View Full Version : Post-Doctoral Position

02-05-2003, 01:40 AM
A post-doctoral research associate position is available September 2003
in the Motion Analysis Laboratory, Physical Therapy Department at the
University of Delaware.

This position is funded by a multi-investigator NIH Project Grant (R01)
entitled "FES and Biomechanics: Treating Movement Disorders". This
research involves the development of a novel rehabilitation system for
retraining walking ability in patients who have suffered a stroke. The
project incorporates the use of FES, robotics and motor learning
approaches to address this problem. Opportunities to develop
complementary lines of research as well as to participate in related
investigations of the motor dysfunction of stroke are also available.

Position Requirements: Recent PhD in the area of human motor control
with a strong biomechanics component. Candidates who are physical
therapists and/or who have had experience with patients with
neurological disorders will be given preference. The candidate should
have demonstrated scholarly progress, including the preparation,
submission and publication of manuscripts, and presentations at
scientific conferences.

Desired skills include: Experience with collection and analysis of human
movement data, EMG collection and data analysis, experience with
psychophysical experimentation; Experience with computer programming is
a plus: We use Matlab, Labview and Visual3D rigid body software.

Responsibilities: Coordination of patient scheduling and data
collections; supervising doctoral student involved in project;
participation with engineers in the design of the patient interface with
robotic devices; consultation on the development and piloting of
software to provide patient performance feedback; participation in
further development and implementation of training protocols.
