The post is an exciting opportunity for a research active lecturer to
advance within a dynamic and fast-growing research environment.
You will be required to teach biomechanics at undergraduate and
postgraduate levels to students within the School of Health Care
Professions, manage aspects of the gait lab and to develop your
research to a level consistent with submission to the 2007 RAE

Teaching responsibilities would cover undergraduate and
postgraduate courses including the areas of prosthetics, orthotics,
physiotherapy, podiatry, sports science, and others. The main
focus of teaching is prosthetics/orthotics and postgraduate.

You will be supported in the development of your own research
interests and encouraged to collaborate with other members of the
Centre for Rehabilitation and Human Performance Research
(http://www.healthcare.salford.ac.uk/crhpr/). The Centre's research
is focussed around the themes of assistive devices, human
movement studies and clinical patient evaluation. There are over 20
active researchers and at least 20 Research Students in the
Centre. External research income since 2001 stands at
1.5Million, and includes three EU funded projects, Research
Council funding, finances from UK based charitable sources and
industry funds. The biomechanics and gait research is supported
by purpose built human movement and human performance
laboratories. These house three 3D motion analysis systems, 4
force plates, telemetry EMG analysis and other equipment. There
will be a new 35m x 12m laboratory in the new 18 million Health
Faculty building, due for completion in late 2005. The Centre hosts
a biannual international biomechanics conference "biomechanics of
the lower limb in health, disease and rehabilitation".
