POST-DOCTORAL POSITION

A Post-doctoral position is available immediately at the BioDynamics
Research Laboratory at Imperial College, London, England under the joint
supervision of Dr Alison McGregor (link 1) and Dr Anthony Bull (link 2). The
post will be jointly held by the Departments of Musculoskeletal Surgery and
Bioengineering.
The laboratory is part of the Musculoskeletal Surgery Department at Imperial
College, and is part of college-wide BioDynamics collaborative research team
looking at treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. This
involves a close collaboration with other groups, notably the biomechanics
laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering under the supervision
of Professor Andrew Amis (Link 3).

Description of Post,
The main thrust of the project is the analysis and understanding the
kinematics and mechanics of the spine during rowing activities. This project
will include modelling using SIMM (Link 4), instrumentation, and
experimental validation.
