  • Biomechanical/Biomedical Post-doctoral Research Associate

    The Trauma Mechanics Research Initiative
    ( at the
    University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks a highly motivated post-doctoral
    researcher to perform theory, modeling and simulation research in the
    field of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This is part of a large scale
    effort supported by the U.S. Army with computational simulation and
    experiments on small animals, cadavers, and headforms. An immediate
    appointment is available and a competitive salary will be offered
    based on individual background and experience.

    Specific qualifications:

    * Ph.D. in Biomechanical/Biomedical Engineering with a focus in large
    scale Finite Element Modeling and simulation
    * Proficient in geometric modeling of the human body (from MRI/CT
    data), applying impact/shock load conditions, analysis of pre- and
    post-processing of large data sets
    * Experience in biomaterials modeling with a focus on fluid-structure
    interactions and scale-up of small animal to human models
    * Capable of interfacing with interdisciplinary teams
    * Competent in Bio-Engineering Mechanics
