POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN BONE MECHANICS

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Division of Bone and Mineral
Diseases at Washington University in St. Louis invite applications for a
post-doctoral fellowship in the general area of bone mechanics. Research
opportunities include the characterization of the mechanical and morphological
properties of bone from animals with altered bone metabolism, finite element
analysis of whole bones for failure load prediction, and development of in vivo
and in vitro models for investigating the response of bone to mechanical
stimuli. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. and have expertise in either
biomechanics or bone biology. This is a good opportunity for an individual with
a strong background in one of these areas to develop expertise in the other.
This fellowship is offered as part of an NIH training grant and is for a
minimum of one year with a possibility of a one year extension. Starting date
will be approximately August 1, 1997. Applicants should send a cover letter,
resume, and the names of three references to:
Matthew J. Silva, Ph.D.
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Washington University School of Medicine
One Barnes Hospital Plaza
St. Louis, MO 63110
