Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Analysis of Human Motion with Ultrasound.

Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), University of Oxford

Oxford, South East England, United Kingdom

Salary: Grade 7: Salary in the range £32,236 - £35,211 p.a.

We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre (OOEC) at the Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences at the University of Oxford. The successful applicant will be part of an inter-disciplinary team of engineers and clinicians working on the research and development of a system for applications in clinical orthopaedics.

You will work on a project that aims to rapidly combine data from motion capture with data from multiple ultrasound probes in order to reconstruct bony motion. In addition, you will develop and test software for a novel motion capture system for measuring joint motion and analyse data captured. You will also contribute documented software and system design documents to the project, write up the results for conference and journal publication and perform occasional demonstrations to industrial or academic visitors, assisting informally with the supervision of graduate students conducting related research.

You will have a PhD (or be close to completion) in engineering, computer science, orthopaedic biomechanics, or a related technical field and experience of working with motion capture. You will have a demonstrated ability to program C/C++, Python and/or MATLAB to a high standard and competency in using different operating systems is essential. You must have excellent communication skills and also be willing to travel within and outside the UK to visit collaborating institutions. Experience in the analysis of ultrasound images, multi-modality data acquisition and fusion would be desirable.

This is a full time fixed-term appointment for 1 year.

You will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Wednesday 13 March 2019.
