Careers

Research Position, Cleveland, Ohio

One postdoctoral fellow position is available at Cleveland Clinic’s Lerner Research Institute in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in the field of clinical neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation. This is an exciting opportunity to join a new laboratory aimed at identifying mechanisms of human plasticity in recovery and harnessing their potential through novel behavioral and neuromodulatory approaches.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in one or more ongoing clinical trials and neuroscientific studies involving brain stimulation, rehabilitation/training and structural and functional neuroimaging.

Requirements

The position requires a highly creative, motivated and independent individual with a Ph.D. in kinesiology, rehabilitation science, exercise science/physiology, biomechanics and movement science, neuroscience, or biomedical engineering. Candidates must demonstrate this experience through a record of relevant publications. Strong laboratory and clinical research skills, ability to lead as well as work well in a team, an understanding of human neuro-motor control in health and disease, and basic knowledge of human neuro-imaging would be desirable.

Past medical research is not required, but candidates must be willing to perform experiments in clinical settings. The successful candidate will be expected to interface with clinical staff, clinical coordinators, graduate students and fellows as well as participate in independent laboratory research. It would be desirable if candidates can start in Jan 2016.
