  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Biomechanical Modelling and Simulation inLondon, UK


    We have a new 1-year post (with the goal to extend it longer) working as a
    Research Fellow with my team. Details are below.

    We are searching for person with rather specific talents in modelling the
    musculoskeletal system, particularly at the level of whole limbs/organisms
    and terrestrial locomotion (i.e. not cell/tissue level modelling, and not
    fluid mechanics, etc.). An experienced user of OpenSim would be an ideal
    candidate. Researchers working on simulation of human gait biomechanics
    would be quite welcome. I *strongly* urge candidates to contact me in
    advance and discuss their suitability for the post before applying.
    Applications must be done online as detailed below.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Biomechanical Modelling & Simulation
    Veterinary Basic Sciences Department
    Location: Near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
    Salary: £30,324 per annum inclusive
    Closing Date: Thursday 25 February 2010
    Interview Date: Thursday 11 March 2010
    Reference: VBS-0013-10
    Application details:

    We are looking for a Research Fellow to work in the dynamic and successful
    Structure and Motion Group, mentored by academic Dr. John R. Hutchinson, for
    a 12-month fellowship post starting around 1st June 2010 with a goal to
    apply for external fellowship funding for three to five years.

    You would engage in independent and collaborative research within the lab,
    especially with Dr. Hutchinson’s growing team, focused on computer modelling
    and simulation of vertebrate musculoskeletal function in locomotion and
    emphasizing one to two research projects of mutual interest.

    You will have a PhD in locomotor biomechanics, engineering, computer science
    or related fields. Experience undertaking research in computer modelling
    and simulation of musculoskeletal function is essential, as is expertise in
    using Matlab software. You should be enthusiastic and highly motivated with
    excellent organisational and interpersonal skills and be able to work with
    minimum supervision.

    We offer a generous reward package including a final salary pension scheme.
