  • PhD Position in Computational Biomechanics at West Virginia University

    The Neuromechanics of Mobility Laboratory at West Virginia University (WVU) is looking for a PhD student to join our lab in Summer or Fall 2020! The position comes with tuition and a competitive annual stipend.

    Research in our lab is focused on identifying how the neural, muscular, and skeletal systems interact for successful mobility, and how these interactions are affected due to aging, disease, and injury. Our work involves both laboratory-based human biomechanics experiments, and musculoskeletal modeling and simulation. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, and you will have collaborative and academic opportunities across the College of Engineering, Health Sciences Center, and the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute.

    Students with a background in Mechanical or Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, or related areas are encouraged to apply. Strong programming skills (e.g., Matlab, Python, or similar) and prior experience with computational analysis of human movement (e.g., SIMM, OpenSim, AnyBody, etc.) are an advantage.
