Post-doctoral fellow - Prosthetic Mechanical Design Research

The Center for Bionic Medicine at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago
and the Mechanical Engineering Department at Northwestern University are
looking for an ambitious Post-Doctoral Fellow with expertise in mechanical
design to be an integral team member in the design of prosthetic devices.
The Fellow will be co-mentored by Michael Peshkin PhD, Dept. of Mechanical
Engineering, Northwestern University and Todd Kuiken MD, PhD, Director of
the CBM.

The Fellow will be responsible for the design of complex prosthetic
devices, including testing and moving the concept forward to human
application. The Fellow will work in close consultation with engineers, and
clinicians to achieve and test progressive developments; will participate
in regular development meetings with supervising team members; will keep
informed of developments in field to maintain and enhance professional
expertise; will contribute ideas toward the continued development of the
program; and will participate in research activities. This advertised
position provides the opportunity for an interested Fellow to realize both
basic science goals and exciting clinical applications. A two-year
commitment from the Fellow is needed for this position.  Applications will
be received until April 5th.
