Predictive Simulations of Walking


Tim Dorn, a previous Simbios postdoctoral fellow, has developed simulation
methods that can reproduce many of the salient changes observed in
experimental studies of loaded and inclined walking.  Watch the video

 <http://simtk.org/home/openmm> OpenMM 6.1 Released  

This latest version of our accelerated molecular dynamics code for GPUs
includes support for the AMOEBA 2013 force field, the CHARMM polarizable
force field, new types of virtual sites, and more.

Job Opening:
Mobility and Robotic Systems Section at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory 

Openings at multiple levels.  Candidates with Bachelors, Masters or Ph.D.s
are encouraged to apply. We will consider US persons (citizens or
permanent residents) for Bachelors and Master level candidates. Foreign
nationals with a Ph.D. are encouraged to apply. While the immediate
emphasis is on computational engineering, candidates with technical
expertise in different areas of robotics are encouraged to apply. 

Desired traits: *General understanding and application of standard
principles, theories, concepts and techniques in kinematics, dynamics and
control of robotic systems.  *High level of skill in use of C, C++ and
Python programming languages. *Candidates with a Ph.D. should have a
strong technical preparation and research interest in their respective
field of expertise substantiated by a strong publication record.
*Knowledge and experience with: modeling and simulation software
development, analysis of robotics systems, use & development of high
performance computing software.  Email
