    Researcher - Biomechanics and Human Factors (Contract, Onsite Seattle WA USA)


    Job Description

    This position will support the Meta Reality Labs Pathfinding UXR team. In this role, you will help explore input devices for the next generation of computing with a focus on physical comfort, biomechanics, and human factors. You will play an active role in planning and running research studies in a research laboratory. The role will require technical competence in data collection and processing of biomechanical time series data, such as kinematics, EMG, and force data. This position will support multiple programs and research in the Augmented and Virtual Reality domains.



    Job Responsibilities:
    • Design, plan and conduct studies to assist the explorations in next generation computing to understand how computer users may be impacted by novel computer experiences
    • Collect and analyze biomechanical and physiological test data to understand the user’s experience and point of view
    • Develop and execute scripts to analyze and interpret time-series data.
    • Set up, maintain research laboratory equipment, computer software, and lab supplies.
    • Document, synthesize and present data
    • Conduct literature reviews to self educate, and to help educate others
    • Integrate and synchronize research equipment and with new technologies
    • Ensure that participants are safe and comfortable during research studies
    • Reports to UX Research Scientist
    • Knowledge, Skills and Competencies:
    • Human research experience required
    • Consumer product development related research experience preferred
    • Knowledge and understanding of kinematics, forces, and electromyography (EMG) data.
    • Understanding of human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanical analysis tools and techniques.
    • 2+ years lab experience: data collection (calibration, recording data, and processing) and data analysis
    • Experience with these types of data: mechanical, biomechanical, anthropometrical, animation, perception and physiological data
    • Experience with these sensors: three dimensional motion capture, forceplates, strain gauges, accelerometers, pressure sensors, electromyography, etc…
    • Ability to program in a computer language (e.g. Matlab/Python/R) to filter, visualize and process data, especially in three dimensions
    • Ability to write and execute scripts in C-Motion Visual 3D
    • Ability to design and conduct statistical tests, and program in a statistical software package (e.g. SAS, JMP, R).
    • Ability to synthesize data and write test results in a clear and concise manner.
    • Preference for a record of presenting and publishing experiments in journals and/or at scientific conferences


    Education:

    Masters or Doctorate Degree or equivalent experience in fields such as: Biomechanics, Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Kinesiology, Exercise Science.
