Post Doctoral Position in Occupational Biomechanics

Harvard University, School of Public Health
Department of Environmental Health

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral appointment in the newly-formed
research area in Ergonomics and Safety within the Department of
Environmental Health at Harvard University's School of Public Health. The
new area combines an engineering aspect with the public health approach to
the control and evaluation of occupational hazards for the prevention of
work-related musculoskeletal injury and illness. Specific research topics
include neuromusculoskeletal biomechanics, muscle mechanics, exposure
assessment techniques, intervention methodologies, and human-machine
interface design. The Department of Environmental Health offers an
interdisciplinary research atmosphere with biologists, physiologists,
industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, and engineers working together.
The program has close ties with the Liberty Mutual Research Center in
Hopkinton, MA through a joint program in Occupational Safety and Health.

The candidate should have an experimental background as well as an interest
and expertise in occupational biomechanics. In addition, the candidate
should have a Ph.D. in engineering (industrial, mechanical or bio),
biomechanics, physiology, or a related field.

Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a brief cover
letter describing their research interests, and the names and addresses of
three references to the address below. Both electronic (i.e. e-mail
attachments) and hard copy submissions are welcome. Applications will be
accepted until the position is filled, but review of the applicants will
begin June 15, 1999. The start date for the appointment is September 1,

Harvard University is committed to increasing representation of women and
minority members among its academic appointments and particularly
encourages applications from such candidates.
