The Exercise Neuroscience Research Laboratory and Multiple Sclerosis Research Center is accepting applications for a mentor-based postdoctoral fellowship, beginning August 2016. The current position is funded by an ongoing award from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and provides advanced training in physical activity and its promotion for people living with multiple sclerosis. The primary focus of the translational research in this laboratory is on physical activity behavior and its measurement, consequences, and determinants in persons with multiple sclerosis. The fellow will be involved in all aspects of the research process (i.e., project formation, design, and execution; data analysis; manuscript writing; and grant preparation and submission) and receive training in behavioral interventions and randomized control trials for multiple sclerosis.
This postdoctoral position is designed as a two-year experience that includes multiple speaker series, journal article discussions, laboratory presentations and discussions, and mentoring of skills necessary to conduct original research on physical activity in multiple sclerosis. Those with an earned doctoral degree in kinesiology, neuroscience, psychology, or a related area are encouraged to apply. The salary is competitive and there is a stipend for supporting the Fellow’s research.
