Dr. Scott Glover is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to assist in a grant-funded project on the role of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex in motor imagery using TMS. This post is funded for 11 months and will provide an exciting opportunity to work on a new model of motor imagery while gaining valuable research experience within a vibrant department.
