The Department of Human Physiology at the University of Oregon is seeking applications for a full time tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level to expand its multidisciplinary neural research program. We are seeking individuals with research interests that complement existing areas of excellence in posture and balance control, neuromuscular function and aging, autonomic control of the cardiovascular system, brain injury, proprioception, and the control of lower extremity prostheses. Candidates conducting research in the areas of the neural control of movement, neuro-rehabilitation or sensory-motor integration are encouraged to apply.
The ideal candidate for this position will have a strong background in systems, computational, or clinical neurophysiology, as evidenced by a strong publication and funding record. Special consideration will be given to candidates with a research program investigating central and/or peripheral nervous system disorders in clinical populations.
