examines the outcomes post lower extremity arthroplasty. Laboratory
experiments on cadaver models, operating room data collection, and imaging
processing will be integrated parts of this research.

Opportunities exist to interact in collaborative research with engineering
and clinical faculty who specialize in orthopaedics, physical therapy,
rehabilitation, and biomechanical engineering.

Applicants should have a recent PhD degree (or equivalent) in biomedical
engineering and biomechanics or a related discipline. A record of research
in biomechanics, musculoskeletal modeling, and/or finite element modeling is
highly desired. Knowledge/experience on biological materials, soft-tissue
biomechanics, cadaver experiments is a plus.

Salary is commensurate with education and experience.

Interested candidates should submit via e-mail, mail, or fax (e-mail is
