Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Motor Control and Rehabilitation
University of Michigan

A two-year post-doctoral fellowship funded through a T-32 NIH training
program is immediately available for research focused on sensorimotor
control and rehabilitation in the Division of Kinesiology and the
Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of
Michigan. Current research involves upper limb and hand coordination
in adults with cerebral palsy and the effectiveness of internet-based
sensorimotor training to improve function. Opportunities exist to
explore related motor control areas including somatosensory ability in
older adults and individuals with impaired sensorimotor performance. A
strong desire to develop an independent line of research is
encouraged.

Interested candidates must have been awarded a PhD within the past 4
years and be able to provide evidence of strong writing skills,
including a peer-reviewed publication record in the field of motor
control, biomechanics, bioengineering and/or neurorehabilitation.
Experience with 3-D motion capture systems and related software skills
essential. Programming skills and experience with neuroimaging
techniques desirable but not necessary. Candidates must be highly
motivated, be able to work independently, and be willing to combine
theoretical and clinical approaches in the study of motor performance
and rehabilitation.

Interested candidates should submit electronically a letter describing
their research interests, curriculum vitae, copies of 1-2 relevant
publications, and the names and addresses of two references to Susan
H. Brown, PhD, Division of Kinesiology, University of Michigan
(shcb@umich.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately.
Note that this position is for U.S. citizens and permanent residents
only.
