The Neuromechanics Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder, in conjunction with Northwestern University and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on a new research project investigating motor control in a neuroeconomic framework. The project will focus on the role of risk and the subjective valuation of reward in sensorimotor decision-making and control. Candidates will take part in computational modeling of motor control, and the design and supervision of psychophysical experiments.
will perform research and development in finite element of soft
materials such as prostate, tumour, and liver. You will also develop new
numerical models and methods for solving soft material non-linear

2-D "tension-shear chain" model (Ref.1-3) is well known successfully capturing the basic mechanical features of staggered structures in shell-like biomaterials. Our recent paper appeared in Comp. Sci. Tech. developed a three-dimensional (3D) "tension-shear chain" theoretical model to predict the mechanical properties of unidirectional short fiber reinforced composites, and especially to investigate the distribution effect of short fibers.
The soft materials mechanics laboratory invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of computational biomechanics. The postdoctoral researcher will be involved in a funded project to develop a computational model of the eye to investigate the injury mechanisms caused by the primary blast wave. The project involves developing numerical methods for fluid-structure interaction and constitutive modeling of the damage and failure mechanisms of collagenous tissues. An initial appointment will be for a 12-month period with future renewal contingent on performance. Salary will be based on the level of experience. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

I must apologise in advance if this is a silly question—I'm a biologist, not an engineer. I am using FEA for a zoological biomechanics project to model structural performance of certain skeletal elements, and I have observed that, in one particularly spring-like bone, internal strain energy is tightly inversely correlated with resonant/natural frequency (free-free analysis in Abaqus). Is this relationship obvious to an engineer? In particular, is this relationship predicted by the equations describing springs or such things as tuning forks (formula given on this Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuning_fork)?
