About Us

The BioDynamics Group at NJIT is focused on computational biomechanics and bioengineering, wearable robotics and exoskeletons, digital human modeling, and personalized medicine.

We aim to develop advanced computational methods and software to simulate and analyze biomechanical loadings in biosystems under normal, extreme or injurious conditions, design and evaluate wearable assistive devices, and develop protective or preventive measures and treatment options against injuries or diseases.


Postdoc Position

A new postdoc position is available on computational biomechanics for trauma or injury simulations, or control of wearable robots/exoskeletons. The ideal candidate shall have good background in one or more of the following areas: computational mechanics, meshless or particle methods, robot control and simulation, and deep learning. Candidates with good programming skills in C++/C#/Python are desired.
