  • Post-Doctoral 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 (R01) position
    available immediately (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 (CFI) at Brooke Army Medical
    Center in San Antonio, TX, about one hour's drive south of Austin. CFI
    is a truly unique, world-class state-of-the art facility focused on
    research and rehabilitation of injured service members. More info
    about the CFI can be found at:

    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 complete detailed CV, and names
    of three professional colleagues who can be contacted for references
    to Jonathan Dingwell . Review of
    applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is
    filled.

    Please feel free to contact me directly if you have questions.
