Post-doctoral positions at the Center for Adaptive Neural Systems,
Arizona State University
Tempe, Arizona

Two post-doctoral positions are currently available at The Center for Adaptive Neural Systems at Arizona State University. These positions are supported by 2 on-going, NIH-funded projects that involve the application of advanced neurotechnology and extensive neuromotor assessment in human subjects with disabilities. The first project will implement and assess neural-enabled upper extremity prostheses. The human studies aspect of this work will be conducted with Drs. James Abbas, Ken Horch, Marco Santello and Ranu Jung. The second project will implement and assess a locomotor retraining paradigm for people with incomplete spinal cord injury that uses adaptive electrical stimulation. This work will be conducted with Dr. James Abbas, Ranu Jung and Richard Herman.
The Center for Adaptive Neural Systems ( is focused on developing and applying new technology to address the complex problems presented by neurological disability. The scope of the Center’s activities includes the design and development of new technology, the evaluation of technology in pre-clinical trials, and the transfer of these technologies to biomedical industry and clinical practice. Our multi-disciplinary research group includes biomedical engineers, kinesiologists, neuroscientists, mathematicians and clinicians.
These positions will provide experience and training in research design, experimental techniques, and advanced analysis procedures. As with many projects based at the Center, the two advertised positions involve extensive collaboration with our clinical partners. The positions as Post-doctoral Research Associate require a PhD in Bioengineering, Kinesiology, Neuroscience or a related field. Experience in rehabilitation engineering, neuromotor control, electrical stimulation technology, biomechanical analysis, and/or control systems design would be beneficial.
Applicants are requested to submit letter of application, curriculum vitae, and contact information (name, address, phone number and email address) for three references to:
