  • Postdoctoral Position in Geriatric Biomechanics


    Biomechanics Research Laboratory
    Department of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics
    University of Michigan

    A Post-Doctoral Scholar is sought to conduct research in geriatric
    biomechanics with emphasis on studies of falls and mobility impairments
    among healthy and frail old adults. The Laboratory has the space,
    equipment, support staff and experience to foster research in these areas.
    The Laboratory cooperates in geriatric biomechanics research with the
    University's Division of Geriatric Medicine, Institute of Gerontology,
    Neuropsychology Program, Bioengineering Program and other University units.

    Applicants must hold a recent PhD in engineering or in a closely related
    field. Desirable additional qualifications include graduate-level training in
    and/or laboratory experience with dynamics, control systems and
    instrumentation. Familiarity with digital data acquisition and processing,
    computer simulation and optimization and writing of scientific journal
    articles and proposals would also be desirable.

    The initial appointment will be for 12 months at full-time, at an annual
    salary of approximately $30,000. This appointment may be renewable
    if mutually agreeable to the applicant and the Laboratory, and if
    Laboratory funding permits renewal.

    Preference may be given to applicants who are US citizens or permanent
    residents, since the University's Institute of Gerontology may be able
    to partially fund those applicants through a Training Grant from the
    National Institute on Aging.

    We hope to fill this position by May 15, 1995, but will consider all
    applications until the position is filled.

    Please submit applications, biographic and other supporting materials to
