View Full Version : Post-Doc and Graduate Study Positions at UT Austin

Post-Doctoral or Pre-Doctoral Study in Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin:

The Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab anticipates having two funded positions
available for Summer / Fall 2008 to study the biomechanics and motor
control of human movement. One position will be for a Post-Doc and
the other for a Ph.D. student. The specific projects will involve
applying advanced computational modeling and experimental approaches
to examine how movement coordination and dynamic stability are
regulated during human walking. This project will have applications
to understanding the basic neural and mechanical mechanisms which
govern the control of walking and to understanding the root causes of falling.

Prior experience with computational modeling of human movement and/or
analysis of biomechanical data (e.g., gait analysis) is strongly desired.

If you are interested in either position, please e-mail a letter of
interest, a detailed CV (with the list of publications), and three
names of colleagues who can be contacted for references to Jonathan
Dingwell . For students interested in the
Pre-Doctoral (i.e., Ph.D.) position, please also send GRE and TOEFL
scores (if applicable).

research we do can be found on our web pages:
