Northwestern University - Postdoc Position in Lower Limb Prosthetics



We are seeking applicants for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in lower limb
prosthetics at the Northwestern University Prosthetics-Orthotics Center.
Applicants should have expertise in the following areas: solid mechanics,
finite element modelling, rapid prototyping and CAD/CAM. The applicant will
be expected to apply this knowledge to prosthetic socket development and
evaluation , particularly as these objectives relate to biomechanics of
human walking. A PhD in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering,
materials science or relevant engineering discipline is expected. Prior
post-doctoral research experience will be viewed favorably. Applicants must
be self-motivated and able to work both independently and as part of a team.
Excellent written and spoken English skills are essential. This position
will require a minimum 2 year commitment conditional to availability of
funding. Salary will be based on the successful applicants experience
commensurate with NIH post-doctoral stipend levels.



We are a collaborative team interested in fostering a strong interactive and
productive environment. The project involves collaboration between the
Northwestern University Departments of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation,
Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and the Brooke Army
Medical Center. More information about our research program can be found at:
