-- Post-doc Position in Mechanical Testing, Joint Loading and Kinematics --

Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery, Charité - University Medicine, Berlin

The Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery is searching for a highly motivated,
ambitious engineer with strong leadership abilities to run the mechanical
testing division of our research laboratories. The position would entail not
only the directing of joint replacement implant testing, but also the
leading and supervision of student and post-grad projects.

Improved knowledge of the loading and kinematics of both the bone and soft
tissue structures in human joints under a variety of conditions can lead to
improved healing. With our close collaboration to the orthopaedic and trauma
clinic of the Charité, we aim to complete a number of projects based on real
clinical fractures, ligament rupture and osteotomy situations of the human
lower limb. Through increased knowledge of joint and implant loading by
mechanical testing, it is intended to develop our models such that these
clinical cases may be reliably reconstructed for optimal planning of
surgical and rehabilitation strategies.

Since their conception some six years ago, the research laboratories of the
Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery have grown into a group of over 30
personel under the guidance of Professor Georg Duda. The successful
applicant will therefore become part of a highly motivated interdisciplinary
team in an extreemly sucessful scientific working environment.

The working languages are both English and German.

Interested candidates should send a CV, including recent publications, with
cover letter to:

Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Georg N. Duda
