The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance at Stanford University has established a new position in our Human Performance Laboratory, which is directed by Professor Scott Delp. The research engineer will work with a talented team of faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students to advance our understanding of human movement through state-of-the-art experiments and biomechanical simulation.
The Research Engineer will conduct world-class research in the Human Performance Lab on projects related to the Human Performance Alliance research priorities, such as revealing the mechanisms of peak performance, preventing sports-related injuries, accelerating rehabilitation from injuries, and building engineering tools and data sets that advance the field.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Kinesiology or related field, including research experience in experimental analysis of human movement and a strong record of scientific publications. Experience with motion capture, wearable sensors, metabolic measurements, strength assessment, data acquisition, EMG recordings, programming in Matlab and/or Python, and excellent communication skills and analytical skills are also required for the position.
