Research Position in Upper Extremity Rehabilitation Post Stroke
Available Position: Postdoctoral Scholar
Desired Qualification:

  • Degree in Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, Kinesiology or Movement Science Applicants should be proficient with 3D motion capture and / or EMG data collection and processing.
