The Center for Applied Biomechanics (CAB) at the University of Virginia is seeking to fill multiple Post-Doctoral positions in a wide range of disciplines within biomechanics. In addition to the study of injury, current research needs include expertise in control theory, nonlinear vibrations, constitutive modeling, and mechanical design as they apply to the etiology of injury and development of protective systems. Applicants should send their C.V. and letter of interest to:

The CAB, which just celebrated its 20th anniversary, is the largest university-based injury biomechanics laboratory in the world. The 30,000 square-foot facility, located in the University of Virginia’s North Fork Research Park, boasts several state-of-the-art pieces of equipment, as well as custom resources and capabilities that are unique to our laboratory. This includes several servo-hydraulic and electro-mechanical materials testing machines, a Seattle Safety Systems servo-controlled reverse-acceleration sled, a VIA Systems deceleration sled, a 16-camera high-speed motion capture system, and the world’s first university-based full-scale dynamic vehicle rollover test system, which is capable of rolling a sport-utility vehicle at 400-deg/s and dropping it onto a moving roadbed. The Center is a joint venture of the Schools of Engineering and Medicine and houses researchers with a diversity of backgrounds, including mechanical, biomedical, and electrical engineering, applied mechanics, biostatistics, epidemiology, orthopedic surgery, emergency medicine, radiology and pathology.
