Open Positions

We are looking for motivated individuals to fill a full-time lab technician position and have an open position for a graduate student. These individuals will work as part of a team exploring mechanisms of plasticity and an exciting area of respiratory neural control: afferent mediated changes in respiratory motor output. More details on these positions can be found here:  


We have assembled an outstanding group of scientists who are devoted to  advancing our knowledge of respiratory neural control. We are always looking for motivated interested in respiratory research individuals to join our team, contact us below.


 The fundamental hypothesis guiding our work is that respiratory afferents induce spinal plasticity and facilitate remodeling within the respiratory neural network. Our laboratory uses a multi-disciplinary approach including behavioral studies, neurophysiological preparations, and molecular techniques to investigate the functional significance and therapeutic potential of respiratory afferent activation, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel rehabilitative strategies to improve cardiorespiratory control following cervical spinal cord injury 



If you are interested in our techniques or our studies focused on respiratory research, learn more by reading our publications. 




Marquette University is located in historic downtown Milwaukee, WI
