A postdoc position in computational biomechanics is available at the BioDynamics Laboratory directed by Dr. Alex Zhou. The lab’s research is focused on computational biomechanics, human-robot/exoskeleton interaction, and personalized medicine. The ideal candidates shall have strong background and experience in one of the following areas: computational biomechanics, numerical methods (e.g. FEM or meshfree methods), and biorobotics. Candidates with experience in one or multiple areas above and interest in studying tissue biomechanics and injury are encouraged to apply.
- Conduct research related to human biomechanics and injury
- Write technical reports and publish results in peer reviewed journal articles
- Present research results at conferences
- Collaborate with group members and other scientists at NJIT and externally
- Assist the PI with mentoring graduate and undergraduate students
A PhD in Mechanical, Biomedical, Computer Engineering, or a related field. Candidate’s PhD must be completed by the postdoctoral appointment start date.
The successful candidate will have expertise in computational methods, biomechanical modeling and simulations. Good programming skills (C/C++, or Python) or experience in developing numerical computation or physical simulation codes are highly desired.
Special Instructions to Applicants:
Please submit a cover letter and curriculum vitae listing all peer reviewed publications. Please include contact information for at least two references. Questions may be directed to Dr. Zhou via email (with the subject "Postdoc Position Biomechanics"): firstname.lastname@example.org.
