We are seeking a talented researcher with skills needed for investigating patient-specific biomechanical modelling approaches of the human spine. We aim to create a clinically useful simulation tool that enhances surgical planning. The post-doctoral fellow will work with our industry and academic partners to create, design and empirically evaluate innovative biomechanical models using the Artisynth platform.

The position is at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The ideal candidate should have skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:
Finite element analysis, multibody mechanics, and the associated mathematics;
Software development in Java, C++ or another object oriented language;
Muscle modeling and the biomechanics of the spine;
Statistical shape modeling and/or subject-specific model registration based on medical imaging data.


If you are ready to join our talented group of researchers, please contact Tom Oxland (toxland@mail.ubc.ca) with a curriculum vitae, a statement (1-2 pages) of technical interests and accomplishments, and names and addresses of three referees.
