  • Post-Doc and Graduate Study Positions at UT Austin

    Post-Doctoral or Pre-Doctoral Study in Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin:

    The Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab anticipates having two funded positions
    available for Summer / Fall 2008 to study the biomechanics and motor
    control of human movement. One position will be for a Post-Doc and
    the other for a Ph.D. student. The specific projects will involve
    applying advanced computational modeling and experimental approaches
    to examine how movement coordination and dynamic stability are
    regulated during human walking. This project will have applications
    to understanding the basic neural and mechanical mechanisms which
    govern the control of walking and to understanding the root causes of falling.

    Prior experience with computational modeling of human movement and/or
    analysis of biomechanical data (e.g., gait analysis) is strongly desired.

    If you are interested in either position, please e-mail a letter of
    interest, a detailed CV (with the list of publications), and three
    names of colleagues who can be contacted for references to Jonathan
    Dingwell . For students interested in the
    Pre-Doctoral (i.e., Ph.D.) position, please also send GRE and TOEFL
    scores (if applicable).

    Applications for Fall 2008 admissions are now being accepted in the
    Kinesiology Department. Applications should be received as soon as
    possible, but preferably no later than Feb. 15. Full detailed
    descriptions of the departmental admissions criteria and application
    procedures can be found at:
