A post-doctoral / sabbatical research position is being announced, subject
to approved funding, at the Biomechanics and Motor Control Laboratory, in
the Departments of Neuroscience and Human Biology at the Karolinska
Institute and University College of Physical Education and Sports for the
period 1st July 1997 to 30th June 1998, or part thereof.

The research position is to be primarily within the field of human balance
control and/or neuromuscular fatigue, however, other options may be

and intra-muscular), force analysis (mounted force platforms) and equipment
for provoking disturbances in standing balance and for strength
measurement. Financing of the above position will be applied for from the
Swedish Central Federation for Sports Promotion. The federation is
celebrating its 100th year and has allocated approximately $42,000 US for
