View Full Version : Job Posting: Post Doc in Skeletal Mechanobiology

01-03-2008, 08:09 AM
The Biomechanical Engineering Lab in the Department of Orthopaedic
Surgery, Washington University in Saint Louis has an immediate opening
for a post-doctoral research associate in the field of skeletal
mechanobiology. A motivated individual is needed to work on an
NIH-funded study utilizing in vivo models aimed at determining how the
skeleton responds to mechanical vibration. You will become an integral
member of a multidisciplinary orthopaedic research laboratory at a major
medical center (Washington University ranks 4th in NIH funding). You
will benefit from the strong collaborations that exist between our group
and researchers working in bone biology, developmental biology,
genetics, mechanical engineering and biomedical engineering.

Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in biomedical or mechanical engineering,
cell or molecular biology, or a closely related field. Preference will
be given to applicants who have a proven record in musculoskeletal
research. This is an excellent opportunity for an individual with a
strong background in biomechanics to learn skeletal biology, or
vice-versa. The fellowship is for a period of at least two years.

Applicants should apply by sending a cover letter, resume, and the names
of three references via email or post to:

Matthew Silva, Ph.D.
