Post-doctoral Research Assistant Assegno Di Ricerca Post-dottorato

DURATION: 24 months.

TOPIC: Design of innovative helmets for motorcyclists.

ABSTRACT: a position is vacant within a research project supported by the CARIPARO foundation. The project is on the design of innovative helmets for motorcyclists [1-3] and is based on a strict collaboration between the Department of Industrial Engineering and the Department of Neurosciences at Padova university; the company Dainese SpA is also involved.

The vacancy is within the engineering branch of the project: we are looking for an expert in the Finite Element Method, someone who is able to work with commercial software, complex models and with a large number of degrees of freedom. The candidate will be more involved in the engineering side of the research but s/he will nonetheless be expected to collaborate with medical doctors and biomechanics experts. The candidate will generate models of the new helmet liner concepts, of the helmets, couple them with head models and virtually test them. S/He will collaborate with the other researchers on the project for the definition of the constitutive material properties and will interact with Dainese's staff whenever necessary.
