  • Position for Biomechanist w/ FEM Experience

    A position is available in the Prosthetics Research Laboratory
    of Northwestern University for a Biomechanist with experience in
    finite element modeling. The laboratory is engaged in research
    and development in the field of limb prosthetics and orthotics;
    in applying engineering principles to the understanding of that
    field; and in the creative use of technology in product
    development for the field.

    An opening is available for the primary engineer on a currently
    funded project to develop a computerized technique for the
    design of sockets for prosthetic limbs. This project follows
    from previous work using finite element models to describe the
    three-dimensional mechanical interaction between a prostheses
    and the tissues of the residual limb. The previous work
    utilized MARC Analysis Corp. finite element code operating on a
    Sun Workstation UNIX platform.

    The successful applicant should have experience with
    three-dimensional, nonlinear, mechanical finite element
    analysis; a knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy; a background
    in biomechanics; and the ability to work creatively and
    independently. Knowledge of and experience with various medical
    imaging techniques and computer visualization are considered a
    plus. In the past this position has been filled at the Masters
    level, however, all degree levels will be considered.

    Interested applicants should reply to:

    Joshua Rolock, Ph.D.
    Northwestern University
    Prosthetics Research Laboratory
    Room 1441
    345 E. Superior St.
