Postdoctoral Fellowship at Stanford University - Human Performance Laboratory

A team of faculty at Stanford University, led by Professor Scott Delp, is accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in biomechanical engineering and human performance science. Candidates are expected to have a PhD in a related discipline and experience with motion capture technology and biomechanical analysis. Individuals with backgrounds in biomechanics, neuroscience, biomedical informatics, robotics, and computer science are all welcome to apply. The position will be in the Human Performance Lab at Stanford, which is affiliated with the Neuromuscular Biomechanics Lab and the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance

We are searching for outstanding individuals to join our team and develop new methods to measure, simulate, and analyze human movement. Our approach will leverage novel data sources, such as real-world wearable sensors and video, experimental analysis, biomechanical modeling, and state-of-the-art models of neural control. Funding is available to support fellows for two or more years. Fellows will have the opportunity to build an interdisciplinary scientific network, participate in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, and present their work at international scientific meetings.

Candidates must have: 

  • A PhD in engineering, computer science, neuroscience, or related fields
  • Strong record of publication and excellent communication skills
  • Experience in biomechanics experiments and modeling
