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. A PhD in an engineering discipline,
biomechanics, physics, mathematics or a related field is required.
Positions are for two years and are available immediately. Women,
minorities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

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
