Jobs and Opportunities

Research Position in Movement Science and Rehabilitation

Posted: October, 2014

Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute, internationally known for its research in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation, seeks a scientist to join its expanding program in movement science and motor disability. Applicants should have a background in movement science and interest in translational research, particularly as applied to aspects of mobility in neurologic populations. Early career investigators with postdoctoral research training, as well as mid-career scientists, are welcome to apply.

The institute scientist position at MRRI is a full-time independent research position that is comparable to a university faculty position. The primary expectation is that applicants would develop and direct an independent program of research in the mobility domain of rehabilitation. The research program may fall anywhere along the translational continuum from understanding basic mechanisms of motor performance and recovery to theory-based treatment advancement in rehabilitation. This position offers numerous opportunities for collaboration with other MRRI investigators and skilled MossRehab clinicians, and with colleagues in cognitive neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania, including those involved in structural and functional neuroimaging, TMS, and tDCS. Office and laboratory space are available in a newly renovated research building, with ready access to relevant patient populations and gait and motion laboratory facilities.

Albert Einstein Healthcare Network is proud to offer our employees unparalleled career opportunities including competitive compensation, attractive benefits plan including medical/dental/vision coverage, generous vacation time, and tuition reimbursement. EOE

Neuroimaging Postdoctoral Position, Philadelphia PA

The Center for Functional Neuroimaging at University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute of Einstein Healthcare Network, is now recruiting a postdoctoral fellow in neuroimaging data analysis beginning Spring/Summer 2014. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary team conducting NIH-supported research on neural correlates of clinical disorders of language and cognition. Based primarily at U. Penn, the Fellow will bear responsibility for developing and implementing multivariate MRI data analysis methods for lesion and multi-modal neuroimaging data, under joint supervision of Dr. Ze Wang (neuroimaging analysis methods) and Dr. Myrna Schwartz (cognition-brain relationships).

Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering, or in one of the following fields: computer science, electrical engineering, or mathematics. Programming background using Matlab or C++ will be necessary. Prior experience in neuroimaging research as evidenced by publications and training will be preferred.

The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send a statement of research interest and professional goals, a CV, (p)reprints, and a list of 3 references to: Drs.

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. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all of the available positions are filled.

Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
