Applications are invited for a Post Doctoral Researcher with up to four
years of funding in the Motor Control Laboratory of the Physical Therapy
Department and Biomechanics and Movement Science Program, University of
Delaware, Newark, DE, USA.

The successful applicant will be expected to have experience and
research interests in areas relevant to a National Institutes of Health
supported project entitled "Coordination of reaching in healthy adults
and stroke ". He or she will be involved in all aspects of the project,
and will work in close collaboration with the Principal Investigator Dr.
John Scholz. Opportunities also exist to participate in collaborations
of Dr. Scholz with Drs. Gregor Schöner, Mark Latash, Slobodan Jaric, and
Cole Galloway.

Kinematic, kinetic and EMG measures of movement performance will be used
to explore the predictions of recent simulations of a three level model
of motor control and to address related issues of coordination of
reaching and other upper extremity tasks in healthy adults and
individuals with a stoke at various stages of functional recovery.

We are seeking an individual with prior doctoral training in motor
control, neurophysiology, cognitive neuroscience or related areas who
have experience working with patients with neurological dysfunction.
Preference will be given, but not limited to individuals who have
additional training as a physical or occupational therapist. The ability
to program, mathematical/computational experience (especially in time
series and signal processing,) and prior experience with motion analysis
and electromyography would be a highly advantageous.

This is a full-time fixed-term appointment. The starting salary will be
$32,000 per year with additional fringe benefits. .

The University of Delaware Physical Therapy Program ranks 4th in the
nation among graduate physical therapy programs (US News and World
Report, 2004). The Biomechanics and Movement Science Program is a
multi-disciplinary program that includes the Departments of Physical
Therapy, Mechanical Engineering - Bioengineering, and Exercise Science.

Inquiries should be directed to John Scholz at 302-831-6281 or
