  • Visiting Scholar's Program - Stanford University

    The new National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research
    (NCSRR) is now accepting applications for its Visiting Scholars Program.

    NCSRR seeks to bring the power of engineering simulation to
    rehabilitation research. The Center supports OpenSim (
    ), biomechanical simulation software used by hundreds of research
    teams around the world. In addition, it provides training
    opportunities, seed grants, and a network of biomechanical and
    clinical experts to accelerate the integration of simulations into
    critical areas of rehabilitation.

    Our Visiting Scholars Program is a unique experience that fosters
    expertise and collaborations in biomechanical simulations for
    rehabilitation research. Each year up to four individuals will be
    chosen to visit NCSRR at Stanford University for a 10-week period from
    mid-June to late-August. Each visiting scholar will receive a $12,000
    stipend, plus up to $3000 for travel expenses. During their visits,
    awardees will receive training and mentoring to help them reach their
    research goals. They will have the opportunity to participate in
    formal meetings, discussions with OpenSim experts, and brainstorming
    sessions with their fellow visiting scholars to advance their research
    and the OpenSim project. The Visiting Scholars Program is intended
    for faculty members and postdoctoral fellows with advanced skills in
    computer science, simulation, and biomechanics who will advance the
    field of movement science through the the development of new software,
    biomechanical models, and outstanding research.

    Applications are due on January 17, 2011 . For more information and
