POSITION IN SOFT TISSUE MUSCULOSKELETAL RESEARCH
Bone and Joint Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Henry Ford Health System

A Senior Bioscientific Staff position is available in the area of
Soft Tissue Musculoskeletal Research. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in
bioengineering, biology, anatomy or a related field with an emphasis on the
in vivo mechanical and biological behaviour of musculoskeletal soft tissues.

The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary team of five
independently NIH funded investigators, with complementary programs
examining various aspects of the musculoskeletal system. Clinical
collaborations are with a strong, active orthopaedics group. The Bone and
Joint Center has expertise and well-equipped facilities for motion analysis,
biomechanics, musculoskeletal modelling, computational mechanics, 3D
imaging, animal models, anatomy, cell biology, histology, biochemistry and
molecular biology. In addition to excellent conventional facilities for
supporting research in all of these areas, the researcher would have access
to a unique stereo X-ray system designed for human in vivo measurement of
bone, joint and soft tissue dynamics, with 3D accuracy of 0.1 mm and imaging
rates up to 1000 frames/second. Academic appointments (at the
assistant/associate/full professor level, depending on qualifications) are
available through our affiliation with nearby Wayne State University.

The applicant will be expected to develop an independent, NIH funded
research program and collaborate with other Bone and Joint Center
investigators. Preference will be given to applicants with:
- postdoctoral experience
- demonstrated research potential
- a record of scholarly activity including peer-reviewed publications
- a strong desire for multidisciplinary collaborations
- expertise in experimental measurement of soft tissue behaviour
- computational modelling skills

Applicants should send their resume, a statement of their current and
long-term research goals and the names and addresses of three references to
the address below. Consideration of applicants is already underway, and will
continue until the position is filled.

For those interested in learning more about our research program, a list of
our contributions to the 2003 Orthopaedic Research Society meeting in New
Orleans (February 2-5) is provided below - we hope to see you there.
