    FULL-TIME Post-Doctoral Position

    Dear Readers,

    The National Rehabilitation Hospital's Assistive Technology/ Rehabilitation
    Engineering Program has a full-time Post-Doctoral position available for a
    qualified person interested in exploring promising technologies that can be
    transferred from military and space agencies to civilian use that will
    benefit persons with disabilities.

    The Assistive Technology Research Center (ATRC) at NRH is the result of a
    four-year grant from the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materials Command of
    which two years funding remain. The primary goal of the ATRC is to identify
    promising military and aerospace technologies that may have application to
    rehabilitation medicine and improve the lives of persons with disabilities,
    and to perform research that will help facilitate the transfer of that
    technology into the private sector.

    Current ATRC projects include: 1) quantification of 3D human movement, in
    particular gait and balance, 2) applications of virtual reality in
    rehabilitation medicine, 3) biomechanical analyses of orthoses, 4)
    development of a portable evaluation system, 5) development and application
    of new biomechanical sensors, and 6) development of new designs of orthosis
    for different patient populations. In addition, the post-docotral candidate
    will also have to the opportunity to explore, initiate and develop other
    research projects for the ATRC.

    Qualifications include a PhD degree in bioengineering, mechanical,
    biomedical, or electrical enigneering. Two or more years of experience in
    applications of rehabilitation technology preferred. The applicant should
    also have research experience and will be expected to assist in producing
    and submitting research articles for publication; assist in preparing and
    presenting scientific papers at conferences; and assist in developing grants
    for possible external funding. Salary commensurate with qualifications and
