We are currently seeking Post_Doctoral Research Associates to work in the
Movement Neuroscience Laboratory at Penn State University.

Our research program is focused on discerning the neural mechanisms
underlying control of multijoint reaching movements in humans. Our
techniques employ both psychophysical experiments and biomechanical
simulations to determine the neural processes underlying control of the
complex mechanics of the musculoskeletal system. The laboratory is equipped
for 3-Dimensional kinematic recordings, electromyographic recordings, and
force/torque transducer recordings for isometric studies. We are currently
implementing a robot arm manipulandum for studies employing applied force
fields. Our laboratory has several high-end computer workstations for
computational simulations. Custom software, developed within our laboratory,
is used to interface this equipment. We are funded by NIH.

The position has a minimum 2 year commitment. Funding is available for up to
5 years. My goal for this position is to prepare the individual for a
competitive career in academic science. Three main objectives are: 1) To
expand and enhance skills in data acquisition and analysis 2) To expand
scientific reporting skills and to publish several high quality articles 3)
To become familiar with the process of scientific grantsmanship and to
develop grant writing skills. The successful applicant will participate
in ongoing experiments and in the development of new projects. The starting
date is negotiable with late spring as a target.

Please send a letter, Vita and names of 3 references to me by email
or paper at the address below.
