The Stepp Lab for Sensorimotor Rehabilitation Engineering at Boston University has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate in the area of sensory aspects of vocal motor control.
The primary duties of the postdoctoral associate will be the preparation and execution of experimental paradigms; preparation of scientific publications and presentations for dissemination of research results in scholarly venues; and assisting the PI with the preparation of scientific grant proposals for funding. The candidate will be expected to contribute to ongoing research projects as well as to collaborate with the PI on new projects of mutual interest.
A candidate for the postdoctoral research associate position should hold a PhD degree in speech, language, and hearing sciences, biomedical/electrical engineering, neuroscience, or rehabilitation science. Candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas are strongly preferred: speech acoustics, voice disorders, signal processing, real-time modification of auditory feedback, somatosensory discrimination. This position requires at least basic programming skills, and the candidate is expected to have experience working in Matlab and/or LabView. Strong communication skills are essential: the candidate must have excellent command of spoken and written English. Also the candidate should have a demonstrated ability to execute independent research that has resulted in high quality published articles.
