The Center for Applied Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Research
(http://cabrr.cua.edu) at the National Rehabilitation Hospital
(http://nrhrehab.org), in Washington, DC, has a position available for a
biomedical engineering graduate student (MBE) to work on an NIH-funded
telemedicine development project. The successful candidate will be
expected to enroll in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the
Catholic University of America for the Fall 2007 semester, but an earlier
start date for research is a possibility.

The goal of the Center for Applied Biomechanics and Rehabilitation Research
is to study the behavior of neurological and musculoskeletal systems in
order to better understand the mechanisms of injury, physical disabilities,
and the process of functional recovery. Specifically, we strive to advance
the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular pathologies by utilizing
fundamental engineering principles and scientific methods.

The successful candidate will play a major role in a user-centered design
process that includes iterative software development and usability testing
of a customized videoconference-based telemedicine system for remote
speech-language pathology treatment. Excellent written and oral
communication skills are expected. Technical competencies preferred,
include: 1) experience with user interface design methodology, 2)
experience with C# programming and object-oriented design, and 3)
experience with human subject testing, data collection, and data analysis.

The position includes a tuition waiver and competitive stipend.

If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and a list of 3
references to:
