Graduate Research Assistantships in Biomechanics
The University of Missouri - Kansas City

The Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory and the
Computational Mechanics Laboratory at the University of Missouri -
Kansas City (UMKC) are seeking applications for two National Science
Foundation (NSF) funded Ph.D. graduate research assistants in the areas
of knee biomechanics and multi-scale tissue modeling. The appointments
will begin in January of 2006 and will include year-round monthly
stipends plus tuition support for a three year period.

Applicants are expected to have obtained a MS degree in Mechanical
Engineering, Civil Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or a related
field. Experience in biomechanics, rigid body or finite element
modeling, and artificial neural networks are desired.

Graduate assistants will participate in UMKC's interdisciplinary
research program (http://www.umkc.edu/iphd/iphdn.html) with
co-disciplinary opportunities in Oral Biology, Computer Science,
Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Biophysics,
Physics, and Mathematics. The School of Computing and Engineering (SCE)
serves over 1100 students and is one of the largest schools at UMKC.
Faculty, staff, classrooms, and laboratories are housed in the recently
constructed Robert H. Flarsheim Hall located on the main UMKC campus
adjacent to Kansas City's world renowned Plaza area.
