  • Fellowship in Biomechanics-Balance Studies

    Please post the following position. If you have any questions, please
    contact me at the number below or via email. Thank you.
    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study human movement
    and balance with emphasis on the biomechanics of balance and mobility in the
    elderly. The postdoctoral fellow will develop mathematical models of
    postural control along with innovative approaches for studying dynamic
    stability of patients with balance impairments, such as vestibular
    dysfunction, traumatic brain injury, and cerebral palsy. The postdoctoral
    fellow will collaborate in these investigations with the Vestibular/Balance
    Laboratory and the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

    Traineeships are available for two (under exceptional circumstances three)
    year periods. Physicians who have recently completed residency training in
    rehabilitation-related fields (e.g., Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
    Neurology, Orthopedics and Rheumatology) and Ph.D.s in specialties relevant
    to balance and rehabilitation (e.g., engineering, motor control,
    computational neuroscience, and biomechanics) are eligible for
    consideration. Experience with motion analysis systems, force platforms, and
    electromyography would be beneficial. Successful candidates will be
    selected on the basis of academic record, research experience, career goals,
    letters of recommendation and motivation for a career in academic
    rehabilitation. Women and under-represented minorities are encouraged to

    ELIGIBILITY: Applicant must also be a citizen or non-citizen national of
    the United States or must have been legally admitted as a permanent
