Motor Control Postdoctoral Fellow (2 years)
Start Date: September 1, 1995

I seek a postdoctoral fellow for an NSF funded study on the learning of
coordination during complex multijoint voluntary actions. I use computer
simulation and empirical methods to address phenomena and mechanisms that
underlie the learning of coordination between balance, posture and
voluntary task goals during multijoint pulls made by freely-standing
humans. Two new, large movement analysis laboratories are available with
full computerized capabilities for collecting and analyzing biomechanical
and EMG data (force plates, motion analysis, load cells).

Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. in motor systems neuroscience,
engineering, kinesiology or a related discipline. Knowledge of
biomechanics (including modeling), systems analysis, nonlinear dynamics, or
statistics are highly desirable. Good written communication skills would
be a strong plus. Opportunities exist for participating in seminars and
courses offered through the Institute for Neuroscience, Programs in Medical
Biomechanics, Physiology, Programs in Physical Therapy, and other
departments. Please send a letter of application (including career goals),
vita and the names, addresses and phone numbers of two references to Wynne
A. Lee, Ph.D., Programs in Physical Therapy, Northwestern University
Medical School, 645 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago IL 60611-2814. Email:
