The Stanford Human Motor Control and Balance laboratory seeks a full-time
researcher/post-doctoral fellow. The Stanford Human Motor Control and
Balance laboratory is part of the Stanford Movement Disorders Center within
the department of Neurology and Neurosciences at Stanford University School
of Medicine. Research in the laboratory focuses on the pathophysiology of
movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, dystonia, and tremor using
quantitative kinematics, dynamic posturography, electromyography, and human
brain electrophysiology. This position offers an exceptional opportunity to
participate in the development and expansion of the research program in gait
and balance disorders.



The position involves direct human subject interaction and testing, the
collection, and analysis of forceplate data, and the development of new
methods to measure gait and postural abnormalities in Parkinson's disease.
The desired candidate is a self-motivated, independent worker who is capable
of developing new research avenues. He or she is expected to participate
in the writing of manuscripts, presentations at meetings, and collaboration
with other laboratories.



The position requires training in bioengineering, mechanical engineering,
electrical engineering, neuroscience or a related field. Experience and
publications within the field of postural control and gait or kinematics is
necessary. Candidates should have an MS degree or higher (PhD preferred)
with strong mathematical, computational, and manuscript and grant writing
skills. Experience with MatLab and statistical software is necessary. In
addition, this position requires the interpersonal and communication skills
necessary to interact with patients and their families and excellent
organizational skills.
