    Motor Control Postdoctoral Fellow (2 years)
    Start Date: September 1, 1995

    I seek a postdoctoral fellow for an NSF funded study on the learning of
    coordination during complex multijoint voluntary actions. I use computer
    simulation and empirical methods to address phenomena and mechanisms that
    underlie the learning of coordination between balance, posture and
    voluntary task goals during multijoint pulls made by freely-standing
    humans. Two new, large movement analysis laboratories are available with
    full computerized capabilities for collecting and analyzing biomechanical
    and EMG data (force plates, motion analysis, load cells).

    Applicants must have completed their Ph.D. in motor systems neuroscience,
    engineering, kinesiology or a related discipline. Knowledge of
    biomechanics (including modeling), systems analysis, nonlinear dynamics, or
    statistics are highly desirable. Good written communication skills would
    be a strong plus. Opportunities exist for participating in seminars and
    courses offered through the Institute for Neuroscience, Programs in Medical
    Biomechanics, Physiology, Programs in Physical Therapy, and other
    departments. Please send a letter of application (including career goals),
    vita and the names, addresses and phone numbers of two references to Wynne
