laboratory at a major medical center.

Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in either mechanical engineering,
biomedical engineering, bone biology or related discipline. Preference
will be given to applicants with a proven record in musculoskeletal
research. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual with a
strong background in bone mechanics to develop expertise in bone
biology, or vice-versa. The fellowship is for a period of two years.
