NIH-funded, 2-year postdoctoral position available at SUNY Stony Brook
beginning Oct 1, 2004. This position will focus on investigating functional
interactions between spine biomechanics and the nervous system, with
particular emphasis on investigating the mechanisms that underlie the
clinical effects of spinal manipulative therapy. The post-doc will work
sequentially in two locations: SUNY Stony Brook and Palmer University,
Iowa. Using a cat model, neural responses of single sensory neurons
innervating a facet joint capsule in the lumbar spine will be recorded
while simultaneously measuring capsular loading and deformation. The ideal
candidate will have a good background in the neurosciences and/or
biomechanics and be familiar with electrophysiological recordings from the
peripheral and/or central nervous system. A Ph.D. or other relevant
graduate degree is required. Salary is commensurate with experience and
includes standard university health benefits. Send summary of research
interests, CV and contact information from three references to Dr. Partap
S. Khalsa (partap.khalsa@stonybrook.edu), S.U.N.Y. at Stony Brook,
Department of Biomedical Engineering, HSC-T18 Room 030, Stony Brook, NY
