Other must haves:
1) Technical Competency
Understanding and applying appropriate ergonomic principles and analysis tools to achieve a safe, usable and efficient human centered design is critical to this position. The successful candidate must be able to assess whether single tasks fall within human capabilities and limitations, and the workplace context to enable populations to accomplish a particular set of goals, and manage musculoskeletal risk. The successful candidate must be able to use systematic procedures, principles, and techniques in developing and combining tasks into jobs to make them safe, efficient, effective, and manage musculoskeletal risk.
2) Digital Human Modeling
The successful candidate must have at least some experiences as a digital human modeling user. The applications may include Jack (preferred), Santos, UM 3D SSPP.
The candidate will be working on redesigning existing workstations and buildings to reduce musculoskeletal risk and optimize human performance. In order to do this, they must have experience: (1) measuring force data in the field using direct measurement devices, (2) be able to analyze the data using applicable statistics, (3) model the work environment using digital human modeling CAD applications.
The scope of the potential projects is broad and changing so I can't give you one specific item. I would share an example work product but they are Amazon confidential and we cannot pass them externally.
