Postdoctoral Position with George Wittenberg, M.D., Ph.D.

Postdoctoral position is available with start date around October 1, 2021

A position will be available in the Pittsburgh-based laboratory of George Wittenberg, MD, PhD.

The project is on:

  1. the normal role of the premotor cortices on motor function, and
  2. the altered role in people with a specific type of stroke and to develop a method of synchronized practice and brain stimulation that can enhance motor function.

Techniques used include transcranial magnetic stimulation, exoskeleton robotics, and MRI. The laboratory is part of the Human Engineering Research Laboratory and Rehab Neural Engineering Labs, with affiliations at the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, and Carnegie Mellon University. The environment is excellent for training in general, and particularly in motor rehabilitation after neurological injury.

This is not a formal announcement of a position being available. The position would be offered through the Department of Veterans affairs.
