    POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN HUMAN MOVEMENT SCIENCE, NEURO-REHABILITATION,
    NEUROSCIENCE
    SENSORY MOTOR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM, REHABILITATION INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO
    PHYSICAL MEDICINE & REHABILITATION DEPARTMENT, NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY

    A post-doctoral position has recently become available in the Reflex,
    Movement and Spasticity Laboratory at the Sensory Motor Performance Program,
    Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. This lab is well equipped with several
    novel devices, which enables us to easily study ankle, knee, hip, elbow, and
    shoulder muscles in human subjects. Using this lab, we are capable of
    quantifying neuromuscular properties, and investigating the effects of the
    interventions on multiple joints. The Lokomat is used for robotic-assisted
    treadmill training.

    The successful candidate will participate in research experiments that
    examine the effects of physical and pharmacological interventions on
    neuromuscular properties and functional recovery in patients with incomplete
    spinal cord injury or stroke, with the goal of optimizing treatment.

    Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
    and neuroscience faculty who specialize in neuro-rehabilitation, robotics in
    rehabilitation, neuromuscular systems, motor control, learning, modeling,
    and systems engineering.

    Applicants should have a doctoral degree in physical therapy, human movement
    science, neuroscience, kinesiology or a related discipline. Experience with
    the assessment of human movement, performance, function, or rehabilitation,
    biomechanical measurements, or motion analysis particularly in populations
    with spinal cord injury or stroke is highly desirable.

    The appointment can start immediately and will be available for at least two
    years. Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.

    To apply, fax or e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests, a
    resume/curriculum vita, and the names of three individuals who can be
    contacted as references to:

    SENSORY MOTOR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
    The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation Institute
    of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular,
    and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal control of posture
    and movement. Faculty members have appointments in the Northwestern
    University Medical School and the Northwestern University Engineering
    School. Approximately eighty research staff - including post-doctoral
    research associates, graduate students, and support staff -- make up a
    unique team of physicians, engineers, mathematicians, physiologists, and
    occupational & physical therapists for the study of motor and sensory
    dysfunctions. For additional information see:
