State U (East Lansing, MI)

    The Motor Neuroscience Lab (MNL) at Michigan State University is recruiting PhD students for Fall 2022. Research projects are primarily (but not exclusively) in upper limb adaptive motor control, using behavioral and electrophysiological approaches (EEG, TMS); the lab has well-established collaborations with the Departments of Psychology, Engineering, Neurology, and the Neuroscience Program. Visit the lab website for more information.

    Candidates with a background in human movement, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, psychology, physiology, or a related field are strongly encouraged to apply. Prior research experience and good scientific writing skills are highly desirable, as is programming knowledge (e.g., Matlab, Python, R).

    Resources in the MNL include motion recording systems (joysticks, digitizing tablet, bimanual Kinarm endpoint robot, 8-camera motion analysis system), portable and stationary AMTI force plates, a Delsys EMG system, a BrainVision 32-channel EEG system, and two Magstim transcranial magnetic stimulators (TMS).

    The Department of Kinesiology at Michigan State is one of the top ranked departments in the country, and PhD students will receive excellent mentoring. For more information about applying to the graduate program, please visit

    If you are interested and would like additional information, please email Dr. Florian Kagerer ( with: (i) a statement of interest that explains your research interests and skills, and (ii) your CV. Deadline for early applications is October 15, 2021; selected candidates will be invited to a lab & campus tour in November.
