POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITION
IN
CARDIOVASCULAR MECHANICS


A post-doctoral research associate is sought in the area of computational
cardiovascular biomechanics. The candidate should have a PhD in mechanical
engineering, biomechanics, or related field, and extensive experience in
three-dimensional reconstruction of anatomical structures from clinical
images (e.g., CT, MRI, etc.), nonlinear finite element analysis, finite
elasticity/continuum mechanics, etc. Preference will be given to those with
experience in the cardiovascular biomechanics area, especially in atrial
mechanics. Experience in experimentation (i.e., soft tissue constitutive
model development) is also desired. The ability and willingness to write
manuscripts and grant proposals is necessary.
