    Postdoctoral Position in Computational Foot & Ankle Biomechanics - Hospital for Special Surgery - New York, NY, USA

    The Biomechanics Department of the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is seeking candidates for a three-year postdoctoral position in Computational Foot & Ankle Biomechanics. The selected candidate will be involved in basic science and translational research projects in total ankle arthroplasty and progressive collapsing foot deformity. Responsibilities will include developing finite element and multibody dynamics musculoskeletal models to integrate with experimental data collected from human subject and cadaver testing. Mentoring and training will be provided by the Biomechanics staff at the hospital in collaboration with orthopaedic surgeons from the Foot & Ankle Service, biostatisticians, and radiologists, providing a multidisciplinary experience. Possibilities exist for NIH support through a T32 training program at the Hospital, and the TL1/KL2 program at Weill Cornell Medical College’s Clinical and Translational Science Center for applicants who are citizens of the United States or green card holders.

    The ideal candidate would have a strong mechanical engineering background including CAD (Solidworks preferred), finite element modeling (Abaqus preferred), multibody dynamics modeling (ADAMS preferred), MATLAB, image processing, and must possess excellent communication and team science skills.

    Salary is competitive and will depend on the experience level of the candidate.

    HSS is a world leader in the fields of Orthopedics, Rheumatology, and related disciplines.
    HSS is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
