    Doctoral/Postdoctoral Research Position
    at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for Fall 2010

    The Hand and Upper Extremity Rehabilitation Laboratory at the Center for
    Ergonomics, College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and College of
    Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is seeking a
    highly motivated graduate student/postdoctoral fellow to pursue research
    in the field of biomechanics and neurorehabilitation.

    The Center for Ergonomics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is a
    new state-of-the-art facility, which houses 8,000 square feet of
    multi-disciplinary research laboratories. The facility operates under
    the supervision of five faculty members and works on a wide array of
    government-funded and private industry projects. The facility includes a
    gait analysis laboratory, tribology laboratory, imaging and materials
    laboratory, a spine biomechanics laboratory, a general ergonomics
    laboratory, and the hand rehabilitation laboratory.

    Ideal applicants should have a degree in biomedical, mechanical,
    industrial engineering, kinesiology, neuroscience, or a related
    discipline. Research experience with human subjects, motion analysis,
    force transducers, EMG, musculoskeletal modeling, statistical analysis
    software, and programming (MATLAB, LabView) is a plus.

    The lab’s specific research interests include:
    1. Understand neurophysiologic and biomechanical mechanisms for poor
    hand function following aging or neurologic disorders such as stroke.
    2. Develop rehabilitative interventions and employ ergonomic design to
    improve the quality of life for persons with sensorimotor impairment.

    We will be working collaboratively with investigators in diverse
    backgrounds including engineers, kinesiologists, neuroscientists,
    therapists, and physicians.

    Interested individuals should immediately email a curriculum vita and a
    letter detailing the applicant's research interest to:

    Na Jin Seo, PhD
    Assistant Professor
    Department of Industrial Engineering
    University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
