Post-Doc : Evolution of hominin walking and running using biomechanics and musculoskeletal modeling (Glendale)

Logo Midwestern University

The O’Neill Lab in the Department of Anatomy at Midwestern University (Arizona) invites applicants for an NSF-funded Postdoctoral Fellowship, specializing in biomechanics and paleoanthropology. The anticipated start date of the appointment is July 1, 2021. The initial appointment is for one year, renewable annually for two additional years contingent on performance. The Postdoctoral Fellow will contribute to NSF-funded research investigating the evolution of hominin walking and running using a combination of gait biomechanics and musculoskeletal modeling-simulation. The project is part of an ongoing collaboration between Midwestern University (O’Neill Lab) and the University of Michigan (Umberger Lab). The project will include collection of lab-based biomechanical data, including 3-D video, force platform, electromyography and respirometry data, as well as musculoskeletal modeling and the development of new computational tools using SIMM, OpenSim and MATLAB. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in data collection, analysis, presentation and publication of results, student mentoring and community outreach. There will also be opportunities to participate in the service and teaching mission of the Department of Anatomy.
