    Post-doc in Biomechanics

    Department of Human Movement and Sport Sciences

    Istituto Universitario di Scienze Motorie

    We are seeking two highly motivated individuals for two post-doctoral
    fellowships at the Laboratory of Biomechanics in the Department of Human
    Movement and Sport Sciences of the University Institute for Movement Science
    in Rome, Italy. The focus of the laboratory is the biomechanical analysis of
    human movement in both the sports and rehabilitation fields. Ongoing
    research includes methodological studies on joint kinematics and kinetics
    using stereophotogrammetry, the development of methods for biomechanical
    data processing, the assessment of motor performance of individuals at risk
    of disability, the study of internal disturbances to the maintenance of
    upright posture, and the biomechanical analysis of sports activities with
    special attention to gymnastics.

    Requirements of the positions are the completion of a PhD in biomedical
    engineering or a related field (or an equivalent three-year experience),
    proficiency in computer programming, excellent communication skills, and
    research experience in a field related to the ongoing work of the lab. The
    net annual income is about €15,000. The post-doc position is for a period of
    one year. The positions remain open until the appropriate candidates are

    The Laboratory of Biomechanics is fully equipped with a 9-camera VICON real
    time motion capture system, a 6-camera SMART motion capture system, 5
    six-component force plates (Bertec and AMTI), 2 three-component force
    plates, a PowerLab data acquisition system, and several dynamometers and
    accelerometers. Electromyography equipment is available at the Human
    Physiology Laboratory within the same department.

    Interested candidates are kindly requested to send a recent copy of their
    curriculum vitae and two letters of reference to:
