The Centre for the Analysis of Motion, Entertainment Research and Applications (CAMERA) is an innovative EPSRC funded large-scale research collaboration between the Department of Computer Science, the Department for Health at the University of Bath and a range of external partners.

We are seeking to appoint a full-time Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in Clinical Gait Biomechanics in Rehabilitation. The successful candidate will work with other Biomechanists and Computer Scientists to translate computer science methods and techniques to analyse patient gait characteristics, provide biomechanical input and understanding for this process, liaise closely with external partners (e.g. Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre and Royal United Hospital), carry out research and publish relevant high quality peer-reviewed articles. The ultimate aim of this research theme is to develop quick and effective marker-less gait analysis techniques for clinical applications. Ideally, you will have a strong background in human gait biomechanics, preferably with some clinical knowledge or experience, and an understanding of human movement analysis techniques.
