MRRI Institute Investigator (all levels): Language and Cognition in Neuropsychological Populations

August 2015

Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) seeks an Institute Investigator to join our historic program in language and cognition and help build the next generation of translational neuroscience/neurorehab research.

The successful applicant is expected to conduct an independent program of research and to participate in research collaborations within and outside MRRI. The ideal candidate is a cognitive, clinical, or neuroscientist or speech-language pathologist who studies language or related cognitive disorders, and who may also conduct research in translating basic science findings to improve clinical practice. Preference will be given to candidates who complement the faculty’s interests in areas like language processing, language learning, semantics, action planning, cognitive control, neuromodulation, neuroplasticity, and/or lesion-symptom mapping (for details, consult our website: www.mrri.org). 

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a relevant area.  Evidence of research productivity and prior grant funding are required, as salaries and labs at MRRI are partially grant supported.  Qualified candidates at all levels are welcome to apply.  We offer a competitive start-up package, and ongoing salary support is available.

MRRI is known internationally for its research in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation, including a long tradition of ground-breaking research in aphasia.  Our unique resources include a large research registry of stroke and TBI research volunteers, and the long-running MossRehab Aphasia Center, a venue for life participation activities, training, and research. MRRI is renowned for its supportive, collegial environment, peer mentoring, and collaborative ties with Philadelphia’s outstanding colleges and universities. In particular, we have long-standing collaborations with the neurology and neuroimaging faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, with grant supported projects in structural and functional neuroimaging, TMS, and tDCS.

Einstein Healthcare Network is proud to offer our employees outstanding career opportunities including competitive compensation, attractive benefits plan including medical/dental/vision coverage, generous vacation time, and tuition reimbursement.


Interested candidates may submit a cover letter describing current research programs and proposed future directions in the MRRI environment, along with CV to:
Kevin Whelihan, Research Administrator;
MRRI, MossRehab @ Elkins Park
50 Township Line Road
Elkins Park, PA 19027
