Please post the following position. If you have any questions, please
contact me at the number below or via email. Thank you.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study human movement
and balance with emphasis on the biomechanics of balance and mobility in the
elderly. The postdoctoral fellow will develop mathematical models of
postural control along with innovative approaches for studying dynamic
stability of patients with balance impairments, such as vestibular
dysfunction, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy. The postdoctoral
fellow will collaborate in these investigations with the Vestibular/Balance
Laboratory and the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

Traineeships are available for two (under exceptional circumstances three)
year periods. Physicians who have recently completed residency training in
rehabilitation-related fields (e.g., Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
Neurology, Orthopedics and Rheumatology) and Ph.D.s in specialties relevant
to balance and rehabilitation (e.g., engineering, motor control,
computational neuroscience, and biomechanics) are eligible for
consideration. Experience with motion analysis systems, force platforms, and
electromyography would be beneficial. Successful candidates will be
selected on the basis of academic record, research experience, career goals,
letters of recommendation and motivation for a career in academic
rehabilitation. Women and under-represented minorities are encouraged to
