Vacancy (Research Scholarship Scheme)

Project Title: Prediction of running efficiency and injury prevention among Malaysian amateur runners: a musculoskeletal modelling approach.
Location: Sungai Long campus
Appointment Duration: 1 year
No. of Vacancy: 1 (one)
Stipend: RM 2,000 per month
Education Level: B. ENG (HONOURS) BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
Specific Skills / Knowledge Required:
  1. Biomechanics
Job Description:
  1. This is a collaboration project with Institut Sukan Negara (ISN). The student is required to build a musculoskeletal model to compute the joint kinematics and joint moment of lower extremities. The simulation results can be used in developing training protocol for amateur runners as well as in prediction of muscle excitation, force and mechanical work that could improve athlete’s running efficiency and injury prevention.
