    PhD Studentship – Neck biomechanics and neurophysiology
    School of Human Kinetics
    University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada

    We are looking for a PhD student interested in conducting research
    into the role of gender in the etiology of whiplash injury. The
    research involves investigating the anatomy, biomechanics and
    neurophysiology of the neck using magnetic resonance and fluoroscopic
    imaging, surface and wire EMG, and neuromechanical and impact testing.
    The project is funded through an NSERC Discovery Grant.

    The ideal candidate will have a Masters degree in mechanical/
    biomedical engineering, biomechanics, kinesiology, neuroscience or a
    related discipline. Research experience with human subjects, motion
    analysis, multi-axis accelerometry, force transducers, surface and
    wire EMG, statistical analysis software, programming of motion
    controllers, and general programming (MatLab and Labview) is
    desirable. Prior experience acquiring geometrical data from MR and
    fluoroscopic images is a plus.

    All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians
    and Permanent Residents will be given priority.

    The candidate will be co-supervised by Drs. Jean-Sebastien Blouin and
    Gunter Siegmund of the School of Human Kinetics. The position is
    available immediately upon acceptance to UBC. Interested candidates
    should email a brief letter describing their motivation and a detailed
    CV to:
