  • Two-year post-doc in image-based kinematics, Minnesota, USA

    Applications are invited by the Assistive and Restorative Technology Laboratory at Mayo Clinic, Rochester MN, and The Minnesota Rehabilitation Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Minnesota for a postdoctoral research scientist position. This fellowship will provide the opportunity to work on a collaborative project between the University of Minnesota and the Mayo Clinic that includes imaging protocol development and image-based kinematic analysis of the extremities using biplanar and single plane fluoroscopy.

    The post-doctoral position is available for a two year period beginning September 1st, 2014. Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. along with an educational background in engineering (biomedical, mechanical, electrical), physics, movement sciences, or imaging science. Image processing, computer visualization, and programming skills are preferred. Previous experience with in vitro validation of image-based measurements and application of image-based techniques to in vivo kinematics is also desirable; however, highly motivated candidates with interest in image-based kinematics are encouraged to apply.

    Successful candidates will be selected on the basis of academic record, research experience, career goals, letters of recommendation and motivation for a career in biomechanics research. Women and under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.

    Please apply as soon as possible by sending a cover letter with a statement of interest, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to Kristin Zhao, Ph.D. ( If you have any questions, please contact Dr.Kristin Zhao or Dr. Paula Ludewig (University of Minnesota, by e-mail as well.
