Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Cognitive Neuroscience, Translational Neuroscience, and Neurorehabilitation

Two MRRI researchers working with a participant.


Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) offers a postdoctoral research training program funded by an NIH T32 fellowship in translational neurorehabilitation research. Fellowships are offered as a collaborative opportunity between researchers from MRRI and the University of Pennsylvania (Behavioral Neurology and Center for Functional Neuroimaging).

Currently, we have a position available for a member of an underrepresented minority. For more information on this opportunity, click here.

MRRI also sponsors one or more additional fellowships, open to applicants who do not meet the NIH citizenship/residency requirements.

Trainees from basic science and clinical disciplines participate in a core curriculum of didactic and workshop sessions and are immersed in ongoing research and hands-on training that offers opportunities for presentation, publication, and grant writing.

Program faculty collectively have expertise in Cognitive Neuroscience; Impairment assessment; Naturalistic assessment; Modulation of neuronal plasticity and learning mechanisms; and Theory-driven treatment trials, and are experienced in a range of cutting edge research tools, including structural and functional neuroimaging, eye- and motion-tracking, computational modeling, virtual reality, psychopharmacology, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and transcranial direct current stimulation.

Moreover, several individual faculty and collaborative groups have demonstrated expertise in advancing assessments and treatments toward clinical implementation. Thus, trainees have the ability to learn specific tools and perspectives that are applicable to both basic and applied cognitive neuroscience and neurorehabilitation research, while benefiting from mentored exposure to the process of translating scientific advances into clinically useful assessments and treatments.
