Post-doctoral positions are available in the Cortical Plasticity Laboratory at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, KS on multiple National Institutes of Health-funded projects investigating the role of spared brain regions on functional motor recovery after acquired brain injury. The successful candidate(s) will have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, bioengineering, physiology, or similar fields. This position offers an exciting opportunity to study the mechanisms of neuroplasticity and rehabilitation utilizing multichannel microelectrode array recording and stimulation techniques and can be renewable for up to 5 years. The candidate will be tasked with supporting existing funded experiments while developing independent studies consistent with laboratory goals broadly within the field of neurorehabilitation. The candidate will have the opportunity to develop ties within the KU Medical Center, Bioengineering and related departments at KU-Lawrence, and with our national and international collaborators. Under-represented groups are encouraged to apply. Please contact David Guggenmos (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Randolph Nudo (email@example.com) for more information about the lab and positions.
