Engineer will assist the laboratory in its program of development of
advanced computer models of biomechanical systems, combined with associated
graphics visualization software. The engineer will implement mathematical
algorithms in computer simulations in order to calculate muscle forces and
joint contact pressures during various biomechanical functions. Also will
develop 3D computer visualization applications to enable the interactive
display of the results of such simulations. Software will be developed
primarily on Silicon Graphics workstations, and will use standard programming
languages combined with graphics libraries.

Master's degree in engineering discipline (e.g. Mechanical Engineering,
Biomedical Engineering, Engineering Mechanics) is required. Must have a strong
background in solid mechanics and rigid body mechanics. Must have experience in
development of engineering simulations and 3D visualization software. Knowledge
of C/C++ and OpenGL languages will be very helpful. Work experience in a
research environment a plus.
