Dear All:

I am currently seeking a graduate student interested in pursuing a PhD
in Biomedical Engineering and a dissertation project in finite element
modeling of the pelvis. We are beginning a new project with the Global
Human Body Modeling Consortium, whose aim is to develop FE models of 5th
and 50th percentile females, 50th and 95th percentile males, for use in
crash simulations and injury biomechanics analyses. Our focus is on the
pelvis and we are working collaboratively with researchers from Univ. of
Virginia to develop pelvis and lower extremity models.

Ideally the candidate would have MS level experience with meshing
(TrueGrid, Hypermesh) and dynamic FE modeling (explicit codes such as
LS-DYNA). Applicants should respond directly to me for initial
screening.

Thank you.
