PhD assistantships are available in the Injury and Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University for summer/fall of 2009. The goals of the Injury and Orthopaedic Biomechanics group are to investigate clinically relevant biomechanical research problems using the principles of engineering mechanics. Research is generally multidisciplinary with close relationships between engineering and Duke Medical Center clinical faculty. The activities of the group include both experimental and computational biomechanics research to develop, and validate models of soft and hard tissue behavior. Research of the group focuses on injury risk from microscale to macroscale for the head/brain, neck, thorax and extremities. Potential research topics include injury biomechanics of pediatric trauma and biomechanics of blast, blunt and ballistic trauma.

Interested students with strong academic backgrounds and a minimum GPA of 3.5 should send CV's and GRE scores to:
