    Postdoctoral Position in the Biomotion Laboratory at Stanford University

    A Postdoctoral Position in the Biomotion Laboratory at Stanford
    University is available immediately to study human musculoskeletal
    biomechanics. Studies involve healthy young adults, elderly, obese
    persons, ACL deficient patients, patients after meniscectomy, and
    patients with knee osteoarthritis and are supported by NIH and VA
    research grants. Strong collaborations exist with researchers and
    clinicians in Orthopaedic Surgery and Biochemistry at Stanford
    University and at the Center for Bone and Joint Rehabilitation at the VA
    Palo Alto Health Care System. The goal of our research is to identify
    mechanical and biological factors that are associated with the
    initiation and progression of knee osteoarthritis and to develop
    preventive and rehabilitation therapies for this degenerative joint
    disease. The qualified candidate will be involved in study design;
    project coordination; mentoring graduate and undergraduate students; in
    vivo patient testing (imaging, gait, blood work); data analysis; and
    preparation of manuscripts and presentation of research results.

    Qualifications: A Ph.D. or an equal degree is required. An engineering
    or equivalent background with experience in one or more of the following
    areas is preferred: analysis of human movement, functional biomechanics,
    analysis of joint mechanics or imaging,. Initial appointment is for two
    years with the possibility of extension if funds are available.
