Postdoc & Early Career

The objective of the CAESOR program is to increase the number of rigorously trained, extramurally competitive, and scientifically productive engineering researchers in the field of rehabilitation science and engineering.

Eligibility: Individuals from basic engineering disciplines interested in gaining research training/experience in an area relevant to rehabilitation are eligible to apply for support. Trainees are expected to work with a member of one of the training program faculty (See attached list). Trainees should be prepared to make a two-year commitment to research training and fulfill each of the requirements of the traineeship. There is no limitation on U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.

Criteria: The criteria used in selection are: (a) having a Ph.D. or equivalent professional degree in basic engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical, computer, industrial, and biomedical engineering at the time of application to the program; (b) not being or having been a Principal Investigator on any research grant award in rehabilitation. (c) evidence of creativity and motivation as exhibited by information gathered in the personal interview, letters of recommendation, research experience, and written statements prepared by the applicant; (d) the suitability of the interests of the applicant to the training environment; and (e) the long-term objectives of the applicant.

Amount and Duration of Awards: Trainees will receive a stipend starting at $40,000/year including health insurance, a $500 travel allowance, a $2,000 research allowance, and reimbursement of up to $1,500 for tuition expenses. Awards are made for one year but are renewable for a second year as long as (a) funds are available, and (b) good progress has been made during the first year as evident
