    Re: Nike - Biomechanics Researcher I

    Dear Recruiter at Nike,

    I am very interested in the Biomechanics Research position at Nike.

    I believe, I will make a strong contribution to the team with my given background in the field of Biomechanics. My strengths in the area of computational biomechanics include my research during my PhD and post doc years. My PhD dissertation was focused on the development of 3D human gait using MATLAB, C++, Simulink and SIMM, Visual 3D and Vicon Nexus software. This model has many applications including understanding the human gait, designing an intervention for stroke patients, and helping them to rehabilitate.

    During my post doc year at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and UC Davis, I was involved with numerous biomechanic and ergonomic projects including the development of the index finger model and study falling from a ladder.

    Given my desire to expand my career horizon in the goal of innovation in human performance, I'm very interested in joining your team.

    I have included a copy of my CV. At your earliest convenience, I'm interested in discussing this with you further.
