The Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute (AORI) is seeking an individual
to assist with all phases of its on-going research related to hip and knee
joint replacements. The successful candidate will work closely with
experienced orthopaedic surgeons to design and implement research studies.
Job responsibilities will include developing research protocols, obtaining
Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval, collecting data, performing
statistical analyses and writing manuscripts. Candidates must have a
bachelor's or graduate degree in engineering or a science-related field.
Computer proficiency is essential. This position is full-time with
benefits. Salary will be based on qualifications and experience. While
relevant experience is desirable, AORI regards itself as a training
institute and can provide on-the-job training for capable individuals who
are ambitious and self-motivated. This position may be ideal for someone
who is seeking clinical experience or considering a career related to
orthopaedics. Interested candidates should e-mail their CV and a cover
letter to research@aori.org.

Established in 1972, AORI (www.aori.org) is a non-profit research foundation
renown for its clinically-oriented research related to hip and knee
replacements. AORI conducts both prospective and retrospective studies to
better understand the factors that influence outcome after joint
replacement. The Institute maintains a clinical database of over 14,000
joint replacement procedures. Current research topics include
three-dimensional imaging of joint replacement patients using computed
tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging; understanding the
factors associated with bone resorption (osteolysis) around artificial
implants; and evaluating bone graft substitutes for the treatment of
osteolysis. AORI's facilities are located 10 miles outside Washington, DC,
in Alexandria, VA. We seek to share our research findings with the medical
community through peer-reviewed publications and scientific meetings.
Opportunities for co-authorship are available to AORI staff members for work
stemming from their research.
