ジョージア工科大学 ポスドク募集

Postdoctoral position at Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA


The Center for Human Movement Studies at the School of Applied Physiology of Georgia Tech (http://www.ap.gatech.edu/) is inviting
applications for a postdoctoral position to work on a project "Sensorimotor Control of Locomotion after Peripheral Nerve Injury". The scope of the project will include investigations of (1) mechanical response of the local musculoskeletal system to peripheral nerve injury and repair, (2) short-term compensation of muscle coordination during the recovery from self-reinnervation of selected ankle extensors in the cat, and (3) contribution of proprioception from intact muscles to adaptation of the motor patterns to the loss of feedback in selected ankle extensors. The research will involve close collaboration with the groups of Dr. Arthur English (Emory University) and T. Richard Nichols (Emory University/Georgia Tech). The Center for Human Movement Studies has a 6-camera Vicon system, three small Bertec force platforms, and equipment for recording muscle and nerve activity and forces from selected muscles.

The appointment will start immediately and be for one year initially and renewable up to a total of 3-5 years. Successful candidate is expected to have a background in human/animal movement science,
biomedical engineering, neurophysiology or related fields. Experience in motion analysis, animal surgery and chronic physiological recordings is beneficial.

Existing research programs at the School of Applied Physiology use a systems physiology approach to study movement and mobility at all levels, from molecule to organism. Research areas include muscle and exercise physiology, neural control, biomechanics, and prosthetics and orthotics. Opportunities for collaboration exist on campus and with the Emory School of Medicine, Georgia State University and the Atlanta VA Medical Center. Georgia Tech is one of the top 10 US public research universities and is situated on an attractive 400 acre campus in the heart of Atlanta, a culturally-rich and dynamic city.

Please send CV, research summary, and contact information of three references to Dr. Robert J. Gregor at robert.gregor@ap.gatehc.edu or Dr. Boris I. Prilutsky at boris.prilutsky@ap.gatech.edu.
