biomaterials engineer with a strong background in metallurgy/metallography,
polymer characterization, and scanning electron microscopy to support a
growing litigation practice in the analysis and prevention of orthopedic

performance of orthopedic implants. Successful candidates will also have

literature in the formulation of conclusions. Recent Ph.D. graduates and
P.E.'s will also be considered. Starting Salary is commensurate with
