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 engineering 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, 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 the names of three individuals who can be contacted
as 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.
