Title: Motor Control/Biomechanics Postdoctoral Position

Location: Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA

Date: December 12, 2007



A postdoctoral position in the Movement Control and Biomechanics Lab at
Arizona State University is available immediately to study control and
coordination issues in goal-oriented movements from a multilevel
perspective. The study involves healthy young adults and is supported
by NSF research grant. The goal of our research is to investigate
strategies used by the central nervous system to organize goal-directed
human movements as well as to study breakdowns in these strategies in
special populations. The emphasis is done on understanding how the
central control strategies are adjusted to the biomechanical properties
of human limbs. A Ph.D. or an equal degree is required. A strong
background in one or more of the following areas is preferred: analysis
of human movements, motor control, biomechanics, analysis of muscle
activity, computational neuroscience. Individuals with bioengineering
background are also encouraged to apply. Initial appointment is for two
years with the possibility for extension if funds are available.
Excellent salary and fringe benefits. Send a CV, brief summary of
research interests, and names and contact details of three references
