    Two-year Postdoctoral Position Studying Animal Locomotion

    The Department of Biological Sciences at Mount Holyoke College is
    looking for an aspiring scholar-teacher for a 2-year postdoctoral
    position to study the biomechanics of animal locomotion.

    Sponsored by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the postdoctoral
    scholar will be encouraged to integrate cutting-edge research with
    high-quality undergraduate teaching. Side-by-side with a faculty
    mentor, the postdoc will help develop several interdisciplinary
    laboratory experiments for use in physics and biology courses and will
    help team-teach during one semester each year in the biology or physics
    department. The postdoctoral scholar will join the lab of Gary Gillis,
    who studies the biology of animal locomotion. She or he will use a
    variety of techniques, including electromyography, sonomicrometry,
    kinematic and kinetic analyses to explore the functional morphology of
    the anuran forelimb, particularly in relation to jumping and landing.
    Other projects of interest to the applicant will also be encouraged.

    Mount Holyoke College is a highly selective liberal arts college for
    women in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, two hours from
    Boston and three hours from New York City. Mount Holyoke is a member of
    a 5-College Consortium along with Smith, Hampshire, and Amherst Colleges
    and the University of Massachusetts, providing a vibrant community of
    scientists and local access to advanced instrumentation and facilities.

    The qualified applicant will have completed a Ph.D. in biology,
    biomechanics or a related discipline by July 1, 2010. She or he will
    have experience in studying human or animal biomechanics/functional
    morphology, and previous experience in anuran biology or any of the
    techniques mentioned above is a plus. To apply, please send your
    curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests,
    transcripts, and arrange to send two letters of recommendation to
    Professor Gary Gillis, Department of Biology, Mount Holyoke College,
    South Hadley MA 01075 (or by March 1, 2010.
