    Position for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Motor Control
    at the Pennsylvania State University, Department of Kinesiology

    Project Supervisor: Dagmar Sternad

    We are currently seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our
    studies on motor control. Our research focus is on the structure of
    variability and the role of stability in the acquisition and
    performance of skilled actions. The experimental work is conducted in
    a virtual environment. The postdoctoral fellow should have a
    background and expertise in at least one of the following fields:
    motor control and learning, biomechanics, experimental psychology,
    nonlinear dynamics and modeling. Experience with computers and
    programming (Matlab) is expected.

    Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Kinesiology, Experimental
    Psychology, or Physical and Engineering Sciences, with an academic
    record of scientific excellence, independent research, and a strong
    interest in an interdisciplinary approach to motor control. The
    applicant is expected to get involved in existing research projects
    but is also encouraged to bring to bear his/her expertise into the
    research project.

    The Department of Kinesiology at the Pennsylvania State University
    has a strong focus on motor control and biomechanics with many
    faculty members working on related issues. This provides a
    stimulating environment for collaborations and interdisciplinary
    research. The position will be supported by a NIH grant.

    Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, list of publications, and
    two contact persons for letters of recommendation.
