Job Description

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in biomechanics? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading Universities in research and teaching excellence?

As a biomechanist you will work with a vibrant, dynamic research group who were ranked 1st for ‘World Leading’ 4* research in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), you will be embedded within Sports and Exercise Sciences in the School of Biomedical Sciences (SBMS) and will complement our exciting research portfolio.

Research in biomechanics spans both fundamental and applied research, covering a wide range of areas. Current studies are aimed at understanding how muscles are used during locomotion including the links between musculoskeletal design, locomotor performance and energetics. We also study the mechanics of lower limb function in sport and injury, the biomechanical impact of physical activity on prosthesis function, and rehabilitation following spinal cord injury. Current explorative innovations also include the development of predictive musculoskeletal computational models based on experimental input. 

To complement our existing research we welcome applications from candidates who have a research portfolio that includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:  

You should have a PhD in biomechanics or a closely allied discipline with a track record of research outputs in refereed publications of internationally excellent quality.
