Postdoctoral Position in the field of Implant-Osseointegration

The Laboratory of Biomechanics and Biomaterials of the Orthopaedic
Department of the Hannover Medical School (LBB, www.lbb-mhh.de.vu) is
offering a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the field of Implant-Osseointegration
for two years with the option for a further two years of funding.
Applicants are expected to have an advanced degree (Dr.-Ing., Dr. rer. nat.,
PhD. or equivalent) in Veterinary, Biomedical Engineering, Molecular
Biology, Cell Biology or an associated field. We are looking for a highly
qualified, motivated and creative individual who is willing to work in a
multidisciplinary scientific research environment and who can document their
ability to work independently.
The research areas for this position will be in the development of new
techniques for the analysis of osseointegration in the field of bioactive
coatings for total-joint arthroplasty and fracture fixation. The individual
will be responsible for the planning, implementation and supervision of
several research projects, and is expected to work and publish at the
international level. Research experience in bone biology, as well as a
familiarity with associated analytical techniques such as histomorphology,
CT, electron microscopy as well as experience with animal models are
expected. Expertise in one of the following fields should be documented:
growth factors such as BMP, bone mechanobiology, or bone cell biology.
Fluency in spoken and written English is required, the applicant should be
willing to attain some level of German fluency.
The position will offer the candidate the opportunity to work in a
multidisciplinary environment with direct daily contact and interaction with
the clinicians of the Orthopaedic Department of the Hannover Medical School.

the German Research Foundation (SFB 599: Biomedical Technology,
www.mhh-hno.de/sfb599). The SFB 599 is a cooperation between the Medical
School, the Leibnitz University and the Veterinary Schools of Hannover, as
well as the Technical University of Braunschweig and the Helmholtz Center
for Infection Research. The Biomaterials Section of the LBB is well
equipped with equipment for performing polymer resin histology as well as
technical support staff.
