Movement is essential to human and animal life. Diagnosing and treating movement-related disorders involves expertise from diverse disciplines: rehabilitation & medicine, orthopedics, neurology, biomechanics and mechanical engineering, to name a few. Open source software and tools unify and consolidate resources, share know-how and benefit a much broader community, which is just good science.
Thanks to an award from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative for Essential Open Source Software for Science (CZI-EOSS), and building on our past successes, we can continue to transform OpenSim over the next two years. Therefore, we are seeking a passionate software developer/engineer/biomechanist to apply their strong analytical and programming skills to the betterment of human health and understanding through OpenSim. You are excited to convert research into effective tools by generating reusable and efficient code and you enjoy teaming up with multidisciplinary experts to implement high-performance models and algorithms. You take pride in developing and deploying open source software as the primary vehicle for disseminating powerful new tools to a community of mobility researchers and clinicians.
We believe that the best work is done by diverse teams. If you're a member of a traditionally underrepresented group and/or have a diverse career path or background, then you are particularly encouraged to apply. Is your C++ a little rusty? Maybe you haven’t worked with a dynamics engine before? You do not need to have all the qualifications and experience from day one. You can and will receive on-the-job training based on your background: from software engineering and continuous integration to formulations of multibody dynamics and muscle mechanics. You must be absolutely excited about and engaged in software and/or algorithm development.
Nice to have experience with:
