  • Postdoctoral Scholar in Sports and Orthopedic Biomechanics at the University of Kentucky

    The Biomotion laboratory at the University of Kentucky ( has an opportunity for an individual interested in orthopedic and sports biomechanics in individuals. Our work centers around uncovering mechanisms for protracted impairments following orthopaedic injuries and developing novel therapeutic interventions. We use a variety of techniques ranging from magnetic resonance imaging to 3D biomechanics. We study injuries ranging from anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions, patellofemoral pain to osteoarthritis and lower extremity trauma.

    The person in this position must have a Ph.D. in biomechanics, engineering or related field as well as have strong written, oral, and programming skills (Matlab, visual 3D).

    The person in this position will receive mentorship from our team of clinician scientists and engineers with funding from the NIH, DOD and foundation grants. There are numerous opportunities for professional growth and development on our team. We provide weekly individual mentorship meetings, group meetings, and work closely with both the Departments of Physical Therapy and Orthopedic Surgery. We strive to foster an inclusive community of people passionate about how to best improve outcomes for individuals with knee and hip injuries. Primary mentorship will be offered through Mike Samaan Ph.D. and Brian Noehren PT, Ph.D.
