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. Individuals with backgrounds in engineering, physical therapy, or occupational therapy are welcome to apply.

This program takes advantage of ongoing collaborations among Marquette University, the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Shriners Children's Chicago to train qualified candidates. Fellows selected for the program will receive training to: 1) conduct high quality research; 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 disseminating publications, conference presentations, and generation of high-quality grant proposals.

The fellow will have the opportunity to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment. Individuals with a background in biomedical/rehabilitation engineering, biomechanics, human movement sciences, biomedical imaging, and musculoskeletal modeling are encouraged to apply. Qualified candidates must have a doctorate in engineering, physical therapy, or occupational therapy with strong research skills. Experience in rehabilitation research in applications of machine learning to human mobility including gait, segmental foot and ankle biomechanics, shoulder biomechanics, and/or wheelchair propulsion biomechanics is desired.

To apply, please submit a cover letter with your research interests and experience, a CV, and contact information for three professional references to https://employment.marquette.edu/postings/16931. 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.
