Research Associate – Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s Disease


The Department of Biomechanics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), home to the Biomechanics Research Building (, invites applications for a postdoctoral research associate position for the lab of Carolin Curtze, PhD, Assistant Professor. Dr. Curtze’s research group focuses on the use of wearable sensors for clinical assessment and continuous monitoring of balance and gait dysfunction in people with Parkinson’s disease.

The research associate will work on a project funded by the Nebraska University Collaborative Initiative to study brain signal oscillations during gait in people with Parkinson's disease. The research associate will work collaboratively with Dr. Carolin Curtze, Department of Biomechanics, UNO, and Dr. Aviva Abosch, Department of Neurosurgery, University of Nebraska Medical Center. The research associate will perform data collections and data analyses involving local field potentials (LFPs) recorded from implanted deep brain stimulation electrodes and body-worn wireless inertial sensors (IMU). The research associate will also gain experience in student mentoring, managing a clinical research project, manuscript writing and grant submissions. The ideal candidate will be seeking to apply their technical skills to projects that can improve the lives and care of individuals with Parkinson’s disease.
