    Job Description
    The University of Virginia's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) is seeking a sports minded Laboratory and Research Specialist with a background in biomechanical engineering to aid in collecting 3D kinematic and kinetic data on both patients and human research subjects in the SPEED (Strength, Power, Endurance, Education, and Development) Clinic in the Gait and Motion Laboratory. The successful candidate will perform biomechanical assessments using state of the art 3D motion capture technology and instrumented treadmill to track patients and human research subjects through a variety of test and performance protocols. Duties include analyzing and sharing data with clinicians (physicians, PTs, athletic trainers) and coaches (sport specifics and strength/conditioning). The goal at the SPEED Clinic is to continue to serve all athletes of all ability levels. The SPEED Clinic strives to help each individual person reach his/her potential through better efficiency and reduced biomechanical insult.

    Essential Job Responsibilities
    1) Collect and analyze kinematic and kinetic data of runners using VICON 3D motion capture technology and AMTI force plate instrumented treadmill.
    2) Collect and analyze kinematic and kinetic data of golfers using VICON 3D motion capture technology and in ground force places.
    3) Collect and analyze kinematic and kinetic data of research populations using VICON 3D motion capture technology and AMTI instrumented treadmill/in ground force plates.
    4) Collaborate with clinicians (physicians, PTs, athletic trainers, research sponsors) and coaches (sport specific and strength/conditioning).
    5) Modify hardware and software to meet the needs of future clinical and research projects.
    6) Provide basic statistical analysis for data sets.
    7) Assemble and write research reports and publications.
