> Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Cell and Tissue Engineering
> Laboratory for Soft Tissue Research
> Hospital for Special Surgery, New York City
> The Laboratory for Soft Tissue Research is seeking a post-doctoral
> candidate to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in
> injury and repair of cartilage. Specific areas of research investigation
> include mechanochemical signal transduction in cartilage, mechanical
> trauma to joints, tissue engineered cartilage, and imaging of cartilage
> (MRI/NMR, FTIR). The laboratory is also involved in the development of
> novel biological and bioengineering approaches for the replacement and
> repair of damaged soft tissues, including ligament, meniscus and tendon.
> Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. in engineering or the physical
> sciences (e.g., engineering, biophysics, physical chemistry, etc.).
> Knowledge of cell and tissue engineering are desirable but not necessary.
> The LSTR is multidisciplinary with expertise in biochemistry,
> immunohistochemistry, cell physiology, gene therapy, and bioengineering.
> The LSTR is affiliated and collaborates with the Department of
> Orthopaedics of the Weil Medical College of Cornell University, the
> Biomedical Engineering Center at the City College of New York, the
> Department of Physics at Fordham University, and the NMR Unit at the
> National Institute on Aging. Opportunities for collaborative research and
> teaching exist. It is desirable that applicants for the post-doctoral
> position be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency, and be fluent in
> English. A curriculum vitae and the names and email addresses of three
> references should be sent to:
> Peter A. Torzilli, Ph.D.
