Clinical Gait and Movement Analysis Laboratory, Department of Physical
Therapy, University of Illinois at Chicago

A post-doctoral position has recently become available in the Clinical Gait
and Movement Analysis Laboratory of Clive Y.-C. Pai, PhD, at Department of
Physical Therapy, University of Illinois at Chicago. The successful
candidates will participate in extramurally funded research that determines
dynamic stability against slip-related perturbation during walking and the
underlying mechanisms for adaptive strategies, using advanced engineering
techniques and computer model simulations.

Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
and neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor control, motor learning,
orthopedic biomechanics, modeling, and automatic control 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
biomechanical modeling, simulation and optimization of multi-segment human
movement, dynamic stability and postural control, experimentally inducing
failure in balance recovery, motor control, motor learning, neuroscience is
preferred. Laboratory experience with biomechanical measurements,
electromyography, and motion analysis is useful.

Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.
