The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences seeks applicants for a
position at the tenure-track level in biomechanics and motor control, with an expected start date
of July 1, 2018.
We are seeking candidates working in human biomechanics and motor control. Example areas
include, but are not limited to, upper and lower extremity control, motor learning, sensorimotor
control, neural engineering, and computational modeling. In addition to developing a research
program, the successful candidate will contribute to teaching and curriculum development at both
the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences provides a highly interdisciplinary and
collaborative environment, with the opportunity to work with students and colleagues from diverse
fields, including strong connections to the medical school and to biological and physical science
departments. In addition, the candidate will have access to state of the art laboratory facilities for
biomechanics and physiological experiments. We particularly encourage applications from
historically underrepresented groups, including women and minorities.
A doctorate or terminal degree in a related field is required by the expected start date.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interests, a teaching
statement, 3-5 letters of recommendation, and up to three representative papers. We encourage
candidates to apply by December 15, 2017, but will continue to review applications until the position
