Dear Subscribers,

Detailed below is a biomechanics position (actual vacancy) which has come
available in the department of Human Movement at the University of Western
Australia. Please pass along to any interested colleagues and/or post on
your notice boards. Any enquiries can be directed to either myself
("gwood") or Bruce Elliott ("belliott") at "@uniwa.uwa.ed.au".

Graeme A. Wood, PhD
Associate Professor (Biomechanics)
Department of Human Movement
The University of Western Australia



Applications are invited for appointment to the above position in the
Department of Human Movement. The position is offered in the first
instance on a 3 year fixed-term [renewable] basis but it is expected that,
subject to satisfactory performance, the successful applicant will
establish tenure. The appointee should hold a PhD or equivalent
qualification and be able to demonstrate a very strong computer background
[biomechanical modelling and computer simulation] and an interest in
analysis of gait. The ability to attract research grants and be capable
of supervision of master's and PhD students will also be an advantage.
While it would be expected that the appointee will contribute to the
Department's teaching, the major emphasis in this position would require
the establishment and running of a gait laboratory and involvement in
other movement analysis projects. The successful applicant would also be
expected to cooperate with the other biomechanists on staff with reference
to computer projects. Further information may be obtained from the Head
of Department, Associate Professor Bruce Elliott, on telephone [09] 380
