  • Nike Sports Research Lab - Biomechanics Researcher II

    Become a Part of the Nike Team

    Nike does more than outfit the world’s best athletes. We’re a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries, and push out the edges of what can be. We’re looking for people who can grow, think, dream and create. We thrive in a culture that embraces diversity and rewards imagination. We seek achievers, leaders and visionaries. At Nike, it’s about bringing what you have to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

    As our NIKE Sport Research Lab (NSRL) Researcher II, you will be responsible for executing research programs (comprised of both applied and basic research) aimed at delivering proven performance insights that will lead to technologically innovative footwear, apparel and equipment that are globally relevant. You will work closely with the Senior Researcher to create a research vision and plan. You will act as a creative scientist - questioning methods, results and applications - and think outside normal paradigms to find creative ways around barriers to enhancing performance or preventing injury. You will participate in the development of new tools, methods and procedures that will streamline data acquisition. In addition, you will become a resident expert for all of the biomechanical research tools used by the Nike Sport Research Lab staff. You will lead in the area of your program as a full time member of the Product Creation Process, interacting with Senior Researchers and Product Innovators in all phases of research to provide a holistic evaluation of innovation concepts.

    Ergonomics plus two years of relevant work experience
    or five years of relevant work experience in lieu of a graduate degree
    • Possess a thorough understanding of anatomy, biomechanical principles, experimental design
    and statistical procedures
    • Significant experience writing programs to analyze biomechanical data is strongly preferred
    (Matlab, Mathematica, Labview, C/C++, or Python)
    • Demonstrate an understanding of sport performance & injury mechanisms
    • Exposure to industrial research experience preferred
    • Advanced knowledge and experience with tools used to collect biomechanical data
    (e.g. motion capture, force plates, EMG, etc.)
    • Experience running a focused research program is a plus
    • Knowledge of footwear and equipment product creation processes is a plus
    • Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously
    • Demonstrated experience being a creative scientist - ability to apply scientific insights to

      Hi Lauren,

      I am currently finishing my masters degree in Exercise Physiology at WVU with focuses in biomechanics and neuroscience. I have experience iworking with runners as well as with MATLAB. I applied for the other biomechanics researcher position posted last week, and would like to apply for this as well. I was wondering what the job ID is for this position on the Nike jobs website? Also, I wanted to know when these positions would be filled? Thank you so much and have a great weekend!

      Best,
      Kyla Galbreath

          Good afternoon,

          I am currently a Drexel University graduate with a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. For the past year I have worked with the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Center for Injury Research and Prevention in areas I believe to be highly applicable to the requirements of this position. The Nike Sports Research Lab is of considerable interest to me and should you be interested I would love to discuss my please contact me at rsh52@drexel.edu and find my resume attached below.

          Sincerely,
