Postdoctoral fellow (sensorimotor interactions in typical speech and stuttering)
University of Washington Sensory-motor interactions in typical speech and stuttering
The Laboratory for Speech Physiology and Motor Control (PI Ludo Max, Ph.D.) at the University of
Washington (Seattle) announces an open post-doctoral position in the area of sensorimotor interactions in the control of speech movements by typical children and adults as well as individuals who stutter.
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 Neuroscience, the Department of
Bioengineering, and the Department of Linguistics. See http://faculty.washington.edu/ludomax/lab/ for
The successful candidate will use electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate predictive aspects of speech movement planning and motor-to-sensory priming prior to speech initiation. Additional opportunities are available to conduct studies of sensorimotor learning in the same populations of participants.
The position is initially for one year (a second-year extension is possible contingent upon satisfactory
performance and productivity) with a preferred starting date in the spring of 2020. Applicants should have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. degree by the start of the appointment. Review of
applications will begin immediately.
We seek a candidate with excellent computer programming skills (in particular MATLAB and R).
For more information, please contact lab director Ludo Max, Ph.D. (LudoMax@uw.edu). Applications
can be submitted to the same e-mail address, and should include (a) a cover letter describing prior
research experience, 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.

University of Delaware Job Summary The Communication Sciences and Disorders Program at the University of Delaware is seeking candidate for a postdoctoral researcher position in a laboratory focused on the neurobiology of stuttering and other speech-language disorders (PI: Dr. Ho Ming Chow). This position is 100% research with an ample opportunity to develop teaching skill. The successful candidate will be trained to carry out advanced neuroimaging analyses on existing functional and structural data and develop new experiments using various neuroimaging and neuromodulation techniques (fMRI, DTI, simultaneous EEG-fMRI, tACS, fNIRS). Salary is competitive and is set by the University rules depending on level of training. Initial appointment is for one year with possible renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance and available funding. The position has a starting date of January 1, 2020. Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2019. The search will remain open until the position is filled.
Responsibilities The successful candidate will work closely with the PI and his collaborators to perform the following duties: 1) collect and analyze human and animal neuroimaging (fMRI, DTI, T1 and EEG), 2) develop new techniques and pipelines for multimodal neuroimaging data, 3) assist in experimental design and implementation, 4) perform literature searches and report research findings, and 5) assist with training of undergraduate and graduate research assistants.
Required Qualifications 1) Candidates must have a PhD in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, engineering, computer science, communication sciences and disorders, or a related field. 2) a track record of publishing empirical research findings in peer-reviewed journals. 3) Strong written and verbal communication skills. 4) Some experience in programming and statistics.
For more information about the position, please contact Dr. Ho Ming Chow by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
University of Wisconsin-Madison The Speech Motor Neuroscience Group at the University of Wisconsin–Madison invites applications for two postdoctoral research positions in the field of speech motor control and learning / speech motor neuroscience. The Speech Motor Neuroscience group consists of two research labs, the Brain Language and Acoustic Behavior (BLAB) lab (directed by Carrie Niziolek) and the Speech Motor Action + Control lab (directed by Ben Parrell). Both labs are funded through grants from the NIH. One position is NIH-funded (T32) and one is funded through an internal grant from UW-Madison. Both postdoctoral scholars will additionally have opportunities to interact with vibrant research communities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, including the Waisman Center (which houses both labs) and the Neuroscience Training Program.
One position will investigate techniques to modulate the effectiveness of sensorimotor learning in speech. The other position will investigate neural changes associated with speech production training in both typical individuals and persons with aphasia. The initial appointment for both positions will be for one year, with potential extensions for additional years.
A PhD or equivalent in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, linguistics, communication sciences and disorders, or a closely related field is required. Salary and benefits are based on NIH guidelines, commensurate with experience and qualifications. The start date for Position 1 is flexible, and the position is open until filled. The start date for Position 2 must be on or earlier than June 30, 2020.
Interested candidates should email the Speech Motor Neuroscience Group (email@example.com) with “Postdoc Job (YOUR FULL NAME)” in the subject line to submit (1) a current CV, (2) a one-page cover letter describing qualifications, interests, and career goals, and (3) a list of the names and contact information for three references.
