Alliance Partnerships *
The Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance at Stanford
<http://humanperformance.stanford.edu> is seeking to recruit a highly
motivated Scientific Project Manager to conduct research on human
performance using machine learning and biomechanical modeling approaches.
The candidate will also serve as Project Manager for the Alliance
partnerships program. An additional, vital role will be building and
supporting a community that is using and contributing to our open-source
software and data sharing efforts.

This position requires a PhD in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering,
Computer Science, Statistics, or a related field, as well as excellent oral

*NIH-Funded Postdoctoral Position at the Rice Computational Neuromechanics
The Rice Computational Neuromechanics Lab directed by B.J. Fregly is
seeking to hire a creative and highly-motivated post-doctoral research
associate. The ideal candidate will hold a PhD degree in Mechanical
Engineering with a research focus on neuromusculoskeletal modeling,
simulation, and optimization.

The candidate will (1) contribute to the development, evaluation, and
testing of easy-to-use computational software for performing model
personalization and treatment optimization utilizing neuromusculoskeletal
computer models created in OpenSim and Matlab, (2) use the software to
develop personalized neuromusculoskeletal computer models of individuals
post-stroke and design optimal personalized neurorehabilitation
interventions, and (3) assist with the organization of an annual “Stroke
Grand Challenge Competition” to be held at the American Society of
Biomechanics annual conference.

Interested individuals are encouraged to e-mail a resume and a brief
statement explaining their interest to B.J. Fregly at fregly at rice.edu.
