Posted: Apr 21, 2021

Weekly Hours: 40

Role Number:200240925

At Apple's Biomechanics Research Center we bring together area specialists in a best-in-class research facility to deliver science-backed design insights for the development of hardware products. In this role you'll design and carry out innovative, rigorous experiments that drive systematic, iterative product design. We're looking for researchers who are ready to be experienced collaborators on an interdisciplinary team answering tough questions about physical interaction with Apple products. The Applied Biomechanics Researcher will bring the expertise to make the principles and techniques of biomechanics a part of development of future products.

Key Qualifications

  • Collaboration within interdisciplinary teams.
  • Hands on experience with one or more experimental methods to study human movement (such as motion capture, electromyography (EMG), force/pressure instrumentation)
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Excellent writing and interpersonal skills
  • Scripting for scientific analysis (such as Matlab or Python)
  • Modeling and simulation (such as OpenSim, finite element analysis)

Description

The researcher will be responsible for framing research questions, conducting human studies, interpreting results, and communicating meaningful insights. The ideal researcher is expected to balance scientific curiosity and engineering practicality, and be comfortable working hands-on with prototypes. The researcher will be expected to work with mechanical, electrical, and soft goods engineers on building novel and custom instrumentations. The researcher needs to be able to gather and synthesize robust biomechanics data with subjective participant feedback, creatively adapting research methods when needed. The researcher needs to be highly skilled in data analysis and interpretation. An in-depth understanding of and broad appreciation for physics and human biology is a must-have. Since this group will work directly with product designers, it's an essential skill for the researcher to communicate scientific findings in a concise and meaningful manner.

Education & Experience
- PhD or 5+ years research experience in an engineering or science field with biomechanics specialization (such as musculoskeletal mechanics, soft tissue mechanics, injury/rehabilitation, exoskeletons, or assistive devices)
- Coursework in mechanics, statistics, modeling and simulation
