Assistant/Associate/Full Specialist - OrthoCap Research Project
OrthoCap is a research project within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery focused on capturing patient biomechanical assessments and other digitally derived data remotely using a mobile application. Our research team seeks a highly motivated, dynamic individual with experience in coding and human motion analysis for the position of Assistant/Associate/Full Specialist. This individual will contribute to the development and implementation of our remote patient outcomes mobile application for monitoring post-treatment orthopaedic recovery. This individual will 1) create a pipeline for collecting digital health data, 2) project manage early clinical studies using app on post-operate orthopaedic surgery patients, and 3) develop optimized approaches for deriving reliable skeletal tracking from video-based motion capture. This position will interact with a multi-disciplinary team of investigators, including basic scientists, data scientists, engineers and orthopaedic surgeons, with primary supervision from Dr. Jeannie Bailey, PhD, in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
Interested applicants must have outstanding interpersonal and organizational skills, an active interest in developing new and optimized approaches to motion capture using a mobile app, and the capacity to communicate effectively between interdisciplinary team members and stakeholders.
What you'll achieve:
* Working with app developers to create and optimize motion capture interface with instructions
* Creating analytical pipeline and database for app derived biomechanical data
* Administrative functions and maintenance of research studies using the mobile app
* Work closely with researchers, surgeons, and app developers.
Specialists appointed at the Assistant rank must possess a master's degree or a baccalaureate degree with 3 or more years of research experience. Specialists appointed at the Associate rank must possess a master's degree (or equivalent degree) or five to ten years of experience in the relevant specialization.
