BIOMEDICAL POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITION

Description:
The Hand Biomechanics Laboratory in Sacramento, California
is pleased to announce a research training position. The
duties will include the engineering aspects of the
development of instrumentation and associated software on
the Etiology of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome project. As a
component of this project, the trainee will be exposed to
the broad range of problems of a clinical hand practice both
within the clinic and in surgery. This will include a
specific emphasis and training on the biomechanics of carpal
tunnel syndrome.

Duration of Training:
One year with the possibility of a second year extension.

Eligibility:
The applicants should be active scientists with a
committment to research and continued training in
biomechanics. The applicants must posses a PhD in an
engineering field with training and practical knowledge in
instrumentation, computer software development, and
biomechanics. Experience with MacIntosh computers is
desired as well as the ability to assist in experimental
work on cadavers. The applicant must be a US citizen.
Smoking is not permitted in the laboratory or associated
clinical area.

Resources:
The Hand Biomechanics Laboratory is a privately funded
research and development laboratory. The activities of the
Laboratory include the study of the biomechanics of the
wrist and hand joints and the design of improved devices for
hand function as well as the evaluation and proof of these
devices. The laboratory's success derives from its active
involvement in the patient care arena which results in an
appreciation of the clinical problems and the inadequacies
of current medical technology. The environment combines
patient care, research, and development, as well as the
design, manufacture, and marketing of medical devices. The
in-house machine shop and prototype labs combine to
facilitate the rapid development of prototypes and related
upper extremity instrumentation.
