Is rotator cuff surgery strong enough for the demands of baseball pitching? Is meniscal repair necessary to stabilize injured knees of basketball players? The American Sports Medicine Institute is a non-profit organization with a mission to improve the understanding, prevention, and treatment of sports-related injuries through research and education. ASMI has enjoyed great success in its mission, but there are many more questions to answer.
ASMI is currently looking for a researcher to conduct studies on biomechanics of cadaveric specimens. Successful candidate will also assist with motion analysis of throwing and other athletic activities. This is a permanent, full-time position at ASMI in Birmingham, Alabama.
Candidate should hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in biomedical engineering, biomechanics, or a related field. Experience with cadaver joint biomechanics is required; experience with MTS system is preferred.
