Position: Lockheed Martin at NASA Johnson Space Center is searching for
a full-time PhD ( or Masters level ) Bioengineer/Biomechanist/Mechanical to
assist in the biomechanical modeling of space suited and unsuited astronauts
at NASA's Graphics Research and Analysis Facility ( GRAF ) in the Human
Interface Department.

Location: Houston Texas. Thirty minutes south of downtown and 30 minutes north
of Galveston.

Employment Date: August 30, 1997.

Responsibilities: Research and development of accurate human models in terms
of their kinematics and strength. Using the graphics environment and
programming tools to research dynamics of human motion to ascertain required
torques and forces for particular motions. Research will focus on
micro-gravity motion that will involve both the unsuited and the space suited
astronaut. Accurate space suit kinematics will be developed.

Equipment: The GRAF is equipped with a Flock of Birds Motion tracking system,
Cybergloves, VR helmets, and several Silicon Graphics Workstations. Motion
analyses hardware, force plates.

Qualifications: Required: (1) Masters' Degree or PhD in Bioengineering,
