The Mobility Lab is currently seeking highly motivated doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows with an interest in musculoskeletal rehabilitation engineering of those with spinal cord injuries including child and adults across the lifespan. Focus is on biomechanics, computational modeling, and quantitative imaging. Funding is available for these competitive positions on a limited basis. Those with a background or major in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, or human movement sciences are encouraged to apply. Applications received by December 1st will be prioritized. Please contact Dr. Slavens at email@example.com with a statement of your interests and CV/resume if you are interested in applying for a position.
Postdoctoral Fellowship for Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) in Pediatric Mobility for Physicians, Therapists, and Engineers
(HHS/NIDILRR AWARD, 90ARHF0006-04-00)
The UWM Mobility Lab in collaboration with the Orthopaedic & Rehabilitation Engineering Center (OREC) in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Marquette University is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in pediatric mobility biomechanics. Individuals with a background in engineering are encouraged to apply for this two-year position.
This program takes advantage of ongoing collaborations among Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Shriners Hospitals for Children-Chicago to train qualified candidates. Fellows selected for the program will receive training to: 1) conduct high quality research in rehabilitation engineering; 2) complete a course of didactic and research instruction; and, 3) secure an academic and/or clinical position in rehabilitation research. The training for the fellow will be focused on human subjects data collection, papers and publications, and generation of high-quality grant proposals. The fellow will be mentored for research by Drs. Brooke Slavens, PhD and Jacob Rammer, PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and for didactics by Dr. Gerald Harris at Marquette University/Medical College of Wisconsin.
The fellow will have the opportunity to work in a collaborative, research-active, multidisciplinary environment. Individuals with a background in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering, wearable sensors and human movement sciences are encouraged to apply. Qualified candidates must have a doctorate in engineering, physical therapy, or occupational therapy with strong research skills. Experience in musculoskeletal biomechanics, human movement of the shoulder/arm, and/or rehabilitation is desired.
To apply, please submit a 1-page cover letter with your research interests and experiences, CV, and the names and contact information for 3 professional recommendations to https://employment.marquette.edu/postings/20253. We encourage applications from women, members of minority and underrepresented groups, veterans, persons with disabilities, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching mission. The review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Graduate Students Wanted
The doctoral student will have the opportunity to work in a collaborative, research-active, multidisciplinary environment. Individuals with an interest in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering, wearable sensors and human movement sciences are encouraged to apply. Qualified candidates must have an undergraduate degree in engineering, kinesiology or related discipline. The research will provide an opportunity to study musculoskeletal biomechanics, human movement of the shoulder/arm, and rehabilitation. Additional work may also include musculoskeletal imaging and wearable sensors. The experience will be tailored to the individual.
