  • Post Doc and Assistantships at Penn State: Interview at ASB 2000Chicago

    The Center for Locomotion Studies at The Pennsylvania State University
    (CELOS) is inviting applications for immediate openings for one postdoctoral
    research assistant and two graduate assistantships. CELOS is an
    interdisciplinary research center in the College of Health and Human
    Development at Penn State. Current research projects include studies of
    normal and pathologic lower extremity biomechanics, stress fractures, the
    foot and ankle in diabetes, finite element analysis of the foot, exercise
    interventions to build bone mass and combat bone loss, stair descent by the
    elderly, lower extremity trauma, and studies on the International Space
    Station. Graduate students may register for degrees in Kinesiology,
    Bioengineering, and Mechanical Engineering. The faculty of CELOS includes
    dedicated faculty members Drs. Peter Cavanagh, Neil Sharkey, Stephen Piazza,
    and Jan Ulbrecht, as well as ten faculty affiliates. More information about
    CELOS is available at http;//

    Graduate Assistantships
    Applications are encouraged from quality students with baccalaureate and
    masters degrees in the Life Sciences or Engineering. Students and graduates
    with a background in Kinesiology, Physiology, Biology, Mechanical
    Engineering, Bioengineering, and Computer Science are encouraged to apply.
    The assistantships will pay a stipend and provide full tuition support.
    Dissertation projects are expected to be developed in conjunction one of
    several ongoing CELOS studies involving the biomechanics of lower extremity
    movement and function.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

    This position will support a grant awarded from the National Institutes of
    Health entitled "Design Criteria for Therapeutic Footwear in Diabetes." The
    goal of this research is to develop a quantitative approach to the
    prescription of therapeutic footwear through the development of a
    three-dimensional finite element model of the foot and varied footwear.
    Applications are encouraged from individuals with strong backgrounds in 3-D
    finite element modeling, biomechanics, bioengineering, and anatomy. The
    successful candidate will be appointed on an annual basis at a rate
    commensurate with other federally-funded postdoctoral appointees. See:

    Preferential consideration will be given to applicants expressing employment
    interest and availability for the full term of the project. CELOS will
    begin to review applications immediately and will continue to consider all
    applications until a successful applicant is found.

    To request an application and/or additional information on this opportunity,
    contact Dr. Lorraine Mulfinger, 29 Recreation Building, Penn State
    University, University Park, PA 16802; phone: 814-865-1972, email: CELOS reserves the right to reject any or all applicants.
    CELOS reserves the right to reject any or all applicants. Penn State is
    committed to affirmative action equal opportunity and the diversity of its
    workforce. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

    For information on any of these positions please contact Drs. Cavanagh,
    Sharkey, or Piazza at the American Society of Biomechanics Meeting in
