We are looking for highly motivated individuals to carry out

to foster the understanding, etiology, and pathogenesis of chronic back
pain with a focus on the development of a model-based diagnostic toolbox
(supported by the BMBF).

Applicants (physicists, engineers, biologists, biomechanists, sports
scientists) with interest in biomechanic research should have experience
in techniques of measurement and/or mechanical modeling (including
MATLAB and libraries).

Applications must include a CV, a brief statement of research experience
