    Post-doctoral Position
    Motion Analysis Laboratory
    University of Delaware

    Applications are now being solicited from highly motivated individuals for
    an immediately available, 2 yr. post-doctoral position in the Motion
    Analysis Laboratory at the University of Delaware. This position is made
    available through a grant from the NIH to study dynamic knee stability
    after ACL injury. This is a 4 year study currently in its second year to
    investigate the development of stabilization strategies after acute ACL
    rupture in active individuals. The primary responsibility of this position
    is the coordination of ACL project; therefore, applicants should have
    experience in project management and in the process of motion analysis
    data collection and analysis.

    The focus of the laboratory is the study of the relationship between knee
    impairments (primarily quadriceps weakness) and function and the
    development of effective rehabilitation strategies. Current funded
    projects include NMES for Older Individuals After Total Knee Arthroplasty
    (NIH) a clinical trial of NMES and traditional rehabilitation to counter
    changes in muscle strength and function in older individuals after TKA;
    and the effect of knee alignment on the progression of osteoarthritis as
    part of a larger multi-project study at UD. The Motion Analysis
    Laboratory is a 2500 sq foot facility that houses a 6 camera (M-cameras)
    Vicon motion analysis system, including real time capabilities, 2 Bertec
    force platforms and a 16 channel Motion Labs EMG systems. The Muscle
    Performance laboratory houses two complete muscle performance set-ups
    integrated with the system in the PT Clinic. The clinic is a 3500 sq ft
    facility in the same building as the research laboratories and serves as a
    resource for patient recruitment and test site for the interventional
