  • Postdoctoral position: Development of a clinical method to estimate in-vivo joint loading during physical exercises - School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences, University of Essex, United Kingdom

    We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow (Grade 8, 33,797 per annum), willing to work at the intersection of musculoskeletal (finite element) modelling, machine (deep) learning, and musculoskeletal bone health. The candidate will be working on a two-year (24 month) funded project by the Academy of Medical Sciences (AMS), UK; looking into how wearable sensors can be harnessed with MSK modelling to estimate joint loading during physical activities. You will be mentored by a highly interdisciplinary and experienced team: Dr Bernard Liew (University of Essex, UK), Dr Andrew Phillips (Imperial College, UK), Dr Xiaojun Zhai (University of Essex, UK) and Dr Jason Moran (University of Essex, UK). In addition to working on this project, there will be numerous opportunities for professional growth and development at the University of Essex, including teaching, research supervision, grant application, and clinical/public outreach activities, to name a few.

    Criteria
    Essential:
    • PhD (or completion by Aug 2021) in the field of mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering or a related discipline with a specialization in biomechanics.
    • Experience in working with human participants
    • Experience in bone biomechanics research
    • Finite element modelling, material modelling, computer programming (e.g. C++, Matlab, Python)
    • Experience in commercial or non-commercial FEA and musculoskeletal modelling software (e.g. OpenSim, AnyBody, Abaqus)
    • Motion capture with surface electromyography data collection skills (e.g. Vicon, Qualisys)
    Preferred:
    • Experience in using wearable sensors for biomechanics data collection
    • Machine learning experience in Matlab, Python, R etc.

    Start date: Negotiable but no later than 30 August 2021 due to funder requirements.
    Duration: 2 years (full time)
    Location: Colchester Campus, Essex, UK
