Research Position, Cleveland,Ohio
The Cleveland Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Center, a Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation Research and Development National Center of Excellence, is seeking a new investigator to develop independent research programs in neural prostheses to restore upper extremity function following stroke. Present investigations within the center focus on neural prostheses for restoration of both upper and lower extremity function, swallowing, bladder function, and respiratory function. The center has a wide range of interdisciplinary studies ranging from basic discovery and the development of next generation technology, to system design, clinical implementation and assessment. There are a growing number of physicians, engineers, and scientists within the FES Center and the Cleveland area that are actively investigating rehabilitation devices and therapies. We are looking to add another dynamic young investigator to the upper extremity stroke program to solidify and expand its presence within Cleveland.
Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering or other closely related discipline at time of hire and show a significant potential for developing independent funding. Post-doctoral experience is desirable, but not required. The successful applicant will work with investigators of the FES Center to develop neuroprosthetic systems for implementation in upper extremity stroke. The position provides full salary support for up to two years. The investigator will be expected to generate peer review publications and applications for research funding within 12 months. Only US citizens are eligible. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
