Post-doctoral position funded for three years in bone biomechanics.
Responsibilities include: creating and running finite element models,
assisting with mechanical testing laboratory and developing your own
research interests. A degree in mechanical engineering or
bioengineering is preferred.

The position is in the Biomechanics Section of the Breech Research
Laboratory. The laboratory has six PhD investigators and (currently)
three post-doctoral fellows. The faculty include a biochemist, cell
biologist, anatomist, exercise physiologist and two mechanical
engineers. Facilities include: mechanical testing facility (2 Instron
machines), electronics and machine shop (full time technical help for
