    Post-doc in Biomechanics
    Biomechanics and Movement Science Program
    University of Delaware
    Newark Delaware

    We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a post-doctoral
    fellowship in the Motion Analysis Laboratory in the Dept. of Physical
    Therapy at the University of Delaware. The focus of the laboratory is
    the investigation of relationships between lower extremity structure,
    mechanics and injury. Ongoing research includes the study of the
    etiology of running-related injuries such as tibial stress fractures
    and anterior knee pain, interventions such foot orthoses and gait
    retraining, gender bias in ACL injuries, lower extremity joint coupling
    and MRI studies of the patellofemoral joint during weightbearing. For
    additional information on ongoing studies, please see website noted
    below. Responsibilities include coordination of an ongoing,
    prospective, biomechanical study of stress fractures. as well as
    oversight of other ongoing projects.

    Requirements of the position are completion of a PhD in biomechanics or
    a related field, proficiency in computer programming, excellent
    communication skills, and research experience in a field related to the
    ongoing work of the lab. Preference will be given to those with
    experience in modelling and stress fracture analysis. Salary will be
    commensurate with experience. Post-doc is for a period of one year
    with a possibility of extending to two. Start date is June 30, 2005.

    The Motion Analysis Laboratory is fully equipped with a 6-camera VICON
    real time motion system, 2 Bertec force plates, 16 channel Motion Labs
    EMG, accelerometers and treadmill. Funding for an instrumented
    treadmill was just received.

    Newark Delaware in a university town that is situated 1.5 hours from
    the beach and mountains, 1 hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore and 2
