ANNOUNCEMENT: POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN BIOMECHANICS

Two positions are now available at Henry Ford Hospital for individuals
who have recently completed (or are about to complete) a Ph.D. degree
in Biomechanics or a related field. These positions are with the Bone
and Joint Center Laboratories, which are staffed by a
multi-disciplinary team of 7 Ph.D. faculty, one postdoctoral fellow
and 15 technicians. Laboratory capabilities include motion analysis,
mechanical testing, numerical computing (including finite element
analysis), biochemistry, histomorphometry, anatomy and cellular
biology, as well as machine and electronics shops. The laboratories
are also associated with a large, research-oriented clinical
orthopedics department and the Henry Ford Hospital Center for Athletic
Medicine. These positions offer excellent opportunities for
individuals with suitable backgrounds and interests to gain experience
in a diverse research environment.

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOMECHANICS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT. Experience
in computer modeling and simulation of musculoskeletal dynamics
required. Experience in human movement analysis, image processing,
sports biomechanics and/or motor control desirable, but not required.
Motion analysis laboratory includes a biplanar X-ray digital imaging
system for high-speed analysis of joint function, a 5-camera 250fps 3D
video-motion analysis system, force platforms, EMG, and extensive
computer hardware/software for data collection and visualization as
well as for the development and analysis of musculoskeletal models.
Primary research interests are in orthopedic/sports biomechanics as
related to joint function, disease, injury and repair.

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN BIOMECHANICS OF HARD TISSUE. Finite element
analysis programming experience necessary. An excellent opportunity
for learning all aspects of collaborative research in biomechanics.

If you are interested in one of these positions, please contact the
appropriate individual below (Dr. Tashman for the Human Movement
Biomechanics position or Dr. Fyhrie for the Hard Tissue Biomechanics
position), preferably by E-mail. We would like to interview qualified
candidates at the Orthopaedic Research Society meeting in New Orleans
February 21-24, so if you are planning on attending please contact us
as soon as possible. If you are unable to attend the ORS, we can make
other arrangements.
