Post-Doctoral Fellow / Research Faculty Position, Computational Biomechanics
Lab, University of Denver

An opening is available for a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of
Denver in the area of computational biomechanics. Current research
interests include probabilistic, forward-dynamic finite element modeling of
natural and implanted knees. Qualified candidates may also be considered
for Research Faculty appointment within the Department of Mechanical and
Materials Engineering. The successful candidate will be expected to lead
and conduct advanced research projects, and interface on these projects with
industry, graduate students, and other faculty. Excellent post-doctoral
salary available, including benefits. Starting date negotiable.
