JOB OPPORTUNITY
PHYSICAL THERAPIST FOR GAIT LABORATORY

The Shriners Hospital, Intermountain Unit in Salt Lake City, Utah has
an opening for a full-time physical therapist in our new Gait
Laboratory. This laboratory is being equipped with a six-camera VICON
370 system, four AMTI force plates, E-med and Pedar pressure
distribution systems, Motion Lab surface and fine wire EMG, upper
extremity instrumented walking aides and a motorized dynamometer. An
interdisciplinary team approach, consisting of physicians, engineers,
therapists, kinesiologists, prosthetists and orthotists, will be
promoted.

The Intermountain Unit supports both clinical and research efforts.
Clinically, we serve patients from six intermountain states and two
Mexican provinces with the most frequent patient conditions being
cerebral palsy, myelomeningocele, scoliosis and upper and lower
limb prosthetics and orthotics. Research efforts are strengthened
via a close affiliation with the University of Utah (the distance
between the University and Shriners Hospital is less than 2 miles).
In addition, there is potential for funding and multi-site studies
within the Shriners system.

Candidates for this position should have a professional degree in
physical therapy (advanced degree preferred) and a background in
pediatrics and biomechanics. Salary and benefits are
competitive and based on previous work experience and education.
Shriners hospitals are equal opportunity employers that provide a
stable, productive work environment in the health care field.

Interested applicants should forward a statement of purpose and their
resume to Dr. J D'Astous, Medical Director Gait Laboratory, Shriners
Hospital, Intermountain Unit, Fairfax Road at Virginia Street, Salt
Lake City, UT 84103.
