Title: Motor Control/Biomechanics Postdoctoral Position
Location: Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA
Date: April 4, 2005

A postdoctoral position in the Movement Control and Biomechanics Lab at Arizona State University is available immediately to study control and coordination issues in goal-oriented movements from a multilevel perspective. Studies involve healthy young adults, elderly and Parkinson's disease patients and are supported by NIH research grants. The goal of our research is to investigate strategies used by the central nervous system to organize goal-directed human movements. Another goal is to study breakdowns in these strategies in special populations. The emphasis is done on understanding how the central control strategies are adjusted to the biomechanical properties of human limbs. A Ph.D. or an equal degree is required. A strong background in one or more of the following areas is preferred: analysis of human movements, analysis of muscle activity, motor control, biomechanics, computational neuroscience. Individuals with bioengineering and electrical engineering background are also encouraged to apply. Initial appointment is for two years with the possibility for extension if funds are available. Excellent salary and fringe benefits.
