Hello Everyone,

I am new to the biomchlist network and I hope that my message
does not break any rules about gaining information about jobs available.

My name is Mary Hannan and I am studying for an MSc degree
in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Surrey in Guildford,
England. I will be finished with my one year program (6 months taught
courses and British National exams with 6 months of independent research
project) here in Oct of this year. Then I will be heading back to
Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up.

I was wondering if anybody could give me information on the
current job market situation in and around the Greater Boston area.
Since my undergraduate degree was in aerospace engineering and I
worked in Washington DC for 4 years, I am not familiar with the
biomedical field in Boston.

I would just like to know if anybody has advice or opinions
about places to start looking for jobs. Particularly, I'd like to
know if there are opportunities in the many teaching hospitals in
Boston, however, I would be interested in any information that
people could give me. I am leaning towards working in ORTHOPAEDICS
or BIOCOMPATIBILITY OF MATERIALS, however, I would like to hear about
opportunities in ANY AREA of biomechanical engineering.

I appreciate any responses and thank you in advance.
