A Postdoctoral 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 speech production. The
research involves the study of skilled tongue motion as a human motor output
entailing precise neural control to achieve a desired acoustic 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 (brainstem) driven behaviors.
The candidate will also be responsible for developing appropriate speech and
quasi-speech stimuli and for conducting acoustic measures and associated
analysis. The candidate will possess a doctoral degree in linguistics, speech
and hearing sciences, biomedical or engineering related field and demonstrate
excellence in written and spoken English (the latter skills will be assessed
A background in digital signal processing and computational skills is highly
desirable. Understanding of motor systems physiology and/or electrophysiology,
and experience with human subjects would be advantageous. The candidate should
be able to work independently, be highly motivated, and conduct the project
with minimal supervision and with attention to detail.
The candidate is expected to: 1) participate in planning, designing, and
conducting research under the direction of the PI; 2) analyze research data
and provide interpretations; 3) contribute to the development of research
documentation for publication.
Salary is commensurate with experience and qualification.
The UofA is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Interested
individuals should send a current CV by email and the names and contact
information (including email) of three references to Dr. E. Fiona Bailey to
