NIH training grant
"Pathophysiology and Rehabilitation of Neurologic Disorders"

We have a new opening on an NIH training grant, funded by the National
Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) for a postdoctoral
fellow, to work in the Sensorimotor Performance program (SMPP) at the
Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The RIC is an academic rehabilitation
hospital, affiliated with, and located immediately adjacent to Northwestern
University Medical School. The SMPP is a motor control and biomechanics
laboratory, devoted to the study of human movement and its disturbances in
neurologic and musculoskeletal disorders. Faculty hold appointments in
several medical school and engineering deparments.

APPLICANTS MUST BE US NATIONALS or permanent residents, and should have
completed all the requirements for the doctorate. Applicants in engineering
sciences (BME, EE, ME), neuroscience, kinesiology, or clinical disciplines
are invited to apply. Women, minorities, and disabled candidates are
especially welcome.

Faculty of the SMPP include Zev Rymer (Director - motor control), Tom
Buchanan (neuromuscular biomechanics), Scott Delp (computer simulation of
musculoskeletal actions), Sandro Mussa-Ivaldi (robotics in motor control
and rehabilitation), Barry Peterson and Emily Keshner (balance and
posture), Jules Dewald (pathophysiology of stroke and spinal cord injury),
and LiQun Zhang (systems identification of neural control mechanisms).

Although the postdoctoral fellow may work with any of the above faculty,
work must be related to the topic of the training grant.

Position available January 1 1996, for 2 year minimum.
