    Two Post-Doctoral Associate Positions Available Immediately at Arizona State

    We are seeking two qualified post-doctoral associates to participate in an
    NSF sponsored five year Integrated Graduate Education and Research Training
    (IGERT) program on Musculoskeletal and Neural Adaptations in Form and
    Function. The goal of this IGERT program is to introduce Ph.D. students with
    diverse biological and engineering backgrounds to the challenges of
    deciphering complex phenomena in neuroscience, biomechanics, rehabilitation,
    and musculoskeletal morphology, and to foster interdisciplinary education
    and training in research efforts toward meeting these challenges. Faculty
    members from Anthropology, Biology,
    Bioengineering, Computer Science, Exercise Science and Mathematical Biology
    participate in this new and exciting IGERT program.

    The responsibilities of the post-doctoral associates include playing a major
    role in (1) developing and equipping three core teaching and research
    laboratories ($500,000 available for Neurophysiology/Neuroengineering,
    Anatomy/Biomechanics, and Modeling/Simulation/Visualization), (2) assisting
    with instruction in laboratory research methods and with student projects,
    and (3) contributing to the interdisciplinary IGERT program through their
    own specific areas of interest. Candidates will have opportunities to
    collaborate with scientists from Barrow Neurological Institute and the
    Institute of Human Origins for joint research. Productivity in scientific
    journal publication and preparation and submission of grant applications is

    Qualification: Ph.D. in related field by the time of joining this program.
    Experience in the general area of neuromuscular control of movement or in
    the general area of biomechanics of musculoskeletal systems with a
    background in anatomy. (One position is available each experience area.)

    Desired: Demonstrated working knowledge in neural recording, data analysis
    and signal processing, animal and human behavior study, computer
    programming, biomechanical analysis of arm movement or locomotion, or
    modeling and simulation. Both experimental and computational skills are
    especially desired.

    Compensation: The initial appointment will be for two years with option to
    extend. The salary level is between $35,000-$45,000/yr depending on
    qualifications and experience.

    Application Procedure: The initial deadline is September 1, 2000 or every
    two weeks thereafter until both positions are filled. Please submit your
    application (Detailed vitae, references and a statement of research
    interests and career plan) to:
