Not sure what you mean by mean of each position, so here are two
possibilities: rowMeans and colMeans:
> x1<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x2<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x3<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x4<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x5<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x6<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x7<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x8<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x9<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
> x10<-as.vector(rnorm(10))
>
> # create matrix
> x1.6 <- rbind(x1, x2, x3, x4, x5, x6)
> rowMeans(x1.6)
x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6
-0.7845288 0.3254140 -0.4430038 -0.1533713 0.6074253 -0.1560222
> colMeans(x1.6)
[1] 0.23480212 -0.08486182 -0.28657007 -0.59151369 0.08995106
0.55138690 -0.22388657
[8] -0.36354109 -0.20111151 -0.13146655
