  • Post-doctoral position (Toronto, Canada)


    A post-doctoral position is available at the Centre for Studies
    in Aging, located at Sunnybrook Health Science Centre (University
    of Toronto). The area of research will involve studies of human
    postural control, with the underlying objective of understanding
    the causes of falls in the elderly and developing novel
    approaches for preventing falls and related injuries.

    A strong background in the study of human movement control is
    needed. Previous experience in studying postural control would
    be a definite asset. Candidates who do not have any relevant
    publications in peer-reviewed journals will not be considered.
    Successful applicants will likely have trained in one or more of
    the following areas: biomechanics, bioengineering, kinesiology
    and/or motor control.

    We offer access to state-of-the-art balance laboratory facilities
    and interaction with scientists and clinicians within a
    stimulating, multi-disciplinary environment. Funding will be
    guaranteed for at least one year, at the current MRC (Medical
    Research Council) rate for post-doctoral fellows. During the
    first year, the applicant would be expected to apply for funding
    from the Sunnybrook Trust and from at least one external agency.
    The position is available immediately, although the starting date
    can be negotiated.

    To apply, please send your curriculum vitae by FAX or e-mail
    (ASCII text files only, please). After an initial screening,
    selected applicants will also be asked to provide university
    transcripts, letters of reference, and a representative sample of
    their publications (reprints or preprints).
