  • UNIV NEBRASKA Post Doctoral Research – Sport Biomechanics

    Athletic Department

    University of Nebraska – Lincoln
    As a well-established pioneer in human performance training, Nebraska Athletics is once again leading the nation through the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory (NAPL). The NAPL builds upon a strong partnership between athletics and academics to enhance the human performance, safety, health, and long-term well-being of student athletes. The NAPL’s dedicated inter-professional research team leverages the clinical expertise of Nebraska Athletics’ well-established athletic medicine, strength and conditioning, sports nutrition, and psychology teams with relationships established with researchers and industry partners from across the country to advance the art and science of human performance. Cutting-edge technology for studying human performance – including fully instrumented biomechanics, endocrinology, exercise physiology, psychophysiology, and sports nutrition laboratories – are just part of the 24,000 square foot research facility which is located adjacent to the athletic facilities housing Nebraska’s 24 athletic teams. The NAPL capitalizes on well-established relationships with researchers within the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln (UNL). The NAPL is seeking applications from dynamic, team-oriented, individuals for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate – Sports Biomechanics.
