    Position Announcement

    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: Oct. 15th 1998.

    Responsibilities: Research and development of accurate human models in terms
    of their kinematics, strength and fatigue. 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. Responsible for
    the collection of strength and fatigue data collection on space suited

    Equipment: The GRAF is equipped with a Flock of Birds Motion tracking system,
    Cybergloves, VR helmets, and several Silicon Graphics Workstations. You will
    also have access to Biomechnics related equipment ( motion capture system &
    dynamometers etc. )

    Qualifications: Required: (1) Masters' Degree or PhD in Bioengineering,
    Biomechanics, Mechanical Engineer, Computer Graphics (2) Extensive C/C++
    programming experience (graphics programming (gl or opengl a plus) (3)
    Experience in dynamics simulation (4) Interest/experience in human
    biomechanical modeling. (5) Proven proposal/grant writing skills (6) Permanent
    Resident/US Citizen

    Application: Screening of applications will begin immediately and will
    continue until a suitable candidate is hired. Send a letter of application,
    a resume, and the names and addresses of three references to:
