Research Scientist or Postdoctoral Researcher Position, University of Michigan Human Neuromechanics Laboratory

A position as an Assistant Research Scientist or Postdoctoral Researcher is available immediately to work on studies involving high-density electroencephalography (EEG) to examine electrocortical dynamics during human locomotion. Research projects focus on overcoming technical issues with motion artifact during human movement, identifying benchmark tests and standards for new EEG technology, and examining how brain dynamics change during human locomotion with and without concurrent cognitive tasks. Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Kinesiology, Engineering, Neuroscience, Physics, or a related field. They must have strong technical skills including substantial MATLAB programming experience. Research experience with human locomotion, EEG, computational neuroscience, and/or signal processing is highly desirable. Experience with EEGLAB is helpful. Applicants for the Assistant Research Scientist should have prior postdoctoral experience, and would be appointed as research faculty at the University of Michigan if hired. The position is funded under the Army Research Laboratory Cognition and Neuroergonomics Collaborative Technology Alliance. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
