A position is available immediately for a Research Assistant in the
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, National University of Singapore.

The project is funded by the National Medical Research Council, Singapore,
for a period of two years. The general scope of the work is in biomechanics
of prosthetic sockets for lower limb amputees. The specific aim of the
project is to generate a Finite Element Model of the amputee stump, allowing
the prediction of the pressure distribution at the amputee stump / socket
interface.

The work will involve both knowledge in FE modelling and experimentation.
Applicants should possess at least a good honours degree in Mechanical
Engineering, Biomechanics or related field. Knowledge of Finite Element
Analysis is essential, preferably with experience in using ABAQUS and
PATRAN. Though not required, desirable experiences include gait analysis
data interpretation and the basic use of the VICON motion analysis system.
