This Center is located at the Biomechanics Research Building at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO).
    POSITIONS OFFERED: The interested individuals can receive the post-doctoral research training for at least 1 year with possible renewals based on funding and performance.
    RESPONSIBILITIES: These include: conducting research related to projects within the building focusing on human movement variability. This person will be responsible for working directly with the medical doctors and project directors to ensure the projects progress.
