  • Post-Doctoral Study Position: Austin / San Antonio, TX

    Post-Doctoral Study at U. Texas Austin & Brooke Army Medical Center,
    San Antonio, TX

    The Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab at UT Austin and the Military
    Performance Lab at the Center for the Intrepid / Brooke Army Medical
    Center (CFI/BAMC) in San Antonio, TX has one NIH-funded position
    available for early Spring 2010 (start date negotiable, but as soon
    as available) to study balance and stability control mechanisms in
    individuals with lower limb amputation. This position is for a
    Post-Doctoral Research Associate. The specific project involves
    applying advanced virtual reality interventions and computational
    data analysis approaches to determine how patients respond to
    specific challenges to their dynamic stability (i.e. different
    perturbations) while walking. This project has implications for
    understanding the basic neural and mechanical mechanisms that govern
    the control of walking and also has direct clinical applications to
    developing advanced VR interventions to help improve walking ability
    in these patients.

    The majority of the work will be performed at the state of the art
    facilities at the Center for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical
    Center in San Antonio, TX, about one hour's drive south of Austin.

    More information about the Nonlinear Biodynamics Lab and the kinds of
    research we do can be found on our web pages:

    A Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, or closely
    related field is required. Prior experience with virtual reality
    based rehabilitation, computational biomechanics and/or analysis of
    biomechanical data (e.g., gait analysis) is strongly desired. Solid
    computer programming skills (e.g., Matlab, C++, etc.) are essential.

    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 . Review
    of applications will begin immediately. Please submit full
    applications no later than February 1, 2010. If for any reason you
    feel you need additional time, please contact me.
