  • Biomechanical Engineer Job Posting - JHU APL

    Biomechanical Engineering Position -- Johns Hopkins University Applied
    Physics Laboratory (APL)

    The Biomedicine Business Area within APL is seeking an experienced
    engineer with computational expertise to join an innovative team
    currently working to solve challenging biomedical problems. The
    research team is involved in a number of innovative research programs
    including the development of human models for investigating injury
    thresholds during dynamic loading events. We form interdisciplinary
    project teams to address the critical challenges of our sponsors,
    drawing from the depth and breadth of expertise around the Laboratory,
    across the University, and with outside technical organizations.


    The selected Biomechanical Engineer will work to
    * Develop and exercise computational models of the human body
    * Perform simulations of dynamic impact scenarios, including blast and
    ballistic events
    * Analyze simulations in the development of injury criteria and damage
    * Provide thought leadership and technical direction


    The selected candidate must possess
    * MS degree in biomechanics, mechanical engineering, or a related field
    * Minimum of 5 years experience in computational modeling and
    simulations of human systems or organs
    * Demonstrated proficiency in LSDyna and Abaqus
    * Experience with MADYMO occupant simulation program
    * Knowledge of data acquisition methods coupled with demonstrated data
    processing and analysis techniques.

    In addition, the selected candidate will have some experience leading
    teams of engineers or programmers in the solution of a modeling problem
    with verification and validation of the model as part of the program.
    The candidate will also have the ability to work effectively both
    independently and as part of a team, coupled with excellent written and
    verbal communication skills. Applicants selected will be subject to a
    Government security investigation and must meet the eligibility
    requirements for access to classified information, which includes US

    It is desired that the selected candidate will possess 5 or more years
    of experience in blast physics and loading mechanisms and their effects
    on either human or vehicle systems with demonstrated experience in
    MatLab or equivalent programming experience. The ideal candidate will
    have knowledge of computational fluid dynamics and understanding of
    injury metrics and biological tissue testing as well as familiarity with
    anthropomorphic dummies and SAE data collection and experience in
    automotive impact analysis.


    Candidate will be expected to assist with biological tissue testing,
    which will require the strict observance of biohazard safety procedures.
    Some travel to test sites and conferences.


    Applicants selected will be subject to a Government security
    investigation and must meet the eligibility requirements for access to
    classified information, which includes US citizenship.
