POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN NEUROLOGICAL REHABILITATION
Post-doctoral fellow position available immediately at the Rehab Research
Lab, GF Strong Rehab Centre in Vancouver, BC, Canada. GF Strong Rehab
Centre is a provincial rehab hospital and known for its clinical programs in
stroke and spinal cord injury. The Rehab Research Lab is a 3000 square foot
lab co-managed by the University of BC School of Rehabilitation Sciences.
It is equipped with a 16 channel EMG system, 3 movable forceplates, 3D
Optotrak systems, KinCom Dynamometer, and Equitest-Balance System. See
www.rehab.ubc.ca/jeng for pictures, publications and more information.
Current projects evaluate the effect of neurological conditions (stroke,
Parkinson's disease, spinal cord injury) and their rehabilitation
interventions on postural control (anticipatory and reactive balance) and
functional movement (e.g., rising from a chair, reaching). The research
uses kinematic, kinetic and EMG analyses, in addition to quantitative
clinical assessments to understand the neural control of movement and its
impact on function. Other projects include a community-based functional
training program in stroke, an endurance training program in stroke, and a
study to examine effects of an FES device on gait in incomplete spinal cord
Salary is contingent on educational background and experience. A doctorate
in physical therapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, kinesiology or
engineering would be relevant.
The Rehab Research Lab is located in the heart of Vancouver in the beautiful
West Coast. Vancouver has excellent public schools, and has easy access to
beaches, sailing, world-class skiing and climbing.
