    Doctoral / Postdoctoral Research Position
    at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for Fall 2009

    The Hand Neuromechanics Lab in the Department of Industrial Engineering at
    the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is seeking motivated graduate
    students/postdoctoral fellows to pursue research in the field of
    biomechanics and neurorehabilitation.

    Ideal applicants should have a degree in mechanical/industrial/biomedical
    engineering, kinesiology, neuroscience, or a related discipline. Research
    experience with motion analysis, force transducers, EMG, musculoskeletal
    modeling, statistical analysis software, and programming (MATLAB, LabView)
    is desirable. Experience with human subjects is a plus.

    The lab’s specific research interests include:

    1. Understand neurophysiologic and biomechanical mechanisms for poor hand
    function following aging or neurologic disorders such as stroke.

    2. Employ ergonomic design and develop rehabilitative interventions and
    assistive devices to improve the quality of life for persons with
    sensorimotor impairment.

    We will be working collaboratively with investigators in diverse backgrounds
    including engineers, kinesiologists, neuroscientists, therapists, and

    Interested individuals should immediately email a curriculum vita and a
    letter detailing the applicant's research interest to:

    The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is Wisconsin's premier urban
    research university, located in the cultural and economic heart of the
    state. UWM is one of two doctoral degree-granting institutions in the
    University of Wisconsin System. With a student body of more than 29,000,
    UWM is Wisconsin's second largest university and increasingly the first
    choice university for individuals seeking access to success.

    With extramural funding increasing more than 25 percent over the last five
    years and new campus initiatives spurring further growth, the profile of UWM
    research is rising. UWM researchers are overcoming global challenges as
    well as solving local problems, and talented graduate students form the
    foundation of the campus research enterprise.

    The recent magazine describes vibrant activities in the College of
    Engineering and Applied Science:

    The UW-Milwaukee campus is just blocks from beautiful Lake Michigan, and
    less than four miles from downtown Milwaukee. It is considered one of the
    safest campuses in Wisconsin. Several Milwaukee County Transit System bus
    routes provide the campus with easy access to public transportation in
    Milwaukee. UWM lies at the center of a lively mix of diverse neighborhoods,
    sports, recreation, performing arts, shops, restaurants, and nightspots.
