  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship @ the U. of Colorado: Exercise + Muscle Imaging

    Post-Doctoral Fellow: Rehabilitation Sciences Program at the U. of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
    The Muscle Morphology, Mechanics, and Performance Laboratory (3MAP Lab) group is conducting VA-funded clinical research concerning the assessment and treatment of age-related muscle dysfunction, and the impact of poor muscle health on older adults. Specific lines of investigation will include: 1) image processing techniques for sonographic estimates of muscle quality; 2) the assessment of functional performance and anaerobic capacity in older adults; 3) velocity-based eccentric overload exercise interventions for older adults and those with chronic conditions. This work will be conducted in collaboration with the CU Bioengineering Department, CU Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes, and the CU Division of Geriatrics.

    The post-doctoral fellow will support 3MAP Lab sarcopenia and exercise studies at the Anschutz Medical Campus and our VA medical center affiliate. The selected candidate will be involved in transdisciplinary research activities that incorporate anaerobic exercise programs, rehabilitative diagnostic imaging, tissue and body composition analysis, clinical assessment, and data management/analysis. Candidates with experience in human movement analysis (e.g., Kinesiology, Biomedical Engineering, Biomechanics, Muscle Physiology) and/or clinical experience (e.g., Physical Therapy) are strongly encouraged to apply.

    Program didactics will be provided within the CU Rehabilitation Sciences PhD Program,
    Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute, and the VA Rocky Mountain Regional Medical Center (RMR VAMC) through the Eastern Colorado Health Care System Geriatric Research, Education and Clinical Center.

    If you are interested and would like additional information, please email Dr.
    Harris-Love ( with a statement of interest that explains your research interests and skills and provide your current CV. The call for applicants will remain open until a candidate is hired.
