    Ph.D. or POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW, BIOMECHANICS

    Biomechanics Laboratory
    Department of Mechanical Engineering
    Royal Military College
    of Canada Kingston, Ontario, Canada

    Starting date: September 1, 2008

    A Ph.D. or postdoctoral research fellowship is available in the Biomechanics
    Laboratory, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Royal Military
    College of Canada. We are searching for an outstanding research fellow to
    assist in the development of finite element models for injury prediction and
    prevention. The research will focus on the development of a finite element
    model of a human cervical spine for evaluation of head and neck injuries and
    will propose prevention tools for pilot. This research program is funding by
    the Aerospace Research Advisory Committee (AERAC) of the Department of National
    Defence (DND)of Canada.
    DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES:

    1. Develop and validate a 3-D dynamic Finite Element (FE) model of the head-neck
    complex to understand the behaviour of the cervical spine under different types
    of loading situations to prevent injuries

    2. Design and implement the experimental techniques necessary to validate
    computational results

    3. Further develop scientific publishing skills by authoring and co-authoring
    high quality journal articles,

    4. Develop excellent presentation skills by participating in national and
    international conferences,

    5. Propose a tool for the prevention of neck injuries during aircrew activities

    At the end of the project the candidate should be able to perform independent
    research, have peer reviewed publications in finite element simulation,
    familiarity with medical image segmentation, geometry generation and mesh
    development and excellent verbal and written communication skills.


    A Masters degree or Ph.D. in biomechanics, biomedical engineering, or mechanical
    engineering is required. Strong candidates with a doctoral degree in a closely
    related field for postdoctoral fellow will be considered.


    To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, copies of two representative
    publications, and contact information for two references, preferably by e-mail
    to Kodjo.Moglo@rmc.ca.

    Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.

    RMC is a bilingual university either French or English speaking persons are
    encouraged to apply

    Canadian citizenship or land immigrant status is useful, but NOT mandatory.
