POSTDOCTORAL TRAINING IN REHABILITATION ENGINEERING:
BOSTON UNIVERSITY AND HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL

The Integrated Rehabilitation Engineering Research Training Program (IREP)
is a newly established training program involving Boston University,
Harvard Medical School, Hebrew Rehabilitation Center for Aged, and
Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. IREP, which is funded by the National
Institute for Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), is a
clinically-oriented, scientifically-grounded, educational program for
training biomedical engineering postdoctoral fellows in rehabilitation
engineering. The objective of the program is to produce biomedical
engineers who are capable of communicating and interacting with physician
investigators in a significant and meaningful manner, and defining and
solving clinically-relevant problems in rehabilitation engineering. The
overall goal is to train a new cadre of biomedical engineers with the
knowledge and skills to develop innovative rehabilitation technologies
that directly benefit individuals with physical disabilities. Accordingly,
postdoctoral trainees in the program will be exposed to clinical and
research activities in physical medicine & rehabilitation (PM&R) and
geriatrics. Trainees will interact with biomedical engineers, physician
investigators, and medical trainees in PM&R and geriatrics. A PhD in
biomedical engineering or a related field is required. Positions are for
two years. Stipend is $32,000/year. The program starts September 1,
1999. Women, minorities, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged
to apply.

Interested candidates should send a statement of research interests, a CV,
and names of three references to: Professor J.J. Collins, Department of
Biomedical Engineering and Center for BioDynamics, Boston University, 44
Cummington Street, Boston, MA 02215, email: ABL@bu.edu
