Postdoctoral Fellowship for Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) in Pediatric Mobility for Physicians, Therapists, and Engineers (HHS/NIDILRR AWARD, 90ARHF0006-04-00)
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 three 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.
