A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the lab of E.
Fiona Bailey Ph.D., within the Physiology Department at the University of
Arizona, Tucson, AZ. The successful candidate will work on NIDCD-NIH
funded research projects that investigate the neuromuscular control of
human tongue in speech production. The research involves the study of
skilled tongue motion as a human motor output entailing precise neural
control to achieve a desired acoustic output/target. Using tungsten
microelectrodes the candidate will identify and characterize single motor
unit and whole muscle EMG activities as a function of volitional (motor
cortex) driven behaviors. The candidate will be responsible for
developing appropriate speech and quasi-speech stimuli and for
conducting acoustic measures and associated analysis. Salary is
commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Minimum Qualifications:
- Doctoral degree in linguistics, neuroscience, biomedical or
engineering related field
- Demonstrated excellence in written and spoken English

Preferred Qualifications:
- Background in digital signal processing and computational skills
- Understanding of motor systems neurophysiology and/or
- Experience with human subjects
- Ability to work independently, be highly motivated, and conduct the
project with minimal supervision
- Ability to attend to detail
