A post-doctoral position has recently become available
in the Clinical Gait and
Movement Analysis Laboratory of Clive Y.-C. Pai, PhD,
at Department of Physical
Therapy, University of Illinois at Chicago. The
successful candidates will participate
in extramurally funded research that determines
dynamic stability against slip-related
perturbation during walking and the underlying
mechanisms for adaptive strategies,
using advanced engineering techniques and computer
model simulations.

Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative
research with engineering and
neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor control,
motor learning, orthopedic
biomechanics, modeling, and automatic control

Applicants should have a doctoral degree in biomedical
engineering, biomechanics,
electrical or mechanical engineering, kinesiology,
