Biomechanics Research Laboratory
Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics
University of Michigan

A Post-Doctoral Scholar is sought to conduct research in geriatric
biomechanics with emphasis on studies of falls and mobility impairments
among healthy and frail old adults. The Laboratory has the space,
equipment, support staff and experience to foster research in these areas.
The Laboratory cooperates in geriatric biomechanics research with the
University's Division of Geriatric Medicine, Institute of Gerontology,
Neuropsychology Program, Bioengineering Program and other University units.

Applicants must hold a recent PhD in engineering or in a closely related
field. Desirable additional qualifications include graduate-level training in
and/or laboratory experience with dynamics, control systems and
instrumentation. Familiarity with digital data acquisition and processing,
computer simulation and optimization and writing of scientific journal
articles and proposals would also be desirable.

The initial appointment will be for 12 months at full-time, at an annual
salary of approximately $30,000. This appointment may be renewable
if mutually agreeable to the applicant and the Laboratory, and if
Laboratory funding permits renewal.

Preference may be given to applicants who are US citizens or permanent
residents, since the University's Institute of Gerontology may be able
to partially fund those applicants through a Training Grant from the
National Institute on Aging.

We hope to fill this position by May 15, 1995, but will consider all
applications until the position is filled.
