Laboratory Manager Position (Full-Time)

The Klab4Recovery Research Laboratory at the City University of New York department of Physical Therapy, School of Health Sciences, College of Staten Island invites applications for a grant-funded Laboratory Manager Position. The goal of the K-lab is to develop noninvasive rehabilitation strategies based on neurophysiological evidence for people with spinal cord injury (SCI). The position is available for 1 year with possibility of renewal based on performance, and is supported by the New York State Department of Health, Spinal Cord Injury Research Board. Our research uses a multidisciplinary approach involving electrophysiological techniques (EMG, TMS, spinal reflex conditioning protocols, transspinal stimulation), and kinematics (motion capture, force), combined with advanced signal processing and analysis to better understand brain-spinal function, impairment, and recovery following novel rehabilitation interventions.
Working in our multidisciplinary, energetic research team, the Laboratory Manager will assume a major role in all daily activities of the laboratory. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:
-Communication with study participants. Including recruiting, screening, enrollment, and scheduling of participants.
-Arrangement of human subject databases.
-Maintenance of coded data for each funded grant.
-Contribute to data collection and grant administrative work.
-Contribute to the laboratory’s web-based communication.
-Maintains and orders of experimental supplies and communication with vendors.

In case a successful applicant has engineering background, opportunities exist for development of sophisticated mathematical algorithms for data acquired through non-invasive electrophysiological methods, and collaboration with electrical-electronic engineers in the motor control field.

The following qualifications are required:
- M.Sc. degree in biomedical engineering, health sciences, or closely related field.
In addition, the following qualifications are preferred:
-Strong communication skills.
-Prior research experience with human subjects is preferred but not a requirement.

To apply, please send your résumé and a cover letter summarizing relevant research experience, and interests to Prof. Maria Knikou at Maria.Knikou@csi.cuny.edu
