Postdoctoral position in neural control of movement at the University of Florida
Postdoctoral position in neural control of movement

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Rachael Seidler within the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology at the University of Florida to work on a collaborative project Mind in Motion, which will investigate the neural control of mobility in older adults. Other members of the collaborative at UF include Dave Clark, Todd Manini, Dan Ferris and Chris Hass. As one of the world's leading research institutions, the University of Florida provides an exceptionally supportive environment for research. University support includes integrated and state of the art computer technology, exceptional students and staff, and a network of world-renowned scientists. The Neuromotor Behavior Laboratory (directed by Dr. Seidler) is an interdisciplinary, productive, and dynamic group of students and staff researching the neurocognitive control of movement.

The post-doctoral researcher will study neural correlates of walking and predictors of mobility decline in young and older adults. The candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with a research team to collect and analyze data, prepare manuscripts for publication, and participate at national and international level meetings.

Necessary Qualifications: Ph.D. in psychology, neuroscience, kinesiology or related field and experience with MRI techniques including structural MRI, DTI, and / or functional MRI. The candidate must possess excellent verbal and written communication skills, be strongly motivated, and work well in a team setting. Experience with computer programming is a plus (MATLAB, LabView, and / or E-Prime). The position is initially available for one year and may be renewable.
