Research Assistant - Biomechanics

A graduate student in biomechanics, engineering, computer science
or related science, is needed for a 1/2 time position to assist in
biomedical research that aims to define the effect of anthropometric
parameters, age race and sex in the size and density of bones of children.


This study is done at the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and
University of Southern California, and uses sophisticated radiographic
techniques to in vivo calculate the volume and structural and biological
quality of the bones in the appendicular and axial skeleton.

Knowledge of FEA techniques, OS/2 or Windows "C" or "C++" object
oriented programming, image processing, statistical techniques, and
research protocol a must. Knowledge of musculo-skeletal anatomy and
physiology preferred.

Interested candidates should contact Dr. Vicente Gilsanz,
Department of Radiology, Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. (213) 669-4592 or
