What are the biomechanical differences between a successful baseball pitcher and one that ends up in surgery? What are the kinematic and kinetic demands to be considered by an orthopaedic surgeon or physical therapist when treating an athlete’s injured knee? The American Sports Medicine Institute (www.asmi.org) has had significant impact answering questions like these, but there is still much more work to be done.
ASMI is a non-profit organization with a mission to improve the understanding, prevention, and treatment of sports-related injuries through research and education. ASMI is currently looking for a biomechanist to join our team in conducting biomechanical research as well as evaluating baseball pitchers and other athletes. This is a permanent, full-time position in Birmingham, Alabama.
Candidate should hold a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree (preferred) in biomechanics or a related field. Experience with motion capture (preferably Motion Analysis Corporation) and expertise in programming (Visual Basic, C++, Matlab, Sky Script) are highly desired. Interest/knowledge in sports, electromyography, cadaver joint biomechanics, and statistics are also helpful.
To apply for this position, please email a cover letter and résumé to email@example.com. Be sure to include your salary requirements and the names, titles and email addresses for three references.
