Postdoctoral Research Associate
in Motor Control/Neuromechanics/Robotics
Sensory Motor Performance Program,
Northwestern University and The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago
[Posted 25-Jul-2001]

The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation
Institute of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal,
neuromuscular and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal
control of posture and movement. Faculty members have appointments in the
Northwestern University Medical School and the Northwestern University
Engineering School. Approximately thirty-five research staff -- including
post-doctoral research associates, graduate students, and support staff --
make up a unique team of physicians, engineers, mathematicians,
physiologists, and occupational & physical therapists for the study of
motor and sensory dysfunctions. Our studies on healthy individuals,
patients and mathematical models are internationally renowned in the fields
of biomechanics, neurophysiology, and rehabilitation research. See:

SMPP is a part of the Rehabilitation Institute Research Corporation, the
research arm of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. It is academically
affiliated with the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at
Northwestern University Medical School. Many members of our staff are
affiliated with the departments of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Physiology, Physical
Therapy, the Institute for Neuroscience and other departments at
Northwestern University and in the Chicago area.

We are currently seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our
group motor under a training grant provided by the National Center on
Medical Rehabilitation Research. Research may involve, but is not
restricted to, quantitative electromyography, neural signal processing,
computational analysis of neuromechanics, and neural engineering, robotics
and/or the human machine interface. The applicant will benefit from the
mentorship of a distinguished group of senior faculty.

Applicants should have a doctoral degree and will be expected to have a
record of research in one or more of the following areas: motor control,
biomechanics, neurophysiology, biomedical engineering, or neuroscience.
Some mathematical background and/or programming ability preferred.

Applicants should be US nationals, or permanent residents.
