    Date: September 21, 2007

    The Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Calgary
    ( has a Post-Doc position available immediately for
    the Fall of 2007. The successful candidate will primarily work on industry
    funded projects related to footwear and other sport equipment. Although

    involved in the study.

    related field. Priority will be given to applicants with experience in
    research of sport equipment and a working knowledge of CAD and/or FEM.

    Health and Wellness Research at the University of Calgary. It houses about
    180 scientists and trainees, and has an operating annual budget of
    approximately $9.4 Million. The HPL has an outstanding infrastructure,
