    Motor control and kinematics of tool use in humans

    Tulane University in New Orleans is seeking applications for an NIH-funded
    postdoctoral research position to study motor control and kinematics of
    tool use in infants and young children under the supervision of Dr. Jeffrey
    Lockman (Department of Psychology) and Dr. Duncan J. Irschick (Department
    of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology). The primary goal of the project is
    to study how infant object manipulation and toddler tool use are related in
    human development. Potential relations will be documented with both 2-D
    and 3-D kinematic and behavioral techniques. Applicants should have
    experience with kinematic and/or motor control analysis, preferably in
    humans, although researchers working with other organisms will be
    considered. Preference will be given to individuals with a strong
    publication record and quantitative skills. The researcher will be
    expected to work closely with both graduate and undergraduate students.
    Funding is available for up to 5 years. Interested applicants should send
    a C.V., statement of research goals, contact information for 3 references,
    and representative publications to: Dr. Jeffrey J. Lockman, Dept.
    Psychology, Tulane University, New Orleans, LA 70118. For further
    information, contact J. Lockman at
