The Musculoskeletal Research Center (MSRC) of the Department of
Orthopaedic Surgery is currently seeking candidates for two tenure
track, full-time faculty positions in Cartilage Biomechanics and
Upper Extremity/Hand Biomechanics at the Assistant/Associate
Professor level. Successful candidates will be expected to merit
secondary appointments in the School of Engineering. The MSRC was
established in 1990 for the purpose of developing integrated programs
in Orthopaedic education and research where engineers, scientists,
and physicians along with staff guide and teach quality students,
research fellows and residents.

1) Candidates for the Cartilage Biomechanics position must have a
Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biomedical, mechanical, or other
related engineering discipline is preferred. Engineering research
background in the following areas of specialization: mechanism of
cartilage fluid/solid interface, biomechanical testing of cartilage
and meniscus using confined an unconfined compression, and
computational techniques for appropriate analyses. Cellular and
functional tissue engineering will be helpful.

2) Candidates for the Upper Extremity/Hand Biomechanics position must
have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biomedical, mechanical or other
related engineering discipline is preferred. Engineering research
background in one or more of the following areas of specialization:
computer visualization and computational modeling, analyses of joint
kinematics, characterization of ligaments and tendons, and
biomechanical testing.

Successful applicants at the Assistant Professor level will be
expected to pursue independent research as well as collaborate with
current clinical faculty. Guidance and help will be provided to
successfully seek extramural funding. More senior candidates are
expected to have demonstrated a record of original research and
funding.

It is also expected that successful candidates will teach regularly
scheduled courses and supervise undergraduate and graduate students.

Qualified applicants should forward a comprehensive curriculum vitae
and three letters of recommendation to:
Savio L-Y. Woo, Ph.D., D.Sc.
Ferguson Professor and Director
