  • PhD position in Jena

    PhD position (BAT IIa/2) in Jena open
    for the DFG research project “Muscle-tendon-properties of small mammals

    Eigenschaften des Muskel-Sehnen-Komplexes kleiner Säuger“

    In the line of the DFG research project “Muscle-tendon-properties of
    small mammals” a PhD position is open at the institute of Sportscience
    (section: Science of Motion). The position is limited for two years, but
    it could be prolonged potentially.

    The aim of the project is the experimental estimation of muscle-tendon
    properties of small mammals. Especially the adjustment to different
    tasks like shock absorption, maximum power, damping and stabilisation
    will be investigated. (compare e.g. : Wagner et al. (2005) „ISOFIT: a
    model-based method to measure muscle–tendon properties simultaneously” ferrer=parent&backto=journal,1,13;linkingpublicati onresults,1:109377,1).

    Due to extensive experimental works the candidate (preferably zoologist
    with programming knowledge or a physicist with biological knowledge)
    should be interested in physiological questions concerning muscles and
    their experimental realisation.

    The candidate should have an above-average motivation and dedication. He
    will have to co-operate with an interdisciplinary group of sport
    scientists, biologists, medics, physicists and engineers.

    Please send your application until 1.10.05 to the following address.
