Are you interested in graduate school or a postdoc in sensorimotor neuroscience?
Apply to the Sensorimotor SuperLab.

We have a number of open positions for Graduate Students interested in pursuing studies within one of the many research projects currently underway in the Diedrichsen / Gribble / Pruszynski labs. We are particularly interested in recruiting students who want to work collaboratively between labs.

We are also searching for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on a specific project studying the neural control of sequential movements. Experience with behavioral work in humans, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or computational modeling are desired.

For more details and for application instructions please see:
