The Exercise and Sports Injury Lab (EASIL) is seeking applications for a post-doctoral research associate to join our group to work primarily on a NIH funded clinical trial to study the efficacy of a 12-week video game-based rehabilitation program for patients with knee joint osteoarthris. The position will be for at least 1 year with high likelihood for a second year based on successful completion of enrollment and availability of funds. This post-doctoral position is a focused experience in lower extremity neuromuscular assessment, EMG-based biofeedback, rehabilitation and clinical trials.

EASIL is housed in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Virginia. Our lab group includes 6 faculty, approximately 10 doctoral students, research coordinators and multiple undergraduate research assistants.

Research teams often include scientists and clinicians from diverse backgrounds and experiences. The Kinesiology department houses a direct-admit 4-year undergraduate major in addition to a pan-university minor in health and well-being. There are also 3 masters programs, one of which is a professional level masters program in Athletic Training.

The successful applicant must have a terminal degree (PhD) in kinesiology, exercise science, sports medicine, biomechanics or related field and have experience working in a clinical research setting with patients. Candidates must demonstrate ability to work in a multidisciplinary research team and must be an effective communicator.

Clinical credentials (ATC, PT, etc) are preferred. Experience with coding or software development is a plus but not required. Strong writing skills and a history of abstract presentations at professional conferences and published manuscripts in top peer reviewed journals is also preferred.
