Munich from July 30 to August 4 and the American Society of Biomechanics
conference in Blacksburg, VA from September 6 to September 9. If the
position is not filled by these dates, I will gladly meet with anyone
interested in the position at either conference. Please contact me to
arrange an appointment or simply submit your letter and CV and we can
