    Post-doctoral fellow, Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory, WPI (Troy lab)

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow

    The Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory is seeking a talented and motivated individual to join several projects focused on the biomechanics of bone adaptation. The long-term goal is to develop and assess physical activity-based interventions to improve bone strength, by understanding how bone is loaded in vivo, and quantifying changes to bone structure noninvasively. The projects involve high resolution pQCT image collection, finite element analysis, motion capture and whole-body biomechanics, working with human subjects, and potentially musculoskeletal modeling. Additional opportunity exists to collaborate on a project related to skeletal injury biomechanics, funded by the United States Army. The ideal candidate would have a strong interest in obtaining independent research funding, such as an NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship. More information about the Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Laboratory is available at: http://wp.wpi.edu/mbl/

    Funding is available for 12 months. Start date: no later than January, 2018.

    Qualifications:
    - Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering, Biomechanics, or a related field
    - excellent written and oral English language communication skills
    - strong interpersonal skills
    - an interest in bone adaptation and musculoskeletal biomechanics
    - prior experience with mechanical testing, finite element modeling and/or computer programming is highly desirable
    - interest in working with human subjects in a clinical research setting is essential
    - To participate in the Army project, applicants must be a US Citizen or permanent resident
