  • Postdoc Position in Spinal Cord Injury

    A Post-Doctoral research position is available in the area of human spinal
    neurophysiology at the Sensory Motor Performance Program at the
    Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. The successful candidate will
    participate in NIH funded research that examines the properties of
    interneuronal pathways in individuals with spinal cord injury. This work
    combines the areas of neurophysiology and biomechanics and includes
    projects designed to have clinical impact on the treatment of spasticity in
    spinal cord injury. Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative
    research with engineering and neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor
    control, neurorehabilitation, motor learning, reflex function, robotics in
    rehabilitation, modeling, and systems engineering.

    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:
    neuroscience, motor control, biomechanics or biomedical
    engineering. Laboratory experience with electromyography and/or
    force/torque measurements 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. Brian D. Schmit
    Fax: 312-238-2208

    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.
