  • ONE Post-doctoral Fellowship and TWO Graduate Associateships in Motor Control - M.Santello, Arizona State University

    Post-doctoral Fellowship (1) and Ph.D. Associateships (2)
    available at Arizona State University

    Applications are invited for a Post-doctoral Fellowship and two PhD
    studentships in Motor Control under the supervision of Dr. Marco Santello at
    the Department of Exercise Science, Arizona State University. The research
    at the Motor Control Lab focuses on the control of grasping and the
    coordination of finger movement and forces. An overview of Dr. Santello's
    research can be viewed at:

    Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Motor Control (1): A
    post-doctoral position is available in the NIH-supported research project
    "Neural Control of Grasping". The main focus of this 4-year project is the
    simultaneous coordination of hand muscle activity and grip forces underlying
    grasping as a function of hand posture and task constraints. The project
    will involve recording intramuscular EMG (single and multi-unit recording),
    multiple contact forces/torques and data processing (mathematical modeling,
    statistical analysis). The resources of the lab include a multichannel EMG
    recording and muscle electrical stimulator, ATI Nano 17 force/torque
    transducers, Cyberglove as well as other motion analysis systems.
    Familiarity with signal processing, computer programming and modeling
    (Matlab and/or LabView) is desirable. Dr. Santello is also a member of the
    NSF-IGERT faculty (, an
    Interdisciplinary Graduate Training program involving several departments at
    ASU (Exercise Science, Bioengineering, Biology, Anthropology, Computer
    Science) as well as research groups in the Phoenix area (Barrow
    Neurological Institute and Good Samaritan Hospital). The research
    environment is particularly conducive to foster interactions and
    collaborations with other groups addressing complementary research
    questions. PhD in Motor Control or related field such as neurophysiology,
    biomechanics, or bioengineering required. Familiarity with signal
    processing, computer programming and modeling (MATLAB and/or LABVIEW)
    desired. The position is available starting from March 1, 2002. Application
    deadline is January 2, 2002 or every 2 weeks thereafter until filled.
    Applications must include a CV, a statement from the applicant including a
    letter of interest, a summary of research interests, and three letters of
    reference. Applications must be sent to: Marco Santello, Motor Control Lab,
    Department of Exercise Science, PEBE 107B, Arizona State University, Tempe,
    AZ 85287-0404 (for enquiries, please call: 480-965-8279, or email:

    PhD Associateships (2): The PhD associateships are available starting in the
    Fall 2002. Students interested in graduate studies in Motor Control are
    encouraged to send their application to: Jill Butler, Graduate Secretary,
    Exercise Science Program, Room 107B, PEBE, Arizona State University, Tempe,
    AZ 85287-0404 (ph: 480-965-9580). The program brochure with the application
    information can be downloaded from:
    The Interdisciplinary Exercise Science Graduate Program is designed to
    facilitate interdisciplinary and cross disciplinary research and includes
    emphasis in: Motor Control, Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, and Sport
    Psychology. Applicants must have completed a Masters Degree in an
    appropriate field of study. Master's in Motor Control or Kinesiology and
    familiarity with data acquisition, processing and analysis desired.
    Applicants need to submit by January 15, or every Tuesday thereafter until
    filled: ASU Graduate and Department application form (available on the
    website), GRE scores, TOEFL score (if appropriate), letter of intent, and
    three letters of recommendation.
