A new opportunity for a Research Fellow with the European Space Agency Crew Medical Support Office is now available.

The aim of the post is to pursue an intervention study using the Functional Readaptive Exercise Device, which offers benefits for post-mission rehabilitation. The study may result in having significant cross over potential to terrestrial health care.

Applicants must have completed their PhD (or equivalent) in physiotherapy or a related field. Experience with patient rehabilitation programmes and/or therapeutic treatments of the spine will be an asset.

The Fellowship post is located in Cologne, Germany and is for two years.
