  • Post-Doctoral Position

    A post-doctoral research associate position is available September 2003
    in the Motion Analysis Laboratory, Physical Therapy Department at the
    University of Delaware.

    This position is funded by a multi-investigator NIH Project Grant (R01)
    entitled "FES and Biomechanics: Treating Movement Disorders". This
    research involves the development of a novel rehabilitation system for
    retraining walking ability in patients who have suffered a stroke. The
    project incorporates the use of FES, robotics and motor learning
    approaches to address this problem. Opportunities to develop
    complementary lines of research as well as to participate in related
    investigations of the motor dysfunction of stroke are also available.

    Position Requirements: Recent PhD in the area of human motor control
    with a strong biomechanics component. Candidates who are physical
    therapists and/or who have had experience with patients with
    neurological disorders will be given preference. The candidate should
    have demonstrated scholarly progress, including the preparation,
    submission and publication of manuscripts, and presentations at
    scientific conferences.

    Desired skills include: Experience with collection and analysis of human
    movement data, EMG collection and data analysis, experience with
    psychophysical experimentation; Experience with computer programming is
    a plus: We use Matlab, Labview and Visual3D rigid body software.

    Responsibilities: Coordination of patient scheduling and data
    collections; supervising doctoral student involved in project;
    participation with engineers in the design of the patient interface with
    robotic devices; consultation on the development and piloting of
    software to provide patient performance feedback; participation in
    further development and implementation of training protocols.
