Postdoctoral Training in Biological Physics and Biomedical Engineering: Boston University and Harvard Medical School

Program Description:
The Integrated Rehabilitation Engineering Research Training Program (IREP) is a newly established training program involving Boston University, Harvard Medical School, Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for Aged, and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. IREP, which is funded by the National Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), is a clinically-oriented, scientifically-grounded, educational program for training postdoctoral fellows in rehabilitation engineering. The objective of the program is to produce biomedical scientists who are capable of communicating and interacting with physician investigators in a significant and meaningful manner, and defining and solving clinically-relevant problems in rehabilitation engineering. The overall goal is to train a new cadre of biomedical scientists with the knowledge and skills to develop innovative rehabilitation technologies that directly benefit individuals with physical disabilities. Accordingly, postdoctoral trainees in the program will be exposed to clinical and research activities in physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) and geriatrics. Trainees will interact with biomedical engineers, physician investigators, and medical trainees in PM&R and geriatrics. Research interests of the program include: human balance control, gait analysis, sensory prosthetics, nonlinear dynamics in physiology, and cardiovascular dynamics. Positions are for two years and are available immediately.

Qualifications:
A PhD in an engineering discipline, biomechanics, physics, mathematics or a related field is required. Women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Contact information:
Interested candidates should send a statement of research interests, a CV, and names of three references to: Professor J.J. Collins, Department of Biomedical Engineering and Center for BioDynamics, Boston University, 44 Cummington Street, Boston, MA 02215, email: ABL@bu.edu
