Postdoctoral Position
Department of Biomedical Engineering
Tulane University
New Orleans, Louisiana

A new postdoctoral position is now available to be filled by
January 1, 1995. Funding for the position comes from an ONR grant
in conjunction with the Naval Biodynamics Laboratory in New
Orleans to perform a computational study of the head-neck due to
impact accelerations, such as experienced by pilots during an
ejection from moving aircraft. An earned and completed Ph.D.
degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or
Biomedical Engineering with demonstrated expertise in
musculoskeletal biomechanics is required. The ideal candidate
will be one with expertise doing large deformation dynamic finite
element modeling using ABAQUS. Prior use of CRAY Supercomputers
is a plus. The project is funded for three years with support for
2 faculty PI's (R.C. Anderson and R.T. Hart) and provides funding
for one postdoctoral position and support of a graduate student
(who has already been selected). Salary is $35,000 annually.

Computations will be performed using the Department's CRAY Y-
MP/EL-94 computer system, a dedicated DEC Alpha processor and
PowerMacintosh workstations running X-windows.
Send CV and names of three references not later than October 31,
1994 in order to receive full consideration. The position will be
filled by January 1, 1995.
