The Sayenko Lab is actively seeking individuals interested in human movement research and rehabilitation. Current projects are multidisciplinary and include the investigation of the effects and mechanisms of neuromodulation to promote functional recovery and mobility after neurological injuries and disorders, such as spinal cord injury or stroke.

The lab is currently searching for a postdoctoral fellow or research assistant. This person would immediately be involved in on-going projects in the lab. These include fMRI of the brain (in the presence of spinal stimulation) and mechanistic neurophysiology studies, focused on ascending-descending communication between the cervical and lumbar spinal cord. In addition, the person would work with lower limb robotics exoskeleton studies and lead a project involving upper limb robotics. A degree in biomedical engineering, neuroscience, kinesiology, or a related field is ideal. Candidate must be able to work independently and with a team. Candidate must be willing to learn how to operate various software. Familiarity with EMG, motion capture/analysis, electrical or electromagnetic neurostimulation, MATLAB, and statistical methodology is preferred.

Please send Curriculum Vitae, statement of research interests and future objectives, and a list of three references to Dimitry Sayenko, PhD, at
