One pre-doctoral and two post-doctoral positions are announced.

PRE-DOCTORAL POSITION:
Students with an interest in early motor development and intervention in
infants with disabilities, especially those at risk for cerebral palsy, are
encouraged to apply to pursue a PhD in Kinesiology. I am seeking a highly
motivated student, with good oral and written communication skills. A
strong foundation in motor control, biomechanics, and statistics is
preferred.
The student will pursue his/her PhD under the supervision of Dr. Rosa
Angulo-Barroso,
(http://www.kines.umich.edu/faculty/full-time/angulo.html,
http://www.chgd.umich.edu/faculty/angulo-barroso.html)

All applications received by Feb 1, 2007 will be reviewed fully and
considered for funding.

POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS:
These are 2 year-term positions to collaborate in pre-existing grants and
develop/continue the candidate’s own research line.

At the Dept. of Movement Science (1 federally funded postdoctoral position)
We are following infants at risk from 6 months of age until they walk
independently, and then we follow them for an additional 6 months to
evaluate the impact of a home-implemented treadmill training intervention
on the quality and adaptability of their gait. Knowledge of 3D motion
analysis, gait analysis, and strong analytical and writing skills are
required. A doctorate in Kinesiology, neuroscience, engineering, or allied
discipline is expected. Experience in experimental studies of human
movement is required. Experience with longitudinal quantitative methods,
computer modeling or programming, and databases is desirable. Good
organizational and management skills and effective written and oral
communication are essential.
The post-doctoral candidate will work under Dr. Rosa Angulo-Barroso and
will be affiliated with the Center for Motor Behavior and Pediatric
Disabilities. Opportunities for collaborations and training within the
center exist.

At the Center for Human Growth and Development (1 federally funded
postdoctoral position)
We will be assessing the motor, cognitive and affective performance of
infants in China and evaluating the role of iron deficiency in these
children. Infants and their mothers will be examined from pregnancy until
the child turns 2 years of age. Knowledge of motor and attention assessment
methods is required. A doctorate in Kinesiology, psychology, child
psychology, neuroscience, or related discipline is expected. Experience in
experimental studies of human infants is required. Experience with
longitudinal or observational methods, computer modeling or programming,
and databases is desirable. Good organizational and management skills and
effective written and oral communication are essential.
The post-doctoral candidate will work under Dr. Rosa Angulo-Barroso and
collaborate with Dr. Betsy Lozoff. She/he will be affiliated with the
Center for Human Growth and Development. Opportunities for collaborations
and training within the center exist.
