    POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOMECHANICS

    Applications are now being accepted for a post-doctoral position in
    biomechanics at the U.S. Army Institute of Environmental Medicine
    (USARIEM), located in Natick, MA. The mission of USARIEM is to conduct
    biomedical research to improve & sustain Warfighter performance & health
    under all conditions (www.usariem.army.mil). With overuse injury rates
    increasing both in Basic Combat training and during deployment, the
    ideal candidate will conduct research on the biomechanics of overuse
    injury in the lower extremity and low back. Positions will be awarded
    for 1 year, renewable up to 3 years, and will be funded either through
    the National Research Council or through the Oak Ridge Institute for
    Science and Education (ORISE)
    (http://orise.orau.gov/science-education/default.aspx).

    USARIEM BIOMECHANICS: The Center for Military Biomechanics Research is
    a 120' x 50' state of the art biomechanics laboratory located at
    USARIEM. The Center houses two 3D motion capture and analysis systems
    (Qualysis Motion Capture System), in-ground and portable force platforms
    (AMTI), two force-sensing treadmills (AMTI), 2 EMG systems (DelSys),
    digital video capture and processing capabilities (DartFish), and a
    variety of facilities to quantify and assess human performance. Five
    doctorally qualified, credentialed investigators and a dedicated
    technical staff man the CMBR and collaborate with experts in Physiology,
    Nutrition, Occupational and Physical Therapy, Biomedical Modeling, and
    Engineering.

    QUALIFICATIONS: Applicants must hold Ph.D. or equivalent degree for
    less than five years and must be U.S. citizens. The successful candidate
    will have demonstrated the ability to perform productive research in the
    area of biomechanics and musculoskeletal injury. Excellent written and
    oral communication skills are also required, as well as the ability to
    collaborate with other investigators.
