PhD position in life sciences / biology (Dr.rer.biol.hum.)

This position is assigned to the research group of Musculoskeletal Function and Mechanobiology (PD Dr. Anna-Maria Liphardt). Research in this study group focuses on the role of musculoskeletal function in patient cohorts and healthy individuals. We have a special interest in the role of immobility for musculoskeletal health, which we investigate in space flight related studies. We have national and international cooperation partners in academics and industry

Topic:

The project will focus on characterizing the musculoskeletal response of the human body to immobilization in bed rest, with a special focus on joint health.

  • collect and analyze research data (biomarker, imaging, life style, musculoskeletal function)
  • develop methods for an integrative data analysis of the newly acquired data

The main focus will be on a two 60-days bed rest studies, which is being conducted at different locations in the EU/US, funded by the European Space Agency and the German Aerospace Centre

We are looking for a

  • highly motivated creative doctoral candidate,
  • capable of working in an interdisciplinary team,
  • with an above-average master or comparable university qualification in sport/movement science, kinesiology, physiology, bio-/medical engineering, sports technology, biotechnology, life sciences, space life sciences, or similar fields
You should have a

  • high interest in statistical methods,
  • scientific writing and
  • be willing to travel frequently (within Europe and to the US).

Additionally advantageous

The candidate must have a

  • strong knowledge of musculoskeletal function, biostatistics and human movement & physiology and
  • interest in space physiology.
  • English language skills should allow for barrier free written and oral communication in English with international partners.

We offer

  • PhD student position
  • interdisciplinary research team
  • national and international collaborations
  • participation in an international space science research project
  • possibilities to join graduate schools, early career programs (e.g. Ariadne Med)
  • benefit from FAU graduate center

POSTDOC WITH FOCUS ON INJURY PREVENTION IN A RETURN-TO-SPORT CONTEXT

The focus of this position is on the biomechanical evaluation and further development of sports-specific virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) applications for orthopaedic (sports-)injuries. With the help of VR and MR applications, the interface between therapy and return-to-sport will be improved and their potential for sport-specific performance diagnostics evaluated.

  • Your main tasks:
    ▪ Acquisition, management and implementation of research projects within the framework of the research topic described above in close cooperation with the biomechanical measurement laboratory MOTUM – Human Performance Institute
    ▪ Participation in and management of courses at UMIT TIROL
    ▪ Supervision of students and doctoral candidates, especially on topics of sports medicine and injury prevention
    ▪ Supervision of students’ scientific theses
    ▪ Participation in university self-administration
  • Required qualifications:
    ▪ PhD in sports science, biomechanics, medical technology, human medicine, health sciences or comparable subjects with clear reference to sports medicine and injury prevention.
    ▪ Experience with biomechanical measurement methods (e.g. 3D motion capture, EMG, IMU, kinetics) and evaluation procedures in a clinical or applied sports science context
    ▪ International publication activity
    ▪ Interest in VR and MR applications
    ▪ Programming skills (Matlab, Python or similar)
