6-37 (2023-04-09) Postdoc @ University of Washington, USA

University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA

Laboratory for Speech Physiology and Motor Control 


Post-doctoral position in speech sensorimotor learning in typical adults,

DBS patients, and adults who stutter



The Laboratory for Speech Physiology and Motor Control (PI Ludo Max, Ph.D.) at the University of Washington (Seattle) is seeking to fill a post-doctoral position in the areas of sensorimotor integration and sensorimotor learning for speech production. The position will involve experimental work on sensorimotor adaptation, sensory prediction, and error evaluation in typical adults, Parkinson’s and essential tremor patients with deep brain stimulation implants (DBS), and adults 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.

The successful candidate will use speech sensorimotor adaptation paradigms (with digital signal processing perturbations applied to the real-time auditory feedback or mechanical loads applied to the jaw by a robotic device) to investigate various aspects of motor learning and control. Data collection will involve acoustic, kinematic, and neural data to investigate auditory-motor interactions during speech movement planning and execution.


The appointment is initially for one year, with renewal possible contingent upon satisfactory performance and productivity. We are looking for a candidate available to start in the summer of 2023, and applicants should have completed all requirements for their Ph.D. degree by that time. Review of applications will begin immediately. Candidates with a Ph.D. degree in neuroscience, cognitive/behavioral neuroscience, motor control/kinesiology, biomedical engineering, communication disorders/speech science, and related fields, are encouraged to apply.

For more information, please contact lab director Ludo Max, Ph.D. ( Applications can be submitted to the same e-mail address. Interested candidates should submit (a) a cover letter describing their research experiences, 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.
