To whom it may concern:

We are currently seeking a PhD level or post-doctoral candidate interested in a highly focused project in finite element (FE) modeling of the pelvis. We are beginning a new project with the Global Human Body Modeling Consortium, whose initial aims are to develop FE models of 5th and 50th percentile females, 50th and 95th percentile males, for use in crash simulations and injury prediction. Our focus is on the pelvis and we are working collaboratively with researchers from Univ. of Virginia to develop lower extremity models.

Ideal candidates would have at least an MS in an engineering discipline and 2 years+ experience with modeling - meshing (e.g., TrueGrid, Hypermesh) and dynamic FE modeling (explicit codes such as LS-DYNA). Applicants should respond directly to me with complete resume and two references for initial screening.

Thank you for your consideration.
