Post-doctoral Fellowship
Running Injury Laboratory
University of Delaware
Newark, Delaware

We are seeking a highly motivated and energetic individual for a
post-doctoral fellowship to join our research team and work in the area of
stress fractures. Current research is supported by NIH and DOD grants.
Projects involve an innovative approach to intervention using real time
feedback to alter faulty gait patterns, as well as a modeling study to
estimate tibial strains and strain rates. Other ongoing projects include
studies of knee OA and patellofemoral pain syndrome. The patellofemoral
pain syndrome research involves imaging studies including MRIs during
weightbearing (in collaboration with individuals at Kessler Rehabilitation
and physicists from FONAR Corporation). In addition, we are engaged in a
collaborative study of dual fluoroscopy with the University of Pittsburgh
Dept. of Orthopedics. Along with coordinating the stress fracture
research, the post-doctoral fellow will gain experience in grant writing,
scientific presentations, manuscript writing and mentoring.

The Biomechanics and Movement Science Program is an interdisciplinary
community with many ongoing collaborations. Newark, Delaware is a
university community that is 1 hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore, 1.5 hrs
from the beach and the mountains, and 2 hours from New York City and
Washington, DC.

The ideal candidate will have research experience in the area of lower
extremity mechanics, and modeling and/or imaging. Excellent verbal and
written communication skills are required. Interested candidates should
send a cover letter, CV and two letters of recommendation by email to:
