Post-Doctoral Fellowship
in
Assistive Technology Research

The National Rehabilitation Hospital's Assistive Technology/Rehabilitation
Engineering Program has a post-doctoral position available for a qualified
person interested in exploring promising technologies that can be transferred
from the military to civilian use that will benefit persons with
disabilities.

The fellow will conduct research at the Assisitive Technology Research Center
(ATRC) located at NRH. This newly created Center is the result of a four
year grant from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materials Command. The
primary goal of the ATRC is to identify promising military and aerospace
technologies that may have application to rehabilitation medicine, as well as
the everyday lives of persons with disabilities, and to perform research that
will help facilitate the transfer of that technology into the private sector.
An appointment within the Biomedical Engineering Program at the Catholic
University of America (CUA) is also possible depending on the fellows's
qualifications.

Candidates should have a background in rehabilitation engineering and will be
expected to produce and submit research articles for publication; prepare and
present scientific or technical papers at conferences; and develop grants for
possible external funding. These objectives will be achieved with the
assistance of the fellowship's supervisor, project staff, and the facilities
and resources available to NRH and CUA.

Engineering, National Rehabilitation Hospital, 102 Irving Street, N.W.,
