POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE IN EXPERIMENTAL JOINT TISSUE BIOMECHANICS


Research theme: Cartilage-bone changes
in the pre-osteoarthritic joint

A one-year postdoctoral position is available in the area of
experimental cartilage-bone biomechanics and osteoarthritis research.
The research is aimed at investigating microstructural and
ultrastructural changes associated with early degeneration of the joint
tissues and understanding how these changes influence their mechanical
vulnerability.

The project is experimentally based and the successful appointee will be
required to carry out detailed microstructural analysis and conduct
micromechanical manipulations. Applicants should possess a high level
of interpretive ability in the structural/micromechanical area.

The research will be conducted in the Biomaterials Research Laboratory
which is part of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering,
University of Auckland, under the direction of Professor Neil Broom and
Dr Ashvin Thambyah.

Salary: L1 on the lecturer scale(NZ$67,315 p.a.)

There is a need to fill this position as quickly as possible. Suitable
applicants should email their CV (including contact details of potential
referees) promptly to:-
