Post-doctoral Fellowship in Foot and Ankle Biomechanics at the Cleveland

The Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery
(http://cms.clevelandclinic.org/ortho/) and Biomedical Engineering
(http://www.lerner.ccf.org/bme/) at the Cleveland Clinic have an
exciting post-doctoral fellowship opportunity to support biomechanics
research in the foot and ankle. The fellow is expected to bridge current
clinical practice and state-of-the-art basic science research in the
discipline. He/she will work closely with foot and ankle practitioners
in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Orthopaedic Research Center
(http://www.lerner.ccf.org/orc/) and with the biomechanics researchers
in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The responsibilities will
include implementing research protocols (that may involve cadaver
experimentation, human subjects testing and computational modeling) to
answer clinically-originated research problems. Growth possibilities
exist to establish an independent research program in foot and ankle

The fellow will be mentored by Brian Donley, MD, Department of
Orthopaedic Surgery (clinical mentor) and Peter Cavanagh, PhD, DSc
(scientific mentor). He/she will have the opportunity to participate in
robotic testing activities for lifelike simulations of foot movements
and will also have access to a broad array of biomechanical testing and
medical imaging facilities. Collaborative possibilities also exist with
the Diabetic Foot Clinic and Computational Biomodeling Core of the
Cleveland Clinic.

Funding is available for one year with the possibility of extension. For
benefits, please consult to

please send CV, statement of research interests, sample publications and
contact information for at least three references, to Carolyn Jirousek
at jirousc@ccf.org
