    Title: Post-Doctoral Scientist
    Location: Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan
    Date: May 27, 2003

    The McPhail Equine Performance Center is a state-of-the-art facility
    for equine gait analysis located at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
    The mission is to perform basic and clinical research related to
    investigations of sport performance and gait pathology in athletic horses.
    Equipment includes a 6-camera Motion Analysis RealTime system;
    AMTI force plate; Noraxon EMG; accelerometers; and transducers
    used in custom applications.

    Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering
    or a related field. Previous experience in a gait laboratory is required,
    but experience with horses is not necessary. The ideal applicant will be
    highly motivated and able to work independently, but also a good team
    player with strong interpersonal skills. Candidates should have strong
    written and oral communication skills.

    The position requires a thorough knowledge of kinematic and kinetic
    analysis of gait, including inverse dynamic analysis, computer
    programming skills, and familiarity with gait analysis
    instrumentation. The duties include analysis of 3-D kinematic
    and kinetic data, programming (MATLAB is required), and
    development of custom applications in the equine field. The
    successful applicant will participate in research design, data
    collection, data analysis, preparation of manuscripts, and
    supervision of undergraduate and graduate students as part of an
    inter-disciplinary team of veterinarians and biomechanists. There
    is an opportunity to conduct independent research and to attend
    professional meetings.

    The position is available immediately and is initially offered for one year.
    It may be extended depending upon the candidate's performance and
    availability of funding. Salary commensurate with qualifications and
    experience. Please send curriculum vitae and three letters of reference to:
