Now hiring – Research Associate in Biomechanics

A post-doctoral position in biomechanics is currently available at Flinders University, Australia and we are seeking outstanding candidates for this 2.5 years project. The Research Associate in Biomechanics will be involved in research within the Medical Device Research Institute and will be required to make significant contribution to performing research in the area of orthopaedic biomechanics.

The Research Associate in Biomechanics will contribute to the generation of the Virtual Human Knee, a project funded by the Australian Research Council (DP180103146). The project will advance knowledge of knee mechanics in healthy adult people through a highly multidisciplinary approach combining elements of experimental mechanics, imaging, and modelling and motion analysis. Expected outcomes include advancing current knowledge of knee mechanics and a tool for improving current injury prevention methods and knee reconstruction surgery applicable to each single individual

Candidates should have a background in engineering, biomechanics, human movement sciences, or orthopaedics. Applications are welcome from Australian and international candidates.

Applications close 11:00am Friday 16th March 2018.
