The NCSRR visiting scholars program is a unique experience that fosters expertise and collaborations in biomechanical simulations for rehabilitation research.
Through the visiting scholars program, NCSRR seeks to attract energetic and talented scholars from computer science, biomechanics, physical therapy and other fields to become experts in biomechanical simulation and the needs of the rehabilitation community.
Each year up to four individuals will be chosen to visit NCSRR at Stanford University for a 10-week period from mid-June to late-August. Each visiting scholar will receive a $12,000 stipend, plus up to $3000 for travel expenses. During their visits, awardees will receive training and mentoring to help them reach their research goals. They will have the opportunity to participate in formal meetings, discussions with OpenSim experts, and brainstorming sessions with their fellow visiting scholars to advance their research and the OpenSim project.
The visiting scholars will be located together at Stanford University’s interdisciplinary research building, the Clark Center, which is centrally located relative to the School of Medicine and the School of Engineering.
The visiting scholars program is aimed at post-doctoral fellows and faculty members, but doctoral students are welcome to apply.
