PhD position in computational biomechanics – modeling of physiological
processes in bone fracture healing and tissue engineering

Location: Biomedical Engineering Research Unit, Faculty of Mechanical
Engineering, University of Liège, Belgium.

Description: A new biomedical engineering research unit was recently
established within the mechanical engineering department of ULg to support
the running master program of biomedical engineering. A graduate
assistantship is available for 2 years (twice renewable). Research will be
carried out in the area of computational modeling of tissue engineering and
bone fracture healing. The ideal candidate has a strong interest in
biomedical problems and an affinity for computer modeling. The candidate
should be an eager self-starter who is able to work with, and be part of, a
multidisciplinary (biomechanics and systems biology) research team. The
candidate is expected to collaborate in the organization of the courses and
practica according to her/his skills and the need of the department (about
120 h/year).

Requirements: The candidate should have a master’s degree in biomedical
engineering, mechanical engineering or equivalent and has distinguished
her/himself during or after these studies. The candidate should also be
proficient in written and spoken English. Knowledge of French is not
required, although foreign PhD students are strongly encouraged to learn
French.

Salary: 1800 euro/month with tax exemption.

Start date: October 1st 2009.

Please send a summary of research interests, CV and contact information from
three references to Dr. Liesbet Geris (Liesbet.geris@mech.kuleuven.be).
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
