IMMEDIATE OPENING for Biomechanics/Biomedical Engineer (Research Associate

The Bioengineering Laboratory at the Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA)
has an immediate opening for a biomechanics/biomedical engineer (research
associate position).

- Master's degree in Biomedical, Biomechanics or Mechanical Engineering
- Excellent knowledge of human joint biomechanics
- Good working knowledge of MATLAB and general FEA/Simulation software/s
- Experience with in vitro testing of human joints
- Knowledge of CAD programs such as Solidworks/PRO-Engineer/Rhinoceros is a plus

The successful candidate will work under the guidance of Dr. Kartik Varadarajan
(Research Scientist) and Dr. Guoan Li (Director).
The research associate's responsibilities will include
(1) Conducting in-vitro testing on cadaveric human knee specimens, using the
Bioengineering Lab's six-degree-of-freedom robotic testing system
(2) Conducting in-vivo imaging studies on living subjects to study the
biomechanics of knees following joint replacement surgery
(3) Running computer simulations of human knee biomechanics using software such
as KneeSim/Abaqus

Interested applicants should email CV/Resume along with contact information of 3
references to Dr. Varadarajan

The Orthopaedic Bioengineering Laboratory was established in 1998 by Dr. Guoan
Li. Upon establishing the laboratory at MGH, Dr. Li's focus was on the novel
application of robotic technology to the in-vitro motion simulation of the human
upper and lower extremity. Using this robotic technology, the laboratory
pioneered the investigation of human knee function in high flexion angles and
revealed many factors that hinder deep flexion after total knee arthroplasty. In
2003, the laboratory established a dual plane fluoroscopy based imaging system
that could accurately determine in-vivo 6DOF musculoskeletal joint kinematics.
This technique has since contributed to a series of papers reporting the in-vivo
function of the human ankle, knee, elbow, shoulder and spine. In the recent
years, the laboratory has been involved in orthopaedic translational research,
such as developing the next generation of total knee arthroplasty and new ACL
reconstruction techniques.
