Position for a postdoctoral fellowship in neurorehabilitation – Université de Montréal

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to work in the areas of electrophysiology and neurorehabilitation with healthy participants and individuals who sustained a lesion to the spinal cord (spinal cord injury) or brain (stroke).

Current projects examine mechanisms of locomotion, balance control and upper limb motor control. Using electrophysiological (TMS, EEG, electrical stimulation) and biomechanical techniques (3D motion captures, force plates, EMG), we aim at assessing different supraspinal and spinal pathways after an injury or following therapeutic intervention.

The NeuromobilityLab is part of the CRIR research center and is located in the Cote-des-Neiges neighborhood at the Institut Universitaire sur la réadaptation en déficience physique de Montréal – Site Gingras (6300 Darlington, Montreal). For more information about past and ongoing projects, please visit our website: www.neuromobilitylab.com.

Candidates should have graduate training in Neuroscience, Neurorehabilitation, Kinesiology or any related discipline. The applicant should be fluent in English and French, demonstrate excellent analysis and writing skills in English, have an academic record of scientific excellence, and have a strong interest in an interdisciplinary approach to human motor control. Experience in statistics and programming is an important asset (e.g. Matlab).

The position is funded for one year and could be renewed. Applicants should submit a CV, including a list of publications, the contact of one person of reference, and a letter of motivation briefly indicating research interest and experience to dorothy.barthelemy@umontreal.ca. The position is open immediately and recruitment will continue until the position is filled.
