12-20-2007, 04:54 AM
The Tissue Mechanics Lab in the Biomedical Engineering program,
University of Connecticut, has an immediate opening for one Ph.D.-level
graduate research assistant in the area of heart valve structural and
biomechanical analyses. The project includes:
1 - Microstructural and mechanical analyses of heart valve tissues.
2 - 3D reconstruction of heart valve geometries and computational
modeling of heart valve function.

A strong interest in tissue mechanics (nonlinear solid mechanics) and
computational mechanics (FEA) is required. Good experimental skills,
ability to design and fabricate testing devices are also a plus.
Monthly stipend with full tuition waiver is included. Students with a
Master's degree and/or relevant work experience are preferred.
