    This is an update: The interview process has been delayed so we are still recruiting for this Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Cerebral Palsy Assessment and Treatment Leon Root Motion Analysis Laboratory (LRMALab) at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). We would like to start the fellowship this fall so if you are interested this would be a great time to apply.

  • Post-doctoral Research Fellowship in Cerebral Palsy Assessment and Treatment Leon Root Motion Analysis Laboratory (LRMALab) at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS)

    Requirements of this position include the completion of a PhD in engineering, rehabilitation, physical therapy, kinesiology, anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, or a related discipline; proficiency in the theory, design, and implementation of human movement research; and excellent communication skills, and research experience related to the analysis of human movement. The ideal candidate would have a strong interest and background in both the theoretical and experimental aspects of cerebral palsy assessment and treatment. Prior clinical experience would be a plus. This post-doctoral position is for one year and renewable to two years.

    During the fellowship, the individual will participate in on-going research and initiate new research in pediatric orthopaedics and rehabilitation. This fellowship will focus upon post-operative outcomes for the child with CP (e.g., split tibialis posterior transfers and crouch gait surveillance comparing semitendinosus transfer versus semimembranosus lengthening). The laboratory evaluates a wide range of individuals including pediatric, adult and geriatric in a multi-disciplinary environment. The central philosophy of the laboratory is to examine the relationship between anatomical and physiological structure and biomechanical function to improve our methods of evaluating and treating individuals with neuromusculoskeletal disease. Our vision is to enhance diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment (conservative and surgical) strategies for such patients through the quantitative observation and subject-specific model predictions of their ability to perform functional tasks.

    The post-doctoral research fellow will report to the Senior Director (Howard J Hillstrom, PhD) and co-medical Director (David Scher, MD) of the Leon Root, MD Motion Analysis Laboratory (LRMALab). Besides mentorship from the directors, the fellow will receive guidance from the staff in the clinical and scientific aspects of cerebral palsy and its impact upon movement. The fellow will participate in the Clinical Review Panel of the Rehabilitation Department and mentor staff members in the development and execution of research protocols. The fellow will contribute to the development of research, grant proposals, staff education, experimental methods, and measurement techniques. Publications and presentations of research findings are encouraged and expected as well.

    HSS is the world’s leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health. At its core is Hospital for Special Surgery, ranked No. 1 in orthopedics for 12 years in a row by U.S. News & World Report (2010-2022). HSS has also been among the top-ranked hospitals for both orthopedics and rheumatology for 30 consecutive years.
