Description:

The Motion Analysis Laboratory provides a service to scientists and
students
in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, with the main focus of the
research
concentrating on human gait as well as sports injuries. Equipment
includes a
six-camera 240 Hz motion analysis system (HiRes ExpertVision), 4
force plates
(Kistler) and two eight-channel EMG system (Motion Lab). Further
information
on the University may be found at:

The Position:

Available immediately, applications are invited for a postdoctoral position
to study biomechanics and human movement with emphasis on the
upper extremity. The postdoctoral fellow will participate in developing
mathematical models of upper extremity and novel experimental approaches to
studying wheelchair propulsion, and mathematical models of postural balance
to studying balance. The laboratory participates in cooperative
research with the University's Division of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Department of Physical Therapy, and
the Department for Neuroscience.

Qualifications:

Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. with a background and publication
record in biomechanics, human movement, motor control, or bioengineering.
Laboratory experience with motion analysis, force platforms,
and electromyography as well as modeling experience is important.

To apply, applicants should send a cover letter with a statement of
interests, a curriculum vitae or resume, published papers or preprints,and
the names and contact information of three references to:
