-- Research Scientist Position in Bio-mechanical Testing --

Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery,
Charité - University Medicine,

The Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery is searching for a highly
motivated, ambitious engineer to run the bio-mechanical testing division
of our research laboratories. The position would entail not only the
development and evaluation of diverse implants for orthopaedic and trauma
surgery, but also the leading and supervision of student and post-grad
projects. The successful candidate should exhibit strong leadership
capabilities and extensive experience in project management.

Improved knowledge of the loading and kinematics of both the bone and soft
tissue structures in human joints can lead to improved clinical outcome.
With our close collaboration to the orthopaedic and trauma clinic of the
Charité, we aim to complete a number of projects based on clinically
relevant aspects of the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Through
increased knowledge of joint and implant loading by mechanical testing,
together with defined surgical and rehabilitation strategies, it is
intended to provide extensive knowledge that may help both routine and
borderline clinical cases to be optimally planned and reliably

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