The Departments of Psychology and Biological Science in the McMicken College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Cincinnati are jointly seeking applications for an interdisciplinary, tenure-track Assistant Professor position.  We seek a candidate whose research program complements our existing strengths in the dynamics of sensorimotor control, cognitive systems, and coordination of multiple human and/or artificial agents. A successful candidate will have expertise in complex dynamical systems, such as dynamical or computational modeling, network theory, nonlinear time series and signal processing methods, or advanced computational methods for large, complex data sets. We seek candidates who apply those or related methods to research in topical areas such as dynamical neuroscience, neuromechanics, cyber-human systems, robotics and co-robotics, integrated neural prosthetics, cyber-enhancement of sensorimotor or cognitive performance, brain-machine interfaces, or neurologically embedded biosensors. 

We are interested in candidates whose training or publication record evidences the ability to bridge disciplinary boundaries and collaborate with faculty affiliated with the UC CAP Center (from home departments including Psychology, Electrical Engineering & Computing Systems, Mechanical Engineering, Philosophy, and Biological Sciences). Current CAP Center faculty expertise and interests include cognitive and perceptual-motor development, embodied cognition, complex systems, dynamical and computational modeling, movement coordination, human and animal sensory processes including visual and haptic perception, social perception-action-cognition, dynamical neuroscience, biomorphic design, and cyber-human systems. A Ph.D. in a substantive area that aligns with the research topics described above is a minimum requirement for the position. A successful candidate’s training or professional experience must also indicate a strong potential or demonstrated ability to compete successfully for external funding. The candidate will be expected to conduct research, teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and make service contributions to the mission of the CAP Center and department or departments of appointment. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community and we hope to attract applicants who have experience in promoting the success of students from diverse backgrounds.

Post-doc position in sensorimotor learning and control of speech production

Post-doc position in sensorimotor learning and control of speech production

The Laboratory for Speech Physiology and Motor Control (PI Ludo Max, Ph.D.) at the University of Washington (Seattle) anticipates an NIH-funded opening for a postdoctoral position in the area of speech sensorimotor learning. The lab is located in the University of Washington’s Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences and has additional affiliations with the Graduate Program in Neurocience and the Department of Bioengineering. See for more information.

The successful candidate will use primarily speech sensorimotor adaptationsensorimotor learning and control in adults and children who stutter.

The position is for two years (with second-year fundingdisorders/speech science, and related fields, are encouraged to apply.

Salary will be determined using NIH standards based oncomputer programming experience (the lab relies heavily on MATLAB, R, Psyscope/Psychtoolbox).

For more information, please contact Ludo Max, Ph.D. (e-mail: Applications can be submitted to the same e-mail address. Interested candidates should submit (a) a cover letter describing their research experiences, interests, and goals, (b) a curriculum vitae, (c) the names and contact information of three individuals who can serve as references, and (d) reprints of relevant journal publications.

11th Annual Motor Control Summer School – Bled, Slovenia

We invite bright, open-minded graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and young professionals to apply for admission to the Motor Control Summer School # XI (MCSS-XI). MCSS-XI will be a five-day event, June 26-30, 2014. It will include an arrival day (June 26), three days of sessions (June 27-29), and a departure day (June 30). For the first time, MCSS will take place in Slovenia! A preliminary agreement has been reached with the “Elovitsa” Hotel/Conference Center in the town of Bled, a beautiful Alpine town alongside a glacier lake, about 20 km from the Ljubljana Airport.

The following speakers expressed their interest in joining MCSS-XI:

Antonio Bicchi, Anatol Feldman, Slobodan Jaric, Mark Latash, Mindy Levin, John Rothwell,Gregor Schöner.

If you would like to participate in MCSS-X:

Please e-mail a letter of interest to Mark Latash ( with a single-file PDF attachment containing a statement of personal goals and a c.v. with the list of publications and presentations.Earlier applications will get preference for admission.
