A Post-Doctoral research position is available in the area of human spinal
neurophysiology at the Sensory Motor Performance Program at the
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The successful candidate will
participate in NIH funded research that examines the properties of
interneuronal pathways in individuals with spinal cord injury. This work
combines the areas of neurophysiology and biomechanics and includes
projects designed to have clinical impact on the treatment of spasticity in
spinal cord injury. Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative
research with engineering and neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor
control, neurorehabilitation, motor learning, reflex function, robotics in
rehabilitation, modeling, and systems engineering.

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:
neuroscience, motor control, biomechanics or biomedical
engineering. Laboratory experience with electromyography and/or
force/torque measurements 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:
Dr. Brian D. Schmit
Fax: 312-238-2208

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:
