PhD position (BAT IIa/2) in Jena open
for the DFG research project “Muscle-tendon-properties of small mammals

Eigenschaften des Muskel-Sehnen-Komplexes kleiner Säuger“
-------------------------------------------------------------


In the line of the DFG research project “Muscle-tendon-properties of
small mammals” a PhD position is open at the institute of Sportscience
(section: Science of Motion). The position is limited for two years, but
it could be prolonged potentially.

The aim of the project is the experimental estimation of muscle-tendon
properties of small mammals. Especially the adjustment to different
tasks like shock absorption, maximum power, damping and stabilisation
will be investigated. (compare e.g. : Wagner et al. (2005) „ISOFIT: a
model-based method to measure muscle–tendon properties simultaneously”
http://www.springerlink.com/app/home/issue.asp?wasp=e49e2db21a924b35944bbd677f4b975c&referrer=parent&backto=journal,1,13;linkingpublicationresults,1:10 9377,1).

Due to extensive experimental works the candidate (preferably zoologist
with programming knowledge or a physicist with biological knowledge)
should be interested in physiological questions concerning muscles and
their experimental realisation.

The candidate should have an above-average motivation and dedication. He
will have to co-operate with an interdisciplinary group of sport
scientists, biologists, medics, physicists and engineers.

Please send your application until 1.10.05 to the following address.
