Postdoctoral Fellowship in Noninvasive Brain Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation and Aphasia

University of Pennsylvania
Philadephia, Pennsylvania, USA

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Noninvasive Brain Stimulation in Neurorehabilitation and Aphasia
Laboratory for Cognition and Neural Stimulation, University of Pennsylvania

A postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Laboratory for Cognition and Neural Stimulation (LCNS) under the direction of Roy Hamilton, MD, MS, a behavioral neurologist at the University of Pennsylvania. The central thrust of work in the LCNS is to use electrical and magnetic noninvasive brain stimulation to explore the characteristics and limits of functional plasticity in the intact and injured adult human brain. The principle NIH-grant funded project related to the postdoctoral position involves behavioral, neuropsychological, and neurostimulation (rTMS) approaches in patients with aphasia. Additional available projects in the LCNS involve other forms of neurostimulation, including tDCS and HD-tDCS, as well as neuroimaging (fMRI, fNIRS) approaches. The ideal candidate must have experience in one or more of the following areas: behavioral studies in brain-injured patient populations, studies involving measures of human neurophysiology (EEG, ERP), functional or anatomical imaging techniques, advanced statistics, or noninvasive brain stimulation techniques. A track record of prior academic authorship is strongly encouraged. Moreover, an ideal candidate must be able to work independently and proactively propose and test new ideas that are relevant to his or her projects. Good oral and written communication skills are expected. The fellow will train with Dr. Hamilton as a primary mentor, but will also be expected to interact and collaborate with a network of outstanding peers and secondary mentors in the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) and the Department of Neurology at Penn. Eligible candidates must hold a PhD or comparable degree. While applicants with a wide range of training backgrounds will be considered, a doctoral degree in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or neurorehabilitation will be considered a strong asset to the position. The position is a full-time appointment initially for 12 months, with the possibility of renewing for additional years, contingent upon funding. Pay will follow the NIH payscale. The anticipated start date would be 1/1/15, but there is room for negotiation. Women and under-represented groups are encouraged to apply.

 For inquiries please contact Roy Hamilton, MD, MS at roy.hamilton@uphs.upenn.edu, (215) 779-1603.
