  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Biomechanics of Human Movement, University of Denver

    Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics in Movement Biomechanics and Dynamic Stereo Radiography

    An opening is available for an industry and federally funded Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Denver in the biomechanics of human movement. The successful candidate will be expected to lead and conduct advanced research projects, and interface on these projects with industry and federal sponsors, graduate students, and faculty. Excellent post-doctoral salary available, including benefits. Starting date negotiable, fall 2018 or winter 2019 preferred.

    IN VIVO BIOMECHANICS: Current research interests include precision measurement of natural and implanted knee, hip, and shoulder kinematics and kinetics, leading to musculoskeletal modeling and simulation.

    + PhD degree in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering or related field.
    + Experience with human subject measurement in a laboratory setting.
    + Experience with calculation and interpretation of knee, hip, and shoulder kinematics and kinetics.
    + Knowledge of programming languages (e.g. C++, Python, Matlab).
    + Excellent oral/written communication skills and interpersonal skills required.

    + Knowledge of image acquisition and post-processing using fluoroscopy/radiography.
    + Knowledge of musculoskeletal modeling using OpenSim or similar methods and tools.

    The Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics has recently moved into a new building, with world-class facilities, including a full motion capture laboratory with stereo radiography, experimental biomechanics laboratory with 6DOF joint simulator and mechanical test frames, implant retrieval laboratory, and computational biomechanics laboratory. The University of Denver ( was founded in 1864 and is the oldest private university in the Rocky Mountain region. The Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers graduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Bioengineering. In addition to educational opportunities, DUís location in Denver offers a wide range of cultural and outdoor activities. The University of Denver is an AA/EOE (Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer).

    To apply, please send a copy of your CV, and cover letter outlining fit within the position and Center.
    Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
