  • Postdoc and/or Ph.D. positions in Biomechanics and Motor Control at East Carolina University

    We are anticipating 2 newly funded DOD grants next month and are recruiting post docs and/or Ph.D. students to support these efforts under the supervision of Dr. Zac Domire and Dr. Nick Murray.

    For the post doc:

    The postdoctoral scholar is responsible for independent and collaborative development, implementation, and analysis of scientific research in the discipline of biomechanics and motor control. Responsibilities include management of all aspects of examining biomechanical and sensorimotor markers of neural function (brain imaging, balance control, and eye tracking) on military personnel exposed to repetitive loading on fast boats.
    Required Qualifications:
    • PhD in Biomechanics, Motor Control, or a related field
    • Interest and/or experience in biomedical and motor control instrumentation (e.g., motion capture, accelerometers, EEG, eye tracking)
    • Ability to work independently
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills; English Proficiency
    Duties include:
    • Hypothesis development, literature review, collection of pilot data, report writing,
    • Supervising undergraduate and graduate research students
    • Overseeing data collection procedures (including at sites on military bases)
    • Supervising experimental procedures
    • Review of data for quality control, supervision of data entry/data analysis
    • Analysis of research hypothesis using descriptive and multivariate statistics
    • Development of independent and collaborative presentations and publications.
    To apply please submit the following documents: Curriculum Vitae/Resume
    1. Curriculum Vitae/Resume
    2. Cover Letter
    3. List of References

    For the Ph.D. positions:

    Degree Offered:
    Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and Exercise Science with a concentration in Biomechanics and Motor Control Or Master of Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in Biomechanics and Motor Control

    Typically, our Ph.D. assistantships are research based and require 20 hour per week towards laboratory research.

    Minimum Qualifications:
    1. A baccalaureate degree in a related field from an institution accredited by a regional association.
    2. A grade point average of 2.5 or greater on a 4.0 scale on all undergraduate work or a grade point average of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale in either the undergraduate major work or work taken during the senior year.
    3. Students, whose first language is not English, must receive an acceptable score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
    4. Applications are welcome from students with diverse academic backgrounds. However, students whose undergraduate preparation lacks essential prerequisite coursework or whose baccalaureate degree is in a non-related field may have additional requirements.

    Strong interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills are required.

    The mission of the Performance Optimization Laboratory (POL) is to help all people perform at their best. Human performance optimization is translational across many populations and tissue states (healthy, diseased, and injured). Sport performance of athletes, mission performance of our nation’s warfighters, performing activities of daily living in older adults, and restoring and optimizing function […]

    Research within Visual Motor Lab (VML) involves projects that examine visual attention, arousal, mental workload, and visual processing through neuroimaging. The goal of our research program is to understand how vision and cognition control and modulate motor behavior. This research is based on the use of eye movement recordings, biometrics, and psychophysiological recordings including EMG, […]
