Apply for NCSRR/OpenSim Visiting Scholars Program

Applications have opened for the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR)/OpenSim Visiting Scholars program to be held next summer at Stanford University. The program fosters expertise and collaborations in biomechanical simulations for rehabilitation research.

According to the announcement, up to four individuals will be chosen to visit the NCSRR at Stanford University for a 5-week period during the summer of 2016, from mid-June to mid-July.


Each visiting scholar will be reimbursed for their travel and living expenses up to $8,000. 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 Program is intended for faculty members and postdoctoral fellows with exceptional skills in biomechanics, simulation, and computer science, who will advance the field of movement science through the development of new software, biomechanical models, and outstanding research.

Applications are due on February 5, 2016. Read more and learn how to apply.
