Join the Lab

Prospective Graduate Students

Please contact Dr. Michael Freedberg for inquiries regarding Post-Doctoral, Doctoral, or Master’s studies. Students interested in working in the FALCON lab should apply to the Rehabilitation and Movement Sciences program. Early applicants will be considered for scholarships and teaching assistant positions.

Undergraduate Fieldwork Students

Opportunities for course credit to work in one of the research laboratories are offered through most departments. Courses in Kinesiology and Health Education include KIN 127, 227, and 327. Please contact Dr. Michael Freedberg prior to enrolling for project assignment.

Prospective Postdoctoral Fellows and Visiting Researchers 

The lab currently has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to study closed-loop neuromodulation of brain networks underlying human memory and motor control. The successful candidate will combine transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), electroencephalography (EEG), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to interrogate human brain networks and will work with both the SMNP lab (directed by Dr. Sara Hussain) and the FALCON lab. This position provides a unique opportunity to combine multiple neuroimaging techniques with cutting-edge closed-loop brain stimulation. Experience with real-time signal processing applications/brain-computer interfaces is highly desirable. 

Qualifications include:

  1. a PhD in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, physiology, psychology, or a related discipline
  2. Experience with at least one of the following techniques: TMS, EEG/MEG, fMRI
  3. 3-5 years of human subjects research experience 
  4. Programming experience (Matlab, Python, R, bash, cshell, etc.)
