Rehabilitation Research Fellowship - Biomechanics Track

The Mayo Clinic Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
together with the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory is pleased to
announce the opportunity for postdoctoral research sponsored by the
National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR). Specifics
of these fellowships include:

Eligibility:

Physicians with training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
Neurology, and Orthopedics.

PhDs or equivalent training in rehabilitation-related fields such
as occupational therapy, physical therapy, exercise science and
biomechanical engineering.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens or lawful permanent resident,
non-citizen nationals.

Biomechanics Research Areas:

An opportunity to (1) develop disciplined research skills in the environment
of an established, well-recognized biomechanics laboratory and (2) use these
skills to develop independent research with a mentor. The research begins
with current Biomechanics Laboratory projects such as gait, wheelchair
kinematics analysis and progresses to independent self-directed research.
Areas emphasized in this track include gait and balance, upper and lower
extremity joint mechanics, kinematics and kinetics, musculoskeletal
rehabilitation and movement disorders.

Mentors:

Individuals with national and international research reputations from Mayo
Departments of Biomechanics, Neurology, Orthopedics, Physical Medicine and
Rehabilitation, and Sports Medicine.

Resources:

Research laboratories and clinics as well as the Mayo Graduate School.
Exceptional resources are also available in the following areas:

Statistics and regression analysis
Epidemiology
Research ethics
Clinical research and trial design
Animal research
Questionnaire and survey research
Computer methods
