    Post-Doctoral Research in Biomechanics

    Biomechanics Research Laboratory
    University of Southern California
    Los Angeles, CA 90089-0652

    Highly motivated individuals with a post-doctorate degree in a related area
    are invited to apply for a post-doctoral research opportunity in the
    Biomechanics Research Laboratory at the University of Southern California.

    Our research focuses on the mechanisms humans use to generate
    and control momentum during goal-directed multijoint movements. We integrate
    experimentation and modeling techniques to study control and dynamics
    during multijoint motion performed by skilled subjects (e.g. elite male and
    female athletes, musicians, technicians) in realistic contexts (e.g. US
    Olympic Training Camps, Olympic Games, workplace, or research lab).

    Instrumentation and computing resources in the Biomechanics Research
    Laboratory includes: force plates (4, Kistler, Bertec), telemetered
    electromyography (16 channels, Konigsberg), motion analysis software (3D,
    Peak Performance), high speed digital video cameras (3) for 3D kinematics
    of movement involving impact, high end multiprocessor computers for
    graphics, simulation, and modeling applications (ADAMS, Mechanical
    Dynamics), and multimedia teaching lab (24, NT).

    Strongest consideration will be given to highly motivated applicants with
    good communication and teamwork skills with an interest in mechanics,
    neuromuscular control, and dynamic modeling.

    Los Angeles, California is a diverse and exciting place to live. The beach,
    mountains, and international culture provide a rich background for your
    development as a person and scientist.
