Postdoctoral Researcher or Research Engineer in Computational Modeling of Traumatic Brain Injury
Description: The Injury Biomechanics Laboratory at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, PA has two positions open for a Postdoctoral Researcher and/or Research Engineer in the area of computational biomechanics. This individual will be involved in the development of high-fidelity finite element head models to advance our understanding of both blunt impact and blast-induced traumatic brain injury. This research is part of a large interdisciplinary research collaboration focused on the detection and prevention of traumatic brain injuries and involves multiple universities, industrial partners, and national labs.
Qualifications: M.S. (Research Engineer) or Ph.D. (Postdoctoral Researcher) in mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, or related field. A strong background in finite element modeling and computational methods is required, with a strong interest in working on an interdisciplinary collaborative team.
If interested, please send an email to Dr. Rika Carlsen (email@example.com) with your cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of 2 references, and a 1-page research statement describing your research experience and research interests. Applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled.
