  • University of British Columbia Postdoctoral Position in Sports Brain Injury Research

    The Sensing in Biomechanical Processes Lab (SimPL) in the Mechanical Engineering Department at UBC is inviting applications for a postdoctoral researcher position. SimPL develops advanced sensing and data analytics techniques to study fundamental biomechanical processes with healthcare applications. One main application area is sports-related mild traumatic brain injury, where we develop and apply wearable inertial and neurophysiology sensors to investigate the biomechanical mechanism of injury.

    We are currently recruiting a postdoctoral researcher in this area of work. Candidates with background in biomedical or mechanical engineering and expertise in instrumentation are preferred. Knowledge and experience in injury biomechanics, wearable sensing, or electrophysiology would be a plus. The position can start immediately.

    Candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Lyndia Wu at, with the following information:

    - Email title containing "SimPL Postdoc Application"
    - A brief statement of research experiences and interests in the email
    - Curriculum vitae
    - Contact information for 2 references

    The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a global centre for teaching, learning and research, consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world and recently recognized as North America’s most international university. The UBC Vancouver campus is located in the west of Vancouver overlooking the water, with view of the North Shore mountains, and numerous gardens on campus. Vancouver, a bustling west coast seaport in British Columbia, is among Canada’s densest, most ethnically diverse cities. It’s surrounded by mountains, and also has thriving art, theatre and music scenes.
