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, 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; 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 be co-advised by Brooke A. Slavens, PhD at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The fellow will have the opportunity to work in a collaborative, multidisciplinary environment. Individuals with a background in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, rehabilitation engineering, 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 biomechanics, human movement, biomedical imaging, and musculoskeletal modeling, is desired.
To apply, please submit a cover letter with your research interests and experience, a CV, and two letters of recommendation to https://employment.marquette.edu/postings/14153. 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.
