    Postdoctoral Researcher Position Available

    Movement and Neurosciences Center, Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital

    The Movement and Neurosciences Sciences Center seeks postdoctoral candidates to work in a state-of-the-art research laboratory dedicated to improving the performance, quality of life and safety of individuals recovering from brain injuries, strokes, spinal cord injuries and other neurologic and orthopedic conditions. The postdoctoral researcher will join a highly interactive multidisciplinary team that is developing and assessing new technology and treatment approaches to maximize the independence, quality of life and outcomes of individuals with physical disabilities. The multiple research studies underway in the Institute are funded through federal agencies, as well as national and local foundations. Responsibilities will include collaborative data analysis, manuscript and grant writing, scientific presentations, and mentoring research interns. Technology in the laboratory includes a 12-camera infrared motion analysis system, four AMTI force plates, a 16-channel and 10 channel fine wire and surface EMG system, Pedar plantar pressure mapping hardware and software, a GAITRite instrumented walkway, a metabolic cart and an isokinetic dynamometer.

    Setting: The Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering is located within Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, NE. Madonna is one of the largest free standing independent rehabilitation hospitals in the U.S. It provides a full continuum of services including inpatient rehabilitation, a long-term acute care hospital, multiple outpatient clinics, and a 56,000 square foot health and wellness facility.

    Re: Postdoctoral Researcher, Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital, Lincoln, NE, USA

    Respected Dr. Judith M. Burnfield,

    I am Jaydip Desai, looking for a postdoctoral position in the field of rehabilitation engineering where I can use my neuro-anatomy, biomedical instrumentation, robotics & control experience to design & develop new technology and treatment approaches to improve quality of life for physically disable person.

    I have completed my doctoral degree in biomedical engineering with specialized study in robotics & control from mechanical engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology. I have seen job opening on, and interested to get more information about it.

    I would like to know whether the position is still open or not.If it's open then what are the required documents for this position?

    Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
