    Job Posting: January 9, 2002

    Michael W. Krzyzewski Human Performance Laboratory (K-LAB)
    Duke University Medical Center
    Duke Sports Medicine - Division of Orthopaedic Surgery
    Durham, NC

    K-LAB MISSION: The primary mission of the K-Lab is to better understand
    the injury mechanism in human movement and sport through biomechanical
    and physiological research, testing, and training, which will help
    minimize injury risk during sport and functional activities. A
    secondary mission of the K-Lab is to enhance human performance in sport
    and human movement.

    RESPONSIBILITIES and SKILLS: Candidate will participate in research
    design, data collection, and data analysis (see web site above for
    previous and current research projects). Candidate will work with the
    Duke Sports Medicine Director and the K-Lab Director in developing
    research projects.

    Highly desirable skills include advanced computer programming, advanced
    computer optimization and simulation, mathematical muscle modeling
    (especially, but not limited to, the knee and shoulder), experience
    working with inverse dynamics solutions, experience working with Motion
    Analysis Hi RES System, KinTrac, OrthoTrac, and SIMM software,
    experience in fine wire and surface EMG, and experience in working with
    force platforms.

    QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum qualifications include an M.S., but preferably a
    Ph.D., in Biomedical Engineering, Biomechanics, or related fields, and
    have a strong interest in working in Sports Medicine in order to better
    understand the injury mechanism in sport and human movement.

    FACILITIES: We have a state of the art human performance laboratory
    (approximately 75 ft in length by 35 ft in width) housed within our new
    Duke Sports Medicine Complex. Our research staff includes individuals
    who specialize in biomechanics, mechanical engineering, exercise
    physiology, orthopaedics, sports medicine, and epidemiology. Primary
    equipment includes a 6-camera (240 Hz) EVa Hi-RES Motion Analysis
    System, a 2 camera (120 Hz) Peak Performance System, 2 AMTI Force
    Platforms, a Noraxon 16 channel telemetry EMG system and 8 channel hard
    wire EMG system (surface and fine wire), a Vista Mini-CPX VO2
    Measurement System (Vacu-Med) with treadmill and two bicycle ergometers,

    a Biodex System, and numerous computers and software.

    Applications should e-mail the following:

    A cover letter including professional goals and interests (include in
    cover letter the following job code:
    (K-Lab Research Specialist)
    A curriculum vitae highlighting education, work experience, and
    Names and current contact information of three professional references
