    Albert Einstein Medical Center and the Moss
    Rehabilitation Research Institute seek a project
    director for a 2-year federally funded research
    project on overuse syndromes in post-polio
    survivors. This study will examine the hypothesis
    that focal weakness predisposes to overuse
    syndromes (i.e., pain and inflammation of soft
    tissues) related to the weakened muscles and/or
    those used in compensatory movement strategies.
    Additional projects will explore the efficacy of
    specific treatment interventions.

    The project director will work in collaboration
    with the 3 co-principal investigators (Dr. MaryAnn
    Keenan--orthopedics; Dr. Alberto Esquenazi--PM&R;
    and Dr. John Whyte--PM&R) to direct a $933,000
    project that will study individuals with post-
    polio syndrome longitudinally over a 1.5 year
    period. The position of project director is full
    time and will supervise staff including physical
    therapist/PT aide, physician's assistant, nurse,
    research fellow, and data entry, clerical, and
    data analysis personnel. The opportunity exists to
    develop independent research directions in
    mobility rehabilitation and become a permanent
    faculty member of the Moss Rehabilitation Research

    The appropriate candidate will have a doctoral
    degree in kinesiology or a related field,
    experience in managing a multi-person research
    effort, and skills in research design, data
    analysis, and writing. The project is scheduled to
    begin 3/1/96.

    Interested candidates should forward a resume and
    cover letter to:

    John Whyte, M.D., Ph.D.
