    (MS/PhD STUDENTSHIPS) AND GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIP POSITIONS AVAILABLE FALL
    2010
    Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility - UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA AT OMAHA

    The Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility at the University of Nebraska at
    Omaha (http://biomech.unomaha.edu/) has several positions available to
    pursue an MS/PhD degree for the Fall of 2010. The Nebraska Biomechanics
    Core Facility was established for the purpose of developing a new
    understanding of the dynamical aspects of human movement. The laboratory
    is a flourishing enterprise where engineers, scientists and clinicians get
    together to gain additional insights on healthy and abnormal movement
    patterns. The laboratory uses techniques from biology, engineering and
    mathematics to understand the human movement variability. Research
    projects in the lab range from analysis of infant postural development to
    efficacy of robotic surgery. Please be aware, the deadline for application
    to Graduate Studies Programs for the fall semester is April 1st for
    international students and June 1st for US applicants.
    DEGREES OFFERED: The two degrees offered are MS and PhD.
    RESPONSIBILITIES: There is a variety of graduate assistantship positions
    available for research assignments. Duties include subject recruitment,
    data collection and processing for research and laboratory maintenance.
    Research projects can range from state and federally funded projects to
    academic research pursuits.
    PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: B.S. or M.S. in Motor Control, Psychology,
    Exercise Science, Biology, Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering or related
    field. Experiences with computer programming (MatLab, LabView, C++),
    biomechanics data collection and professional writing skills are
    preferred.
    SETTING : The Nebraska Biomechanics Core Facility is located at the
    University of Nebraska at Omaha campus that is in the heart of the Omaha
    metropolitan area. It is housed in the state of the art Health, Physical
    Education and Recreation instructional facility and includes four high
    speed motion capture systems (Motion Analysis Co., Motion Engineering,
    Vicon-Peak and Northern Digital), multiple force platforms, Delsys
    wireless EMG systems, two Biodex dynamometers, a split-belt treadmill
    (Bertec Co.), a virtual reality simulation environment, two body weight
    support systems (LiteGait, Mobility Research, LLC), an F-scan system
    (Tekscan, Inc), an instrumented staircase, an INMOTION2 robot for
    upper-extremity rehabilitation (Interactive Motion Technology, Inc.) and
    numerous networking computers. We also have an entire data collection
    station with a virtual reality environment in our Medical Center
    specifically dedicated to Robotic Surgery. Our laboratory has strong ties
    with clinicians from the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Omaha
    Veteran Affairs Medical Center, the Creighton University Medical Center,
    and the Peter Kiewit Institute. These strong relationships and the close
    proximity of these facilities provide the laboratory with immediate access
    to patients with neuromuscular disorders, clinicians in various domains,
    and engineers. Omaha is a dynamic metropolitan area of 700,000 people and
    has been rated as one of the best environments for living in the nation.
    Forbes Magazine recently named Omaha as one of the top 15 regions in the
    nation – after analyzing both economic and quality of life factors. Omaha
    is also one of the top "eco-cities" in the nation based on air and water
    quality, open space and population stability according to "E" The
    Environmental Magazine. The city landscape is a blend of restored office
    buildings, boutiques, historic preservation sites, shopping malls, parks,
    and running/bike paths. The Old Market area is a popular destination for
    residents of Omaha and tourists. This neighborhood features shopping, art
    galleries, live entertainment and eclectic restaurants that are situated
    along the river. Each June Omaha hosts one of the top National Collegiate
    Athletic Association events - the NCAA College World Series. Fans from
    across the country come to Omaha to watch the winners of eight regional
    tournaments battle for the NCAA men's baseball championship.
