    Dear fellow biomech-l users:

    Full-time Research Rehabilitation Engineer
    Assistive Technology Research

    The National Rehabilitation Hospital's Assistive Technology/Rehabilitation
    Engineering Program has a full-time research rehabilitation engineer position
    available for a qualified person interested in exploring promising
    technologies that can be transferred from the military to civilian use that
    will benefit persons with disabilities.

    The engineer will conduct research at the Assistive Technology Research Center
    (ATRC) located at NRH. This newly created Center is the result of a four year
    grant from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materials Command. The primary
    goal of the ATRC is to identify promising military and aerospace technologies
    that may have application to rehabilitation medicine, as well as the everyday
    lives of persons with disabilities, and to perform research that will help
    facilitate the transfer of that technology into the private sector.

    Candidates should have a background in rehabilitation engineering and will be
    expected to assist in producing and submitting research articles for
    publication; assist in preparing and presenting scientific or technical
    papers at conferences; and assist in developing grants for possible external
    funding. These objectives will be achieved with the assistance of the
    engineer's supervisor, project staff, and the facilities and resources
    available to NRH and CUA.

    Engineering, National Rehabilitation Hospital, 102 Irving Street, NW,
    Washington, D.C., 20010, (202) 877-1498. or Tom Dang, Manager, Perf. Diag.
