    We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a post-doctoral
    fellowship at the Biomechanics and Motion Analysis Laboratory in the
    Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at the University of
    Florida in Gainesville, Florida. The focus of the laboratory is the
    biomechanical analysis of human movement and joint biomechanics. Ongoing
    research includes joint kinematics and kinetics of knee and shoulder
    with osteoarthritis, the development of methods for biomechanical and
    optical detection of articular cartilage with OA, soft tissue balance
    and their contribution to knee OA, and the study of rotational laxity of
    the shoulder and shoulder injury in overhead throwing athletes.

    Requirements of the position include the completion of a PhD in
    biomedical engineering or a related field, proficiency in computer
    programming (MatLab, C++), excellent communication skills, and research
    experience in a field related to the ongoing work of the lab. The
    post-doctoral position is for one year and renewable to three years and
    funded by a clinical research grant from the Major League Baseball. The
    position is available from Jan. 1, 2007 and remains open until the
    appropriate candidate is chosen.

    The UF Biomechanics and Motion Analysis Lab has a motion lab (70
    ftx35ft) equipped with a 11-camera MAC real time motion capture system,
    two six-component force plates (AMTI), JR3 six-component load cell,
    eight channel Noraxon telemetry EMG system, a Data Translation data
    acquisition system. The implant testing lab (40 ftx20 ft) equipped with
    one bi-axial MTS system, one uni-axial MTS, and a custom made knee
    simulator to test joint contact and wear. The department also has an
    arthroscopy and surgical skills lab for education and research purpose.

    Interested candidates are kindly requested to send a recent copy of
    their curriculum vitae and three letters of reference to:
