Contact: Dr. Robert Gregor
Professor and Head
Department of Health and Performance Sciences
Director, Center for Human Movement Studies
404-894-1028 (Secretary at 404-894-3986)

Description: A Research Assistant is needed to work 50% time on each of
two projects. One project, funded by NIH, involves gait analysis in
elderly subjects transitioning to frailty engaged in either an
intense Tai Chi Exercise program or a Wellness Education program. A
second project involves basic research in the neural control of
movement, is funded in part by NIH, and requires work with an animal
model.  Assistance with data collection, data analysis and
reduction is needed on both projects.  Data in both projects involve
high speed video and forceplate records and analysis using rigid
body mechanics. Standard biomechanical analyses are used to address
research objectives in each project.

Qualifications: We are looking for someone interested in understanding
basic mechanisms in movement control. Someone with a background in the
life sciences with skills in computer analysis, basic mechanics and
some experience in working with animal models is desirable. Engineers in
mechanical or biomedical engineering with an interest in life
science and systems level physiology related to movement control are also
encouraged to apply. This position is ideal for someone recently
graduated at either the masters or bachelors level and interested in
working for a period of at least one year in research with career
objectives in fields such as medicine, physical therapy, biomedical
engineering or graduate work in the movement sciences.

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience at either the
bachelors or masters level. Position must be filled immediately.
