Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Translational Neuroscience and Neurorehabilitation
Three year NIH-funded fellowships are available at the Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), for research training in cognitive and motor neuroscience and neurorehabilitation. This program is designed specifically to prepare young investigators to adapt emerging theoretical advances to the development of rehabilitation treatments. To that end, we invite applications from (1) individuals with relevant basic science training who wish to learn to apply basic science principles to the study and treatment of neurological deficits and (2) individuals with relevant clinical training who wish to learn cutting-edge neuroscience and neurorehabilitation research methods. Fellows will train with a primary mentor at either MRRI or Penn and will interact with peers and mentors with diverse clinical and experimental backgrounds.
Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Postdoctoral Research Position with Dr. Myrna Schwartz
A multi-year postdoctoral fellowship is available in the laboratory of Dr. Myrna F. Schwartz at Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (mrri.org) starting Fall 2013. The position is funded by Dr. Schwartz’s long-running NIH research grant on acquired disorders of language (aphasia), which supports multidisciplinary, multi-site collaborations with computational psycholinguist, Gary S. Dell, and behavioral neurologist, H. Branch Coslett. We are currently exploring how normal and aphasic word production is influenced by cognitive learning, with the aim of enhancing neural plasticity and treatment outcomes. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to contribute to ongoing projects and develop new lines of research related to this general theme. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in cognitive psychology, cognitive neuroscience, or speech-language pathology, a track record in research, and one or more first-authored, peer-reviewed publications. Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in EEG/ERP research.

Research Assistant - Motor Learning Laboratory
The Motor Learning Laboratory of Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) has an opening for a BS/BA-level research assistant, beginning spring or summer 2013. Under the direction of Dr. Erin Vasudevan, the laboratory conducts research on how people with and without neurological damage learn new walking patterns, with the goal of developing effective, evidence-based rehabilitation treatments. Our RAs gain valuable experience working closely with individuals with stroke, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy, and are trained to conduct and analyze experiments with human subjects.
Applicants should have a strong academic background in neuroscience, biomechanics, kinesiology, or psychology, with coursework in statistics and research methods. Preference will be given to applicants with prior research experience, particularly in motor control or learning. MRRI and MossRehab are part of the Einstein Healthcare Network. The position offers competitive salary and benefits (medical, dental, vision, tuition reimbursement). Send cover letter, C.V. and contact information for three references to
