POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING

SENSORY MOTOR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM, REHABILITATION INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO

Two Post-doctoral positions have recently become available in the Reflex,
Movement and Spasticity Laboratory of W. Zev Rymer, MD PhD, at the Sensory
Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The
successful candidates will participate in extramurally funded research that
examines the development of mechanical abnormalities associated with
spasticity throughout the stroke recovery process, using advanced
engineering techniques. The studies will also address the association of
these abnormalities with impaired voluntary movement.

Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
and neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor control, reflex function,
neurorehabilitation, motor learning, robotics in rehabilitation, modeling,
and systems engineering.

Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree in biomedical engineering,
biomechanics, electrical or mechanical engineering, kinesiology,
neuroscience or a related discipline. A record of research in neuromuscular
systems, motor control, rehabilitation engineering, biomechanics,
neuroscience is preferred. Laboratory experience with biomechanical
measurements, electromyography, and motion analysis is useful.
Alternatively, experience with design and control of devices suitable for
human joint studies would also be helpful.

Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.

To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests, a
resume/curriculum vita, and the names of three individuals whom can be
contacted as references to:

Mehdi Mirbagheri, PhD

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 forty-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. For additional information see:
