    Position: Lockheed Martin at NASA Johnson Space Center is searching for
    a full-time PhD ( or Masters level ) Bioengineer/Biomechanist/Mechanical to
    assist in the biomechanical modeling of space suited and unsuited astronauts
    at NASA's Graphics Research and Analysis Facility ( GRAF ) in the Human
    Interface Department.

    Location: Houston Texas. Thirty minutes south of downtown and 30 minutes north
    of Galveston.

    Employment Date: August 30, 1997.

    Responsibilities: Research and development of accurate human models in terms
    of their kinematics and strength. Using the graphics environment and
    programming tools to research dynamics of human motion to ascertain required
    torques and forces for particular motions. Research will focus on
    micro-gravity motion that will involve both the unsuited and the space suited
    astronaut. Accurate space suit kinematics will be developed.

    Equipment: The GRAF is equipped with a Flock of Birds Motion tracking system,
    Cybergloves, VR helmets, and several Silicon Graphics Workstations. Motion
    analyses hardware, force plates.

    Qualifications: Required: (1) Masters' Degree or PhD in Bioengineering,
    Biomechanics, or Mechanical Engineer (2) Extensive C/C++ programming experience
    (graphics programming (gl or opengl a plus) (3) Experience in dynamics
