The Human Cortical Physiology and Neurorehabilitation Section of the NINDS is recruiting a
postdoctoral fellow. This position includes exposure to the extensive interactive opportunities
within the section and across the NIH community.
Projects presently under way in the HCPS involve the investigation of mechanisms of humanneuroplasticity using combinations of non-invasive brain stimulation, neuroimaging and behavior (i.e. - TMS/EEG) as well as interventional application of TMS, tDCS or tACS to facilitate neurorehabilitation after stroke or traumatic brain injury.
The NIH is an international, multicultural and stimulating scientific and social environment. The
campus is conveniently located in Bethesda, MD, which is a cosmopolitan area adjacent to
Successful applicants will have experience and advanced expertise in the investigation of motor
learning and functional recovery mechanisms using one or more of the following techniques:
transcranial magnetic (TMS) or/and electrical (tDCS, tACS) stimulation, magneto or
electroencephalography (MEG, EEG), fMRI, MRS, DTI, morphometry or/and other
neuroimaging techniques. The candidates should provide proof of scientific accomplishment in
at least one of these areas. A track record of publications (at least one first authored peer reviewed
publication) and interest in research on human neuroplasticity related to motor learning
in healthy subjects and/or in patients with brain lesions would be important.
Salary is commensurate with research experience and accomplishments, and a full package of
benefits is available. Additional information on the Human Cortical Physiology and Stroke
Neurorehabilitation Section are available at the following website:
