    A post-doc position is available at the Motor Control Lab, Dep. of
    Kinsiology, K. U. Leuven, Belgium. The applicant is expected to collaborate
    on various projects that center around the study of the control and learning
    of patterns of interlimb coordination with a specific emphasis on bimanual
    and upper/lower limb coordination. In addition, the focus is on the study of
    normal subjects of various age categories as well as on patients suffering
    from motor disorders, such as Parkinson's disease and CVA. With respect to
    the study of Parkinson's disease, collaboration has been set up with the
    Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery of the Faculty of Medicine with the
    aim to study the changes in motor control as a result of unilateral pallidal
    stimulation. The project is focused upon the detailed characterization of
    coordination deficits in the affected and unaffected side, following a
    unilateral cerebro-vascular accident. This project is conducted in
    collaboration with the University Hospital in Pellenberg, Belgium.
    Control and learning issues are addressed from a multidisciplinary
    perspective including biomechanics and kinesiology, experimental psychology
    and the behavioral neurosciences. Applicants with an interest in one or a
    combination of these areas who can demonstrate evidence of their capability
    to publish in high-quality journals pertaining to motor control are
    encouraged to apply.
    A letter of application, curriculum vitae, copies of academic
    transcripts and recent publications should be mailed before january 25 (1998)
    to Prof. Dr. S. P. Swinnen at the address below. Salary is negotiable within
    certain limits.
