    Job Posting

    There is a job opening at the University of Florida's Brooks Center
    for Rehabilitation Studies, which has laboratories in Gainesville
    and Jacksonville, Florida. The position will be located in
    although travel between sites will be routinely expected during
    employment. Jacksonville is located about 70 miles from
    the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville

    At the University of Florida's Brooks Center for Rehabilitation Studies

    there are several active research projects and clinical trials which
    combine theoretical and experimental approaches to investigate
    questions relevant to rehabilitation and the delivery of rehabilitation

    interventions. Current projects investigate the neural control and
    biomechanics of posture and locomotion, predominantly in
    persons with stroke and spinal cord injury.

    A position is available for a Biomedical Engineer to act as a
    Laboratory Technician/Manager and work on funded research projects.
    Preference will be given to those who can start immediately. At least
    BS degree in biomedical engineering or a related field plus
    experience is required. A Masters degree is strongly preferred.

    The successful applicant must be highly creative and ingenious in
    order to bring state-of-the-art engineering, science, and technology
    to the direct benefit of the disabled. He/She is expected to exercise
    originality and apply innovative techniques and strategies to develop
    apparatus and methods for testing important scientific hypotheses
    related to the disabled.

    The successful applicant must interact professionally with disabled
    individuals, clinicians, and other individuals or groups. Effective
    and innovative presentation skills in writing and speaking are
    He/She must demonstrate self-motivation and enthusiasm.

    Primary responsibilities are to provide day-to-day support for
    laboratory operation and maintenance, preparation for, scheduling of
    and assistance during experimental sessions, and data reduction and

    Basic engineering skills: Experience designing simple electronic
    circuits, and designing and machining parts for modification of
    laboratory equipment using standard machine shop tools.

    Instrumentation for measuring human anthropometric, kinetic, kinematic
    and EMG data: Experience in the specification, configuration,
    integration, calibration and maintenance of such instruments as
    dynamometers, force plates, optical encoders, 3-D motion analysis
    systems, EMG systems, amplifiers, goniometers, and computers.

    Ideally, at least one year of experience with 3-D motion analysis

    Analysis and reduction of experimental data: Experience with PC and
    UNIX workstation computers, system administration, signal-processing
    programs, database programs, statistical analysis programs and
    plotting programs. Experience developing new data processing
    programs in computer languages such as C and FORTRAN. Experience
    with programming in LABVIEW for data acquisition and control of

    Preparation of graphical figures and slides: Experience with
    presentation graphics software and production of effective slides and

    Stroke rehabilitation research: Experience in performing and
    the results of experimental protocols involving subjects with chronic
    hemiplegia subsequent to stroke.

    If accommodation is needed to apply for a position because of a
    call (352) 392-4621 or TDD 1-800-955-8771.
