Title: Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Rehabilitation Engineering
Location: Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA
Date: August 1, 2004

Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Wheeled Mobility

A 24 month post-doctoral position is available in the Center for Assistive
Technology and Environmental Access at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The
successful candidate will participate in research focusing on wheelchair
users, function and secondary disabilities. Potential projects include
instrumentation used to monitor community mobility by wheelchair users, the
study of tissue ischemia that leads to pressure ulcers, design and
development of assistive technologies, and the study of posture and
function of wheelchair users.

Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
and applied physiology faculty who specialize in motor control,
biomechanics, tissue imaging, and motion analysis.

Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree in biomedical engineering,
biomechanics, electrical or mechanical engineering, or a related
discipline. A record of research in one or more of the following is
preferred: motion analysis with EMG, remote data collection and data
logging, biomechanical measurements and modeling, experimental design,
and/or engineering design. Experience in human subject research related to
disability is desired as well. This position will also involve grant
writing and submitting manuscripts for publication.

Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.

To apply, e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests and
experience and a resume/curriculum vita to:
