The position is NASA–funded, and involves biomechanical modeling of ocular structures involved in VIIP syndrome (  Specific duties include: extracting relevant information from clinical images; integrating an ocular biomechanical model with a whole-body fluid shift model being developed at NASA; analyzing experimental and numerical results; writing papers; and assisting with grant preparation. The position is available immediately, for a duration of approximately two years. Applicants should have: a PhD in biomechanics or closely related field; experience with medical image processing; experience with finite element modeling of connective tissue biomechanics; experience with construction of complex geometric models for finite element modeling; experience with tissue constitutive relationships. Interest and willingness to participate in an interdisciplinary research team is essential.


To apply for this position, please contact Prof. C. Ross Ethier,, via email using the subject: Ocular Biomechanics Post-Doc. Applicants must include, as a single pdf file, a cover letter with a short statement of purpose, a full resume, and names of three references. Further information about the lab is available at .
