Assistent professor in Sport Sciences at the UMC Groningen (deadline August 20th)
The program of the Center for Human Movement Sciences combines insights from the medical sciences, behavioral sciences and the neurosciences in order to develop an integrated approach that delivers not only basic knowledge on motor control, behaviour and learning but that is also able to deliver answers to important motor problems and issues concerning health, aging and sports. At the CHMS movement is not seen as a motor proces per se, but as the result of a continuous interaction between motor, sensory and cognitive mechanisms. Studies are performed to unravel the dynamic nature of this interaction in order to learn more about how a human being is able to adapt to the continuously changing environment. There are three main lines of research: 1) movement and healthy ageing, 2) motor recovery and rehabilitation and 3) sports, learning and performance.
