research and from user-driven product development. This PhD project
will deal with the development of mathematical models to predict
natural human motions for various tasks. We seek candidates who are
interested in modeling, simulation, and control of large multi-body
dynamic systems.

Preferred Qualifications: BS (or MS) in biomechanics, biomedical
engineering, mechanical engineering, robotics or a related discipline.
Interests in computer programming and optimization are highly
desirable. An ideal candidate should be enthusiastic and highly
motivated with excellent organisational and interpersonal skills.

Admission to the graduate program (Biomedical engineering preferred)
in the College of Engineering is a requirement and students are
encouraged to apply directly on the graduate school website
(http://www.uiowa.edu/admissions/graduate/colleges/engineering.htm).
