POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP POSITION

A two-year postdoctoral fellowship position is currently available at
the Human Mobility Research Centre, Queen's University, Kingston,
Ontario, Canada.

We are seeking applicants with (or who will soon have) an earned Ph.D in
Computing Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, or Mechanical
Engineering. The successful candidate will work with the
Computer-Assisted Orthopaedic Surgery Group in developing ways to
improve primary repair of bone and joint fractures using 3D
visualisation techniques and segment tracking. The ideal candidate
would be familiar with the engineering design process, be comfortable in
a computing-intensive environment, and have experience with experimental
research. The ability to work effectively in a multidisciplinary team
and the ability to communicate well both verbally and in writing are
essential requirements.

The Human Mobility Research Centre (HMRC) brings together a world-class
team of over twenty-five researchers to improve human mobility through
the development of innovative and effective treatment strategies for
bone and joint disorders caused by arthritis, osteoporosis, and injury.
HMRC is a partnership between Queen's University and Kingston General
Hospital, and serves as a point of collaboration between the disciplines
of medicine, engineering, health sciences and information technology to
foster innovation through collaborative research projects.

HMRC is a Queen's University research centre located in Kingston General
Hospital. This unique setting provides opportunities for university
faculty, health care professionals, and students to engage in
collaborative, interdisciplinary musculoskeletal research.

The Centre's research program is focused on developing early detection
and early intervention approaches and technologies to treat arthritis,
osteoporosis, and bone and joint injuries using a strategy that
integrates mechanical design, biological approaches, and information.

Applicants should submit a CV and the names of three references by
September 1, 2002, to:
