Postdoctoral fellowship in design of novel shock absorption materials for head impacts in hockey
École de technologie supérieure Position We are looking forward to recruiting a postdoctoral fellow as part of our team working on a funded industrial partnership project to develop novel materials for the design of hockey helmets. The internship is for a period of one year with possibility of renewal. Mandate The candidate's mandate will be to: 1) use the FEM developed in the framework of this project to develop detailed specifications defining the ideal dynamic behavior of absorbing materials composing hockey helmets;2) transmit the technical specifications to the industrial partners who will propose new chemical formulations of polymeric foams and manufacture samples that will be tested by the candidate in order to identify the best candidate materials; 3) use The FEM to simulate and predict the behaviour of helmets made from these candidate materials and identify the optimal configurations of foam assemblies that will be used to manufacture helmet prototypes to be tested according to the prescribed standards. The candidate must also write technical reports and scientific publications related to the work carried out. Desired qualities The recruited person must hold a doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent) in mechanical engineering, health technologies or equivalent with a particular orientation in polymeric absorbing materials. The candidate should have advanced knowledge and experience in explicit finite element modeling and simulation of systems including nonlinear and viscoelastic materials. Good knowledge of the issue of head impacts as well as of the Altair Hyperworks platform are assets. The recruited person must have excellent skills in multidisciplinary teamwork, and in written and oral communication of scientific works.
Interested candidates should forward a letter of interest, curriculum vitae and the name of two references.

PhD scholarship: Integrating 4D Synchrotron Imaging and Computational Modeling
Queensland University of Technology We are offering a PhD scholarship at Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Australia for the development of “A novel platform for investigating osteoporosis treatment: integrating 4D synchrotron imaging and computational modeling”. The project is a collaboration between Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and University of Saskatchewan (USASK). We seek to better understand how cortical bone is affected by osteoporosis and drug treatments. Longitudinal experimental data in a rabbit model of osteoporosis will be collected by Prof David Cooper (USASK) at the Canadian Synchrotron. The successful PhD candidate will use machine learning algorithms to assess morphological changes in cortical bone and to track bone remodeling units over time using co-registration techniques based on provided synchrotron imaging data. Additionally, the candidate will develop a state-of-the-art model of bone adaptation.
The PhD student will be supervised by Professor Peter Pivonka and the USASK collaborator Professor David Cooper. The student will work in Professor Pivonka’s lab at Gardens Point Campus as part of the ARC ITTC for Joint Biomechanics.
The stipend offered for this 3-year scholarship (with possible extension for 6 months if required) will be at the APA rate of $28,106 p.a. Both Australian and international applicants are welcome to apply. However, this scholarship does not cover university tuition fees for international students, and international students may need to apply for a tuition fee scholarship at QUT, if successful in winning the scholarship.
Essential criteria: An undergraduate degree with first or second class division 1 Honours in medical physics, biomechanics, mechanical engineering, or a related discipline; eligibility for admission to the PhD program at QUT; Good knowledge of image- segmentation and analysis; excellent programming skills; excellent communication skills (written and verbal) in English including meeting English requirement skills;
Post-doctoral Fellowship in Computational, Experimental, and Clinical Knee Biomechanics
Hospital for Special Surgery Immediate opening for a Post-doctoral Fellow in Multidisciplinary Knee Biomechanics Research. The fellow will integrate computational, statistical, and experimental models and clinical biomechanical data. The position entails multiple efforts spanning biomechanics of TKR (50% effort), surgical planning for ACL reconstruction (25% effort), and reproducibility in modeling and simulation of the natural knee (25% effort).
Postdoctoral Scholar in bioMechanics Experimental and Computational Health Lab (bMECH)
Univ California Riverside The bMECH lab at UCR's Department of Mechanical Engineering/BREATHE Center in the School of Medicine is looking for two postdoctoral scholars to join our research program on lung biomechanics. Candidates must have a strong background in soft tissue biomechanics, constitutive modeling, computational mechanics, finite element analysis, and optimization schemes. Project focuses on inverse finite element modeling using digital image correlation experimental data from pig, mice, and human lungs to construct a virtual digital twin of the lungs.
Individuals will have access to state of the art equipment and facilities. UCR is a rapidly growing R1 institution -most recently adding the Multidisciplinary Research Building ($150M).
The individual will be expected to help guide graduate and undergraduate students in their research, participate in the preparation and submission of manuscripts and proposals, present results at scientific conferences, and prepare reports for funded projects. A successful candidate will have a strong track record of publications, ability to lead projects, and eagerness to work in a highly collaborative environment. Link: bmech.ucr.edu
PHd scholarship in Biomedical Engineering. BioEngineering lab, University of Seville, Spain
School of Engineerin, University of Seville The Bioengineering Lab at the University of Seville is a multidisciplinary team of professors, senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and students. We have a strong track record in solving challenges at the interface between mechanics, biology and physics in an effort to translate solutions from the bench to the bedside. We have extensive on-campus collaborations with other groups as well as external collaborations with leading Spanish and research labs in the USA and Europe.
Summary of the project: The main goal of the research project is to develop an in vivo, ex vivo and in silico platform to provide an enhanced understanding of changes in bone mechanobiology during osteoporotic distraction osteogenesis and fracture healing. In particular, we want to evaluate the complex changes in tissue composition and bone architecture during these bone regeneration processes in a single animal osteoporotic model with a multiple study which allows obtaining: (1) mechanical parameters in vivo (force through the defect, stiffness), (2) local mechanical properties ex vivo (elastic modulus), (3) quantifiable structural and compositional heterogeneity in the newly formed bone (bone volume, rate of production of bone tissue, bone mineral density etc) and (4) alterations in the collagen network of bone. From a computational point of view, a multiscale methodology is proposed to be developed to investigate the relationship between changes in bone microstructure (collagen network) and the macroscopic mechanical properties during DO osteoporosis.
PhD position in Spine Biomechanics (FEA)
Institute of Orthopaedic Research and Biomechanics Ulm, Ulm University The aim of the project is to improve existing finite element models in our working group and to adapt them to specific problems. The numerical models are used to investigate the cause and orthopaedic treatment of spinal diseases. The work takes place in close cooperation with colleagues who analyse similar questions in vitro, as well as other research groups, industrial partners and physicians.
