The School of Applied Physiology at the Georgia Institute of Technology
invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position in the
area of biomechanics at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. Applicants
for this position should have well-documented interests in basic and
applied research in biomechanics and movement control. Applicants with
research interests in aging, rehabilitation medicine, Parkinson's disease
and/or prosthetics, are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will
be expected to contribute to the development of a graduate program in
Applied Physiology, teach and mentor Ph.D. students, and contribute to the
teaching of a core biomechanics course in gait analysis within the Masters
Degree Program in Prosthetics and Orthotics. Applicants must have an earned
PhD and a strong record of publication.

The School of Applied Physiology is in a growth phase with strong support
at all levels of Institute administration. Current faculty members are
active in the areas of biomechanics and the neural control of movement,
motor control and motor behavior, clinical prosthetics and orthotics,
muscle physiology, and systems physiology as applied to exercise.

for Assistive Technology and Environmental Access (CATEA), the School of
Psychology and the College of Engineering, and at Emory University School
of Medicine with the departments of Physiology, Cell Biology, Neurology,
Pharmacology , Internal Medicine, Vascular Surgery, Dermatology,
