Postdoctoral Fellowships

NIH training grant: "Pathophysiology and Rehabilitation of Neurologic

We will have one (or potentially two) openings 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,
or in an affiliated laboratory at Northwestern University.

The RIC is an academic rehabilitation hospital, affiliated with
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 departments.

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 theTraining Program include: W. Zev Rymer (Director - motor
control), Dudley Childress (Rehabilitation Engineering), Scott Delp
(computer simulation of musculoskeletal systems), Sandro Mussa-Ivaldi
(robotics in motor control and rehabilitation), Barry Peterson and
Emily Keshner (balance and posture), Jules Dewald (Pathophysiology of
stroke), Mark Rogers (Balance and falls) and LiQun Zhang (Systems
identification of neural control mechanisms).

Although fellows may work with any of the above faculty, work should be
related to the broad mission of the training grant. Position available
beginning July 1, for 2 year minimum. Stipends are based on NIH
recommendations, but are usually supplemented from private funds.
