Neurorehabilitation and Biomechanics Research Section

Our Education & Training Opportunities

We are committed to developing the next generation of neurorehabilitation researchers by attracting highly qualified individuals with diverse talents and backgrounds. We typically recruit postdoctoral fellows for a training period ranging from two to three years as well as one-year post-baccalaureate and summer IRTAs (Intramural Research Training Awards). As a trainee, you would be typically assigned to one or more of our active research projects. We are highly committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in our Section and welcome all to apply. The Office of Intramural Training and Education (OITE) coordinates the application process and provides ongoing support and education throughout the trainees’ time at NIH.

In addition to trainees funded by our department, we also welcome trainees funded by other NIH programs or institutions outside of NIH who are interested in our research and have the relevant educational background and qualifications.

If you would like to learn more about our research or are interested in joining our team, please email the principal investigators, Dr. Diane Damiano at or Dr. Tom Bulea at
