--------------------------------------------------- A postdoctoral research
fellowship is available at the UNT Health Science Center in the Physical
Medicine Institute. We are searching for an outstanding Post-doctoral
research fellow to assist in the upper extremity biomechanics involving both
basic and applied research. This position will prepare the selected
candidate for a competitive career in an academic or industrial research
setting. In the course of performing the duties of this position we
anticipate that the fellow will: 1) be exposed to state-of-the-art wrist and
hand research 2) become skilled in the design and implementation of
experimental techniques, 3) further develop scientific publishing skills by
authoring and co-authoring high quality journal articles, 4) have the
opportunity to participate in a number of ongoing interdisciplinary research
projects related to upper extremity biomechanics currently underway and/or
planned 5) encourage the individual's own research interests and grant
writing skills to support future work. The PMI represents an area of focus
and growth at the UNTHSC with its own, recently initiated, MS and Ph.D.
programs. It has strong collaborative connections with Osteopathic Research
Center, Public Health, Integrative Physiology and Anatomy. The Osteopathic
Heritage Foundation Physical Medicine Core Research Lab has 6000 square feet
lab space and state-of-the-art equipments. In addition it also has several
custom designed special purpose testing devices. The ideal candidate should
be able to perform independent research and have peer reviewed publications
in the field. Candidates should be familiar with kinematic, kinetics,
biomechanical modeling, EMG, accelerometry, motion analysis, force plates,
Lab View, experimentation, and use of statistical (e.g. SAS, SPSS) and
computational software packages (e.g. MatLab). Additionally, the candidate
should have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to
work independently as well as in a group setting that involves
interdisciplinary interactions with faculty, staff and students. A Ph.D. in
biomechanics, biomedical engineering, or mechanical engineering is required.
Strong candidates with a doctoral degree in a closely related field will
also be considered. UNTHSC is located in Fort Worth, Texas which is
routinely ranked as one of the most livable communities in the United
States, offering a wide variety of cultural, recreational and sporting
activities. Applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies
of two or more representative publications, and contact information for two
references to Ms. Crystal Ross at cross@hsc.unt.edu. Rita M. Patterson,
