The new National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) is now accepting applications for its visiting scholars program
NCSRR seeks to bring the power of engineering simulation to rehabilitation.  The Center has developed a state-of-the-art simulation tool – OpenSim (http://simtk.org/home/opensim) -  that is already used by hundreds of research teams around the world.  In addition, it provides training opportunities, seed grants, and a network of biomechanical and clinical experts to accelerate the integration of simulations into critical areas of rehabilitation.Our visiting scholars program is a unique experience that fosters expertise and collaborations in biomechanical simulations for rehabilitation research.   Each year up to four individuals will be chosen to visit NCSRR at Stanford University for a 10-week period from mid-June to late-August. Each visiting scholar will receive a $12,000 stipend, plus up to $3000 for travel expenses.  During their visits, awardees will receive training and mentoring to help them reach their research goals.  They will have the opportunity to participate in formal meetings, discussions with OpenSim experts, and brainstorming sessions with their fellow visiting scholars to advance their research and the OpenSim project.Applications are due on January 17, 2011.
