POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, NEUROMUSCULAR SYSTEMS &
REHABILITATION



Sensory Motor performance PROGRAM, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Dept., Northwestern University



A postdoctoral position has recently become available in the Neural
Engineering Laboratory of W. Zev Rymer, MD PhD, at the Sensory Motor
Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The successful
candidate will participate in extramurally funded research that
characterizes the abnormalities in mechanical properties of passive tissues,
muscles, and reflexes in stroke and spinal cord injured subjects, and their
relationship with impaired voluntary movement. The studies will also examine
the effects of specific therapeutic interventions on these neuromechanical
abnormalities and impaired function.



Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
and neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor control, reflex function,
neurorehabilitation, motor learning, robotics in rehabilitation, modeling,
and systems engineering.



Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree in biomedical engineering,
electrical or mechanical engineering, kinesiology, neuroscience or a related
discipline. A record of research in neuromuscular systems, motor control,
rehabilitation engineering, biomechanics, and neuroscience is preferred.
Laboratory experience with biomechanical measurements, electromyography, and
motion analysis is useful.



Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.



To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests, a
resume/curriculum vita, and the names of three individuals whom can be
contacted as references to:

Sensory Motor Performance Program

The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation Institute
of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular,
and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal control of posture
and movement. Faculty members have appointments in the Northwestern
University Medical School and the Northwestern University Engineering
School. Approximately forty-five research staff - including post-doctoral
research associates, graduate students, and support staff -- make up a
unique team of physicians, engineers, mathematicians, physiologists, and
occupational & physical therapists for the study of motor and sensory
dysfunctions. For additional information see:
