A postdoctoral researcher position studying human locomotion is available in the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Ferris ( https://faculty.eng.ufl.edu/human-neuromechanics-laboratory ). This position is for an initial one-year appointment, and has the potential to be renewed for an additional year based on performance and funding availability.

The postdoctoral research will work on a currently funded NIH project (U01 AG061389) designed to identify neural correlates of mobility impairments in older adults. Research will involve using high-density electroencephalography (EEG) to track changes in electrocortical dynamics in older adults in a longitudinal study. Subjects will walk on a range of terrain surfaces to determine how they compensate for surfaces that challenge their stability.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, kinesiology, or a related biomedical science area. Applicants must have experience with manuscript preparation and submission. Experience with Matlab, EEGLAB, EEG, and motion analysis is desirable.

In addition to applying online to Careers at UF, Applicants should send a CV, a brief statement of interest, and contact information for two references to Dr. Ferris at dferris@bme.ufl.edu . Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Final candidate will be required to provide official transcript to the hiring department upon hire. A transcript will not be considered “official” if a designation of “Issued to Student” is visible. Degrees earned from an education institution outside of the United States are required to be evaluated by a professional credentialing service provider approved by National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES), which can be found at http://www.naces.org/ .
