Post-doctoral Position

University of Delaware

Applications are now being solicited from highly motivated individuals for
an immediately available, 2 yr. post-doctoral position in the Muscle
Performance and Motion Analysis Laboratories at the University of Delaware
mentored by Dr. Lynn Snyder-Mackler. The focus of the laboratory is the
study of the relationship between knee impairments (primarily quadriceps
weakness), function, and the development of effective rehabilitation
strategies. This position is made available through a grant from the NIH to
study movement compensations after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This grant
is a 5 year study currently in its first year to investigate the evolution
of movement patterns after TKA. The primary responsibility of this position
is the coordination of TKA project, participation in data analysis, and
manuscript preparation for the recently completed randomized clinical trial
NMES for Older Individuals After Total Knee Arthroplasty (NIH). Therefore,
applicants should have experience in project management, processes of motion
analysis data collection and analysis, and good writing skills. Preference
will be given to licensed physical therapists.

Other current funded projects include two additional R01's that study ACL
injury, one an international collaboration with colleagues in Norway and an
SBIR to develop and test a new neuromuscular electrical stimulator.

The Motion Analysis Laboratory is a 2500 sq foot facility that houses an 8
camera Vicon motion analysis system, including real time capabilities, 2
Bertec force platforms in the walkway and one imbedded in stairs and two 16
channel Motion Labs EMG systems. The Muscle Performance laboratory houses
two complete muscle performance set-ups integrated with the system in the PT
Clinic. The clinic is a 3500 sq ft facility in the same building as the
research laboratories and serves as a resource for patient recruitment and
test site for the interventional studies.
