The Mayo Clinic is pleased to announce a fellowship in Division of
Orthopedic Research. This fellowship, a collaborative effort of the
Orthopedic Molecular Biology Laboratory and the Orthopedic Biomechanics
Laboratory, provides an opportunity for full-time research over two
or three years. The fellowship is supported by a five-year grant from
the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin
Diseases (NIAMS) of the National Institute of Health (NIH).


PhDs or equivalent training in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology,
cell biology or biomechanical engineering.

Physicians with training in Orthopedics.

Research Areas:

(1) Develop cross-disciplined research skills in the environment of
established, well-recognized biomechanics and molecular biology laboratories,
and (2) use these skills to develop independent research with a mentor.
The research begins with a current project of studying micro-level
biomechanics of extracellular matrix.

This program is designed to train physicians and non-physicians interested
in musculoskeletal diseases. Potential candidates should be interested in
a career in academic medicine or basic science research in a field related
to musculoskeletal diseases.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of interest, and
three referee names by April 1, 1997. Applications and inquiries should
