  • Career Opportunity for Engineer in Clinical Movement Analysis

    Dear BIOMCH-L subscribers:

    The Motion Analysis Laboratory of Shriners Hospitals for Children
    Northern California has a full-time opening for a Ph.D. level
    engineer, to begin in March of 1998. This established gait
    laboratory provides measurement and analysis services in support of
    patient care and has great potential for clinical research, both
    locally and in cooperation with motion analysis laboratories in nine
    other Shriners Hospitals. Walking problems are the main focus of
    attention, with additional interest in sitting stability, detailed
    hand and foot movements, wheelchair propulsion and physical
    activities for recreation.

    Shriners Hospitals for Children Northern California is the newest,
    largest and most diversified of the twenty-one hospitals and burns
    institutes that comprise the Shriners Hospitals for Children system.
    The Hospital, located in Sacramento adjacent to the University of
    California at Davis Medical Center, provides free care to patients
    with orthopaedic disabilities, spinal cord injuries and burns.

    This position provides an exceptional career opportunity for an
    innovative, team-oriented individual experienced in both the
    technical and patient-centered aspects of biomechanical measurement
    and analysis. The successful candidate will provide scientific
    leadership and hands-on technical support for the clinical operation
    of the Motion Analysis Laboratory as part of a multidisciplinary
    team that includes an orthopaedist, a kinesiologist, a physical
    therapist and a laboratory services manager.

    Applicants should have a doctoral degree in biomechanics,
    engineering, or other field related to musculoskeletal research,
    along with a record of success in obtaining and managing grants in
    support of clinically oriented research. Opportunities for academic
    affiliation exist at the University of California campus in Davis
    (about eighteen miles away), at the University of California Davis
    Medical Center (right across the street), and at California State
    University, Sacramento (about three miles away).
