Three year NIH-funded fellowships are available at the Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI), in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), for research training in cognitive and motor neuroscience and neurorehabilitation. This program is designed to prepare young investigators to adapt emerging theoretical advances to the development of rehabilitation treatments. Available mentors conduct patient-oriented research using approaches that utilize behavioral, computational, imaging, electrophysiologic, and electrical and pharmacologic neuromodulation methods. We welcome applications from individuals with a doctorate in psychology, cognitive science, communication science, kinesiology, movement science, or human neuroscience, who wish to learn to apply basic science principles to the study and treatment of behavioral and brain deficits in adult neurological patients. Applicants must have a track record in research and an interest in developing an independent research career. More details, including a list of available mentors, are available at: http://mrri.org/jobs-and-opportunities/t32.
Applications should be submitted to Kevin Whelihan, Research Administrator, (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and must include:
- a current CV
- a cover letter describing research interests and career goals. Given the translational focus of the training program, applicants should indicate a preferred primary mentor and, if possible, one or more secondary mentors who appear to offer the best fit in balancing basic and applied aspects of the candidate’s interests.
- 2-3 letters of reference
