POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
NEUROMUSCULAR BIOMECHANICS LABORATORY AT CORNELL UNIVERSITY

Research topic:
Our Laboratory seeks applicants for a post-doctoral fellowship in
research projects seeking to understand the neuromuscular control of
human fingers during manipulation. She/he will learn to execute research
projects that combine behavioral neurophysiology, electromyography,
robotics and biomechanical modeling. The research projects are designed to
test hypotheses on the selection and execution of muscle coordination for
effective manipulation, sensorimotor integration, and the nature of muscle
redundancy (abundance).

Environment:
Our laboratory consists of an interdisciplinary group of graduate and
undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, clinicians, and faculty in
engineering, computer science, mathematics and bioengineering. Further
information about our laboratory can be found at:
http://www.mae.cornell.edu/valero
Our laboratory has close ties with the interdisciplinary programs
described at:
http://www.mae.cornell.edu/igert
http://biomech.mae.cornell.edu

Curriculum and training:
The candidate should have a Ph.D. in engineering, bioengineering or
neuroscience; and a strong interest in neuromuscular control. She/he must
have experience in at least two of the following: behavioral
neurophysiology, biomechanical modeling and electromyography. Preference
will be given to applicants with experience in fine-wire electromyography.
Expertise in computer languages (e.g., C++, MATLAB, etc) is necessary.

Applications process:
Please apply electronically by submitting a PDF file including a statement
of professional interests, a full CV, and names, addresses and phone
numbers of three professional references to Judy Thoroughman
(jmt14@cornell.edu).

Direct inquiries to Prof. Valero-Cuevas (fv24@cornell.edu)

The position is available immediately, and applications will be received
until the position is filled. Cornell University offers competitive salary
and benefits.
