  • Post-doctoral fellow position

    A post-doctoral research associate position is available
    immediately in the Motion Analysis Laboratory, Physical
    Therapy Department at the University of Delaware.

    This position is funded by a multi-investigator NIH Project
    Grant (R01) entitled "FES and Biomechanics: Treating
    Movement Disorders". This research involves the development
    of a novel rehabilitation system for retraining walking
    ability in patients who have suffered a stroke. The
    project incorporates the use of FES, robotics and motor
    learning approaches to address this problem. Opportunities
    to develop complementary lines of research as well as to
    participate in related investigations of the motor
    dysfunction of stroke are also available.

    Position Requirements: Recent PhD in the area of human
    motor control with a strong biomechanics component.
    Candidates who are physical therapists and/or who have had
    experience evaluating with patients with neurological
    disorders will be given highest preference. The candidate
    should have demonstrated scholarly progress, including the
    preparation, submission and publication of manuscripts,
    and presentations at scientific conferences.

    Desired skills include: Experience with collection and
    analysis of human movement data, EMG collection and data
    analysis, experience with psychophysical experimentation;
    Experience with computer programming is a plus: We use
    Matlab, Labview and Visual3D rigid body software.

    Responsibilities: Coordination of patient scheduling and
    data collections; supervising doctoral student involved
    in project; participation with engineers in the design of
    the patient interface with robotic devices; consultation
    on the development and piloting of software to provide
    patient performance feedback; participation in further
    development and implementation of training protocols.
