POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN MUSCULOSKELETAL BIOMECHANICS

BONE & JOINT CENTER
HENRY FORD HOSPITAL

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral fellowship position within the
Bone and Joint Center Research Laboratories at Henry Ford Hospital. The
candidate will be part of a collaborative group of investigators that
includes CM Les, DVM, PhD, Head, Section of Anatomy, GJ Gibson, PhD, Head,
Section of Cell Biology and DP Fyhrie, Director of Research, Bone and Joint
Center. The research team has expertise in and facilities for biomechanics,
computational mechanics, motion analysis, animal models, anatomy, cell
biology, histology, biochemistry and molecular biology.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering or
a related field. Research experience in musculoskeletal biomechanics is
desired. Developed skills in one or more areas of finite element analysis,
computer programming and mechanical testing are desirable. Duties and
responsibilities, under minimal supervision, will include, 1) conducting
