    Title: Post Doc in Clinical Gait and Movement Analysis
    Location: University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
    Date: October 18, 2005


    Clinical Gait and Movement Analysis Laboratory,
    Department of Physical Therapy,
    University of Illinois at Chicago

    A post-doctoral position has recently become available
    in the Clinical Gait and
    Movement Analysis Laboratory of Clive Y.-C. Pai, PhD,
    at Department of Physical
    Therapy, University of Illinois at Chicago. The
    successful candidates will participate
    in extramurally funded research that determines
    dynamic stability against slip-related
    perturbation during walking and the underlying
    mechanisms for adaptive strategies,
    using advanced engineering techniques and computer
    model simulations.

    Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative
    research with engineering and
    neuroscience faculty who specialize in motor control,
    motor learning, orthopedic
    biomechanics, modeling, and automatic control

    Applicants should have a doctoral degree in biomedical
    engineering, biomechanics,
    electrical or mechanical engineering, kinesiology,
    neuroscience or a related discipline.
    A record of research in experimental design, analysis
    of multi-segment human
    movement, laboratory experience with biomechanical
    electromyography, and motion analysis is useful.
    Experience in Motion Analysis
    Realtime, AMTI force plates, surface EMG, Matlab,
    Labview, and visual C++ is
    necessary. The abilities to work independently, solve
    problems, and pay attention to
    detail are also essential skills.

    Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with

    To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a
    statement of interests and a short-term
