Postdoctoral positions in motor development

Postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the Motor
Development Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Indiana University,
under the supervision of Esther Thelen. The laboratory conducts research
in a wide range of topics relating to early skill acquisition and adult
skilled performance. Current projects include the development of limb
control and dynamics, early motor learning and memory, perseverative
reaching, the relationship between perception, action, and cognition, and
collaborations involving dynamic systems modeling and robotics. We study
normally developing infants and young children and skilled and less
skilled musicians. We are also doing research in Feldenkrais movement
education. The laboratory is very well equipped, with a two camera
Optotrak and a Peak systems, new Grass EMG polygraphs, 3-dimensional limb
perturbation device and extensive computer and video equipment.
The Department of Psychology is highly ranked and extremely lively
and productive. Strong programs in Cognitive Science and Neural Sciences
are available. We have ongoing collaborations with the Department of
Kinesiology as well.
Positions are available through NIH-funded research and training
grants in developmental processes. The training grant funding is
restricted to US citizens and holders of permanent residence cards. The
research funding is not so restricted.
Applicants will have a Ph.D. in motor science, biomechanics,
kinesiology, psychology, or related fields. Experience with motion
analysis, EMG, or modeling desirable. Interested applicants are asked to
send a current vitae, copies of publications or preprints, and 3 letters
of recommendation, along with a letter detailing research interests to:
Esther Thelen, Department of Psychology, Indiana University, Bloomington,
IN 47405, USA, or through email to THELENE@INDIANA.EDU, which can also be
