Research Fellow in Measurement and Biomechanics of Human Movement.

The Centre for Rehabilitation and Human Performance Research at the
University of Salford is seeking an experienced and enthusiastic Research

associated with the development of inertial measurement systems for use
in real-world human movement analysis

You will be based in the Centre for Rehabilitation and Human Performance
Research at the University of Salford
(http://www.healthcare.salford.ac.uk/crhpr/), which has a strong and rapidly
growing research record in assistive devices for the disabled (including
prosthetics, orthotics and FES), human movement analysis and
biomechanics. Since 2000, the Centre has attracted over 1.4 million in
external research grants, and published over 100 peer reviewed journal
papers. The Centre is a lively and friendly place to work, with a membership
that includes ~20 academic staff, ~6 Research Fellows, and ~25 research

You should have a strong background in biomedical engineering or
biomechanics, experience of experimental human movement analysis and
gait laboratory equipment, and the ability to organise studies involving
human subjects. You will have a good first degree in a numerate scientific
discipline, such as engineering or physics, and a higher degree in an area
related to this post, or equivalent relevant experience.
