  • OpenSim and NCSRR Visiting Scholar Program - Stanford University

    The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) at Stanford University is now accepting applications for its 2012 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 the NCSRR at Stanford University for a 10-week period from mid-June to late-August. Each visiting scholar will receive a $15,000 stipend. 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 exceptional skills in computer science, simulation, and biomechanics who will advance the field of movement science through the development of new software, biomechanical models, and outstanding research.

    Applications are due on January 17, 2012. For more information and applications, visit our website:
