Dear colleagues:

Please post and distribute

The Motor Control/Biomechanics Laboratories of The
University of Iowa Department of Exercise Science are
seeking qualified candidates interested in pursing a PhD
degree starting in September 2004. There is a broad
possibility of research topics involving control and
rehabilitation of prehension, reaching and walking.
Accepted students can work within the Motor Control
Laboratories (Dr. Kelly Cole, Dr. Warren Darling or Dr.
Michel Ladouceur). The Department and University offer a
vibrant research atmosphere including journal clubs,
research seminars and opportunities for collaborative
research.

The departmental laboratories are well equipped for gait
and motion analysis (Ascension Technologies Minibird
system, Optotrack), dynamometry (Bertec Force Plate,
ATI and JR3 3D load cells), electromyography (Delsys,
Bortec 8 channels, custom systems), peripheral nerve
stimulation (Grass, BAK , Digitimer DS7A & DS7AH HV
Constant Current Stimulator) and cortical stimulation (Bi-
stim system from Magstim, Digitimer D185 Transcranial
Electrical MultiPulse Stimulator) and EEG recording (32
channels Biosemi system).
