Title: Motor Control/Biomechanics Postdoctoral Position

Location: Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA

Date: August 28, 2006

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 as well
as 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, motor
control, biomechanics, analysis of muscle activity, computational
neuroscience. Individuals with bioengineering 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. Send a CV, brief summary of research interests, and
names and contact details of three references to: Dr. Natalia Dounskaia,
Department of Kinesiology, Arizona State University, PO Box 870404,
Tempe, AZ 85287-0404, E-mail: natalia.dounskaia@asu.edu. ASU is an equal
opportunity employer.
