Description:

A Postdoctoral Research Associate I position is available in the lab of 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 tongue in breathing and speech production. The research involves the study of skilled tongue motion as a human motor output entailing precise neural control to achieve a desired respiratory output/target. Using tungsten microelectrodes and whole muscle fine wire electromyography, the candidate will identify and characterize single motor unit and whole muscle EMG activities as a function of volitional (motor cortex) and respiratory (CPG) driven behaviors. The candidate will also be responsible for developing appropriate visual tracking stimuli and for conducting associated analysis. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Minimal Qualifications:
- Doctoral degree in neuroscience, physiology, linguistics, speech and hearing sciences, 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 physiology and/or electrophysiology
- Experience in statistical analyses
- Ability to work independently, be highly motivated, and conduct the project with minimal supervision
- Prepared to work 8-5 work day

Application Deadline: (Open until filled)
