    POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP
    RUNNING INJURY LAB
    UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE
    NEWARK, DE

    We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a post-doctoral position in the
    Running Injury Laboratory at the University of Delaware in Newark, DE beginning
    June 1, 2008. The laboratory research mission is aimed at understanding
    relationships between lower extremity mechanics and injury. Our current focus
    is on retraining faulty gait patterns in individuals at risk for stress fractures,
    patellofemoral pain syndrome and knee OA. We also have ongoing projects in
    the areas of imaging and modeling. Responsibilities include oversight of an NIH
    and a DOD project focused on the short and longterm effect of gait retraining in
    individuals at risk for stress fractures. The successful candidate will also be
    involved in mentorship of graduate students enrolled in the interdisciplinary
    Biomechanics and Movement Science program. A Motion analysis laboratory
    houses an 8 camera Vicon motion analysis system, 2 Bertec Force Platforms, 16
    channel Motion Lab EMG system, and a Quinton treadmill. In addition, we have
    an Instrumented Treadmill Lab that houses an AMTI instrumented treadmill and
    an 8 camera Vicon Motion Analysis System. In particular, we are looking for a
    bright, energetic individual with excellent interpersonal skills. Research
    experience in lower extremity mechanics, modelling and imaging is preferred.
    Newark, DE is a university town that is an hour from Baltimore and Philadelphia,
    and 2 hours from Washington DC, NY City, the mountains and the ocean.
