    Post-doctoral Position Available:
    Control of Posture and Movement
    Using Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation
    __________________________________________________ ____

    Location: Neural Control Laboratory
    Center for Biomedical Engineering
    University of Kentucky
    Lexington, KY 40506-0070

    Lab Director: James J. Abbas, Ph.D.

    Research area:
    Design/evaluation of adaptive controllers for
    Functional Neuromuscular Stimulation (FNS) systems:
    computer simulation studies
    experiments on human subjects

    Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering or related field

    Research in the Neural Control Laboratory is directed at the design and
    evaluation of FNS systems to restore control of posture and movement to
    individuals with neuromotor disorders such as spinal cord injury. The
    Neural Control Laboratory is equipped with facilities for computer
    simulation and experimental studies. The Laboratory is currently
    involved in research projects funded by The National Institutes of
    Health , The Whitaker Foundation, The Kentucky Spinal Cord & Head Injury
    Trust and The University of Kentucky.

    The post-doctoral scholar will work with Dr. Abbas and the research team
    to develop and evaluate adaptive control schemes for use with FNS
    systems. This work addresses the need to customize stimulation patterns
    for individual users as well as to adjust stimulation to account for
    fatigue. The research work will utilize computer simulation studies as
    well as experiments on human subjects. Applicants should have research
    interests and skills in the areas of rehabilitation engineering, neural
    systems, adaptive control systems, neural networks and/or biomechanics.
