FALL 2010 GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP
UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER

We are currently accepting applications for graduate research assistantships starting in the Fall of 2010 in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging. These research assistantships are supported by internal funds and include a stipend and tuition reimbursement. All applications must be received by the College of Graduate Health Sciences in full as soon as possible. Information on the Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering can be found at http://www.utmem.edu/grad/PROGRAMS/Biomed_Eng_Program.htm

DEGREES OFFERED: There is currently one opening at the MS level in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN. The research assistantship will be in the Robotics and Biomechanics Laboratory (RBL) where the primary focus of research is in spine and orthopedic biomechanics. Most recently we have evaluated several implantable intervertebral disc replacement and nucleus arthroplasty devices, and have constructed a multi-axis robotic based programmable testing system which is continually being developed and applied towards novel in-vitro testing protocols.

RESPONSIBILITIES: Duties will include preparation of human cadaveric tissue, set up and execution of existing and new laboratory testing protocols, data collection and statistical analyses, project coordination between industrial and surgical collaborators, as well as report and manuscript preparation. For the current opening an individual is preferred who has interest or experience in robotics/controls, computer programming, and the design and development of novel multi-axis robotic based testing systems

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: BS in Mechanical or Biomedical Engineering. Good mechanical aptitude, robotic and/or design experience as well as computer programming experience (any of Visual Basic, C, or C Sharp would be ideal).

APPLICATIONS: Interested applicants are encouraged to apply electronically through our departmental website at http://www.utmem.edu/grad/PROGRAMS/Biomed_Eng_Program.htm. The application package includes an electronic letter of interest, academic transcripts, GRE scores, and three letters of recommendation.
