  • Rehabilitation Engineering Post Doctoral Fellow

    located in WEST ORANGE, NJ currently has the following position
    available in support of its Rehabilitation Engineering Department and
    the Rehabilitation Engineering Analysis Laboratory (REAL).


    Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation
    (KMRREC), Rehabilitation Engineering Analysis Laboratory (REAL) is
    seeking a post-doctoral fellow who is interested in rehabilitation
    research using 3-D movement analysis with adult rehabilitation-related
    research in balance and postural control. Research training is
    individualized, multidisciplinary and emphasizes the actual conduct of
    research. To qualify you must have a Ph.D. with an academic background
    in kinesiology, biomechanics, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, or
    rehabilitation engineering.

    REAL Postural Control focuses on studies of static and dynamic balance.
    Instrumentation provides data collection for motion, EMG, and ground
    reaction force with motion and visual input control. For motion and
    muscle activity measurements the lab has a VICON-460 motion analysis
    system with six high- resolution M2-cameras and tethered MA-100 10
    channel EMG system from Motion Lab Systems. A NeuroCom Research Dynamic
    Platform system provides balance perturbations. The NeuroCom Research
    Dynamic Platform system is a programmable dynamic platform with two
    independent AMTI force-plates mounted on the moving stage. The platform
    can translate anterior-posterior and laterally, and can rotate to
    provide plantar-flexion or dorsi-flexion of the ankle. The system has
    the option to replicate current clinical balance evaluation protocols.
    Additional equipment includes: two portable AMTI AccuGait and other
    force platforms available for postural control evaluations

    KMRREC is located in West Orange, New Jersey, on the campus of the
    prestigious world-renowned Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation. KMRREC
    is part of the NIDRR model systems SCI centers. The KMRREC Post-doctoral
    program is closely affiliated with the University of Medicine and
    Dentistry of New Jersey with additional collaborations at New Jersey
    Institute of Technology and Rutgers University. An academic appointment
    in the department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the
    University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark is
    available for qualified candidates. KMRREC is a non-profit Medical
    Research Organization whose mission is to conduct cutting edge research
    and state-of-the-art education in medical science, KMRREC currently has
    a staff of approximately 60 dedicated research staff including several
    post-doctoral fellows funded by federal training grants and internal
