Dear Biomch-L Subscribers,

The attached message was submitted to the Biomch-L Co-moderators.
If you are interested please respond directly to Professor Aruin.

Krystyna Gielo-Perczak, Biomch-L Co-moderator
The Knecht Movement Science Laboratory in the Department of Physical
Therapy, University of Illinois at Chicago
http://www.uic.edu/ahp/pt/Aindex.html is looking for a highly motivated
individual for a post-doctoral research fellow.

The four areas of focus for our research are: Control of posture in
health and disease, control of grip force, vocational rehabilitation, and
the development of new rehabilitation approaches. Currently funded
investigations include: the role of sensory cues on balance in peripheral
neuropathy; grip force control in individuals with multiple sclerosis, and
compelled body weight shift therapy in stroke.

The Knecht Movement Science Laboratory is equipped with a 6-camera
motion capture system (VICON), six-component force plates (AMTI, Kistler), a
16 channel EMG system (MA300), and several specialized test jigs for the
study of the neuromusculoskeletal system. The laboratory has both
extramural as well as intramural collaborations.

The requirements of the position include the completion of a PhD in
biomechanics, motor control, rehabilitation sciences, physical therapy, or a
related discipline; proficiency in the design and implementation of human
movement research including experience with motion capture and EMG systems
and in computer programming (e.g. MATLAB, LabView, Statistics packages,
etc.); and excellent communication skills.

The post-doctoral position is for one year and renewable to two years.
The position is supported by the National Institute on Disability and
Rehabilitation Research, available from June 1, 2009, and remains open until
the appropriate candidate is chosen.

Interested candidates should send cover letter, curriculum vita, and the
contact information for three references to:
