A Post-Doctoral research position is available in the Virtual Reality
and Postural Orientation Laboratory of Dr. Emily Keshner at the
Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of
Chicago. The successful candidate will participate in NIH funded
research that examines the effects of dynamic visual stimulation on
the adaptive properties of human postural control ranging from the
identification of basic neurophysiological mechanisms to clinical
applications. Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative
research with faculty who specialize in mathematical modeling, neural
network modeling, and virtual reality technology development and
programming. For more information about the laboratory, please visit
our website:

Applicants should have a recent 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. Laboratory experience with motion analysis, force
platforms, and electromyography is useful. Some mathematical
background and/or programming ability preferred.

To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests,
a curriculum vita, and three references to:

Sensory Motor Performance Program
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:
RIC is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Woman and
minority applicants are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent on
eligibility to work in the United States.
