  • post-doctoral position

    A Post-Doctoral research position is available in the Virtual Reality and
    Postural Orientation Laboratory of Dr. Emily Keshner at the Sensory Motor
    Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The successful
    candidate will participate in NIH funded research that examines the
    effects of dynamic visual stimulation on the adaptive properties of human
    postural control ranging from the identification of basic neurophysiological
    mechanisms to clinical applications. Opportunities exist to interact in
    collaborative research with engineering faculty who specialize in
    mathematical modeling, neural network modeling, and virtual reality
    technology development and programming. For more information about
    the laboratory, please visit our website:

    Applicants should have a recent doctoral degree and will be expected to
    have a record of research in one or more of the following areas: motor
    control, biomechanics, biomedical engineering, or neuroscience.
    Laboratory experience with motion analysis, force platforms, and
    electromyography is useful. Some mathematical background and/or
    programming ability preferred.

    To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests, a
    curriculum vita, and the names of three individuals who can be contacted
    as references to:
    Dr. Emily Keshner

    Sensory Motor Performance Program
    The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation
    Institute of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal,
    neuromuscular, and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal
    control of posture and movement. Faculty members have appointments in
    the Northwestern University Medical School and the Northwestern
    University Engineering School. Approximately thirty-five research staff -
    including post-doctoral research associates, graduate students, and
    support staff -- make up a unique team of physicians, engineers,
    mathematicians, physiologists, and occupational & physical therapists for
    the study of motor and sensory dysfunctions. Our studies on healthy
    individuals, patients and mathematical models are internationally
    renowned in the fields of biomechanics, Neurophysiology, and
    rehabilitation research. See:
    RIC is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Woman and
    minority applicants are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent on
    eligibility to work in the United States.
