    Research Fellow, Centre for Wireless Monitoring and Applications

    Grade 1, Fixed Term (Two Years and Six Months), Full Time, Nathan campus

    The position is funded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and
    will be based at the Centre for Wireless Monitoring and Technology,
    School of Engineering, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia. Cricket
    Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport are key collaborators in
    the project.

    The Role:

    The project will develop a solution to enable the real-time wireless
    monitoring of the three-dimensional motion of the elbow joint of elite
    cricket bowlers in field conditions. The project involves extensive
    scoping of appropriate technologies, the development of a cricket
    specific motion analysis tool, validation against established
    biomechanical laboratory methodologies and miniaturization for
    unobtrusive wear by elite cricketers.

    The Person:

    The position provides an exciting opportunity for a PhD qualified
    scientist with a strong background in engineering, physics, mathematics
    and signal processing. Applicants with these skills from a variety of

    sciences) are encouraged to apply. A background and or strong interest
    in sport will be an advantage, but is not essential. The position
    requires good communication skills and the ability to work across a
    multi-site multi-stakeholder project. .

    The appointment is for 2.5 years and remuneration is at the Griffith
    University Researcher Fellow 1. The project will require close
    collaboration with sport scientists, engineers and staff from GU, CA and
    the AIS. Relocation funds will be provided where appropriate.
