Laboratory Head/Co-ordinator and Research Engineer

The Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory (BBL) of the Department of
Orthopaedics, Lund University, Sweden, is seeking a Research Engineer and
Laboratory Head/Co-ordinator. The appointee will provide technical
expertise/leadership and scientific assistance in the management, design and
conduct of the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory’s research programme in
projects involving musculoskeletal disorders and their treatment. The
Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory is based in Lund University Hospital
and has extensive collaborations with Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry and
Polymer Technology in the Faculty of Technology (LTH) and with the Biomedical
Research Centre (BMC) of Lund University. It is part of the Centre for
Biomechanics at Lund University (CBML) and brings together all these expertises
to investigate musculoskeletal problems of clinical relevance. The appointee
will be responsible for initiating projects, providing engineering input into
clinical problems and the supervision of biomechanics project students from LTH
and the medical school, all in close collaboration with orthopaedic surgeons. In
the BBL there are mechanical testing facilities and materials production
equipment with FEA analysis facilities available. In immediate proximity to BBL
