Post-doctoral Position
Motion Analysis Laboratory
University of Delaware

Applications are now being solicited from highly motivated individuals for
an immediately available, 2 yr. post-doctoral position in the Motion
Analysis Laboratory at the University of Delaware. This position is made
available through a grant from the NIH to study dynamic knee stability
after ACL injury. This is a 4 year study currently in its second year to
investigate the development of stabilization strategies after acute ACL
rupture in active individuals. The primary responsibility of this position
is the coordination of ACL project; therefore, applicants should have
experience in project management and in the process of motion analysis
data collection and analysis.

The focus of the laboratory is the study of the relationship between knee
impairments (primarily quadriceps weakness) and function and the
development of effective rehabilitation strategies. Current funded
projects include NMES for Older Individuals After Total Knee Arthroplasty
(NIH) a clinical trial of NMES and traditional rehabilitation to counter
changes in muscle strength and function in older individuals after TKA;
and the effect of knee alignment on the progression of osteoarthritis as
part of a larger multi-project study at UD. The Motion Analysis
Laboratory is a 2500 sq foot facility that houses a 6 camera (M-cameras)
Vicon motion analysis system, including real time capabilities, 2 Bertec
force platforms and a 16 channel Motion Labs EMG systems. The Muscle
Performance laboratory houses two complete muscle performance set-ups
integrated with the system in the PT Clinic. The clinic is a 3500 sq ft
facility in the same building as the research laboratories and serves as a
resource for patient recruitment and test site for the interventional
