Location: Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, Cleveland, OH USA
Reports To: Principal Investigator: Svetlana Pundik, MD
A postdoctoral fellow position in the field of clinical neuroscience and neuro-rehabilitation is available at Cleveland VA Medical Research and Education Foundation, a partner of Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center. This is an exciting opportunity to join a laboratory that investigates mechanisms of neuroplasticity and develops rehabilitation techniques to restore upper and lower limb function after stroke and traumatic brain injury. The team studies both brain stimulation techniques and peripherally administered rehabilitation methods.
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. The incumbent will provide support to the Principal Investigator with the responsibility of coordinating and assisting with the advancement of the program and facility development activities.
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.
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.
