    POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN HUMAN MOVEMENT SCIENCE, NEUROSCIENCE,
    NEURO-REHABILITATION

    SENSORY MOTOR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM, REHABILITATION INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO
    DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL MEDICINE & REHABILITATION NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY

    A post-doctoral position has recently become available in the Reflex
    Movement and Spasticity Laboratory and the Neural Engineering Laboratory at
    the Sensory Motor Performance Program, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

    The successful candidate will participate in research experiments that
    examine the effects of physical and pharmacological interventions on
    neuromuscular properties and functional recovery in patients with
    neurological injuries, including spinal cord injury or stroke, with the goal
    of optimizing treatment.

    The Neural Engineering lab and the Reflex Movement and Spasticity lab are
    equipped with several novel devices, which enable us to study many different
    joints in human subjects. Using these labs, we can quantify reflexive and
    muscular properties, and investigate the effects of the interventions on
    multiple joints. The LOKOMAT is also used for robotic-assisted treadmill
    training.

    Opportunities exist to collaborative with engineering and neuroscience
    faculty in our group, who specialize in neuro-rehabilitation, robotics in
    rehabilitation, neuromuscular systems, motor control, learning, modeling,
    and systems engineering.

    Applicants should have a doctoral degree in human movement science,
    biomedical/mechanical/electrical engineering, neuroscience, physical
    therapy, kinesiology or a related discipline. Experience with the assessment
    of human movement, performance, function, or rehabilitation, biomechanical
    measurements, or motion analysis particularly in populations with spinal
    cord injury or stroke is highly desirable.

    The appointment can start immediately and will be available for at least two
    years. Salary is negotiable, and commensurate with experience.

    To apply, e-mail a cover letter with a statement of interests, a
    resume/curriculum vita, and the names of three individuals who can be
    contacted as references to:

    SENSORY MOTOR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM
    The Sensory Motor Performance Program (SMPP) at the Rehabilitation Institute
    of Chicago (RIC) is devoted to the study of musculoskeletal, neuromuscular,
    and sensory disorders that are associated with abnormal control of posture
    and movement. Faculty members have appointments in the Northwestern
    University Medical School and the Northwestern University Engineering
    School. Approximately eighty research staff - including post-doctoral
    research associates, graduate students, and support staff -- make up a
    unique team of physicians, engineers, mathematicians, physiologists, and
    occupational & physical therapists for the study of motor and sensory
    dysfunctions. For additional information see:
