Post-Doctoral Position for Modeling of Walking at UT Austin:

The Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab has an NIH funded Postdoctoral position
available now to study the biomechanics and motor control of human
walking. The specific project involves applying advanced
computational modeling 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 that govern the control of
walking and to understanding the root causes of falling.

Prior experience with computational modeling of human movement is essential.

More information about the Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab and the kinds of
research we do (including most of our recent publications) can be
found on our web pages:
http://www.edb.utexas.edu/faculty/dingwell/

The salary is competitive with current NIH postdoctoral salary
rates. The position requires a minimum 2 year commitment, with a
possibility to pursue additional funding to extend. The start date
is flexible, but the position is available as soon as right now.

If you are interested, please e-mail a letter of interest, a detailed
CV (including full list of publications and GRE and TOEFL scores as
relevant), and the names of three colleagues who can be contacted for
references to Jonathan Dingwell .

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
