A post-doctoral fellow position is available to work in conjunction with the Motion Analysis Laboratory and the Human Brain Physiology and Stimulation Laboratory of Johns Hopkins University directed by Dr. Amy Bastian and Dr. Pablo Celnik. These laboratories are devoted to the study of motor control from a behavioral and neurophysiological perspective. The overall aim is to understand motor learning mechanisms in healthy individuals as well as stroke patients or patients with cerebellar injury. These laboratories use behavioral, motion analysis and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (TMS and tDCS).

The expertise of Drs. Bastian and Celnik on studies of motor control, together with the collaborative work of other investigators in Johns Hopkins University, creates a unique opportunity to gain experience on the behavioral and physiological mechanisms underlying motor learning and on translation motor recovery research.  For more details about the labs please visit our websites at: http://celniklab.johnshopkins.edu or http://www.kennedykrieger.org/research-training/centers-labs-cores/motion-analysis-laboratory

Applicants will have been awarded a PhD within the past 5 years, and will have publications relating to human motor control and or neurophysiology in peer reviewed journals.

The position is to start immediately. The appointment would be for 2 years with a possibility of extending to 3. The salary will be determined by experience following NIH standards.
