  • Graduate Positions - Mechanics of Spinal Cord Injury

    Graduate Research Assistantships
    Neurospine Biomechanics Lab
    Mechatronic Systems Engineering
    Simon Fraser University, Vancouver CANADA

    Applications are invited for two graduate research assistantships for
    students interested in pursuing Master’s or Ph.D. degrees in Mechatronic
    Systems Engineering.

    Research Area
    Projects are focused on modeling and simulation of the spine, spinal cord
    and injury. The laboratory specializes in computational models and
    mechanical characterization of tissue properties for use in these
    computational models. There are currently two funded research projects
    exploring the effect of scale on spinal cord injury and modeling the
    thermodynamics of hypothermic treatments of spinal cord injury. Students who
    wish to propose their own research questions within this area may also be
    considered (and if accepted, will be funded).

    Applicants for the Master’s program should have a Bachelor’s degree in
    Mechanical or Bio Engineering. Applicants for the Ph.D. program should have
    completed a Master’s degree.

    The start date may be Spring or Fall 2011.

    Interested applicants should contact the supervising professor.
