The Department of Veterans Affairs Rehabilitation Research & Development Center
of Excellence for Limb Loss Prevention and Prosthetic
 (Seattle, WA) has a position open for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in
biomechanics and robotics. The appointment will be made through the Department
of Mechanical Engineering <http://www.me.washington.edu/> at the University
of Washington. The candidate will work at the Veterans Affairs Hospital
under the guidance of Dr. Aubin.

This position requires a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer
Science, Mechanical Engineering, Biomechanics, Robotics, Mechatronics or a
related field. The candidates should have a strong interest in working with
multidisciplinary teams (engineers, orthopeadic surgeons, clinicians,
biomechanists, physical therapists, bioengineers, etc.) and will be
expected to publish scholarly papers, attend conferences, assist with grant
writing, as well as mentor undergraduate and graduate students. The major
responsibility of the successful applicant will be to conduct scientific
research within one of the following areas:

1.) Lower limb targeted muscle reinnervation.
2.) Lower limb powered prosthetics.
3.) Gait analysis, biomechanics, and rehabilitation.
4.) Biomechatronics and wearable robotics.

Interested candidates should send an application, assembled as a single PDF
file, consisting of a motivation letter (explaining research interests,
goals, and qualifications), a CV with full list of publications, two or
three relevant publications, and the email addresses of two reference
(expected to supply letters of recommendation) to Patrick Aubin
