We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a post-doctoral position in the
Running Injury Laboratory at the University of Delaware in Newark, DE beginning
June 1, 2008. The laboratory research mission is aimed at understanding
relationships between lower extremity mechanics and injury. Our current focus
is on retraining faulty gait patterns in individuals at risk for stress fractures,
patellofemoral pain syndrome and knee OA. We also have ongoing projects in
the areas of imaging and modeling. Responsibilities include oversight of an NIH
and a DOD project focused on the short and longterm effect of gait retraining in
individuals at risk for stress fractures. The successful candidate will also be
involved in mentorship of graduate students enrolled in the interdisciplinary
Biomechanics and Movement Science program. A Motion analysis laboratory
houses an 8 camera Vicon motion analysis system, 2 Bertec Force Platforms, 16
channel Motion Lab EMG system, and a Quinton treadmill. In addition, we have
an Instrumented Treadmill Lab that houses an AMTI instrumented treadmill and
an 8 camera Vicon Motion Analysis System. In particular, we are looking for a
bright, energetic individual with excellent interpersonal skills. Research
experience in lower extremity mechanics, modelling and imaging is preferred.
