Research Position in Movement Science and Rehabilitation

Posted: April, 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 neurologic populations. An interest in neuroplasticity as affected by practice and/or as modulated by pharmacologic agents or electrical stimulation is desirable. Early career investigators with postdoctoral research training, as well as mid-career scientists, are welcome to apply.

This full-time research 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. Myrna Schwartz This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and Ze Wang ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

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.
