The Position
Post-doctoral research fellow in soft tissue biomechanics and
neurophysiology

Qualifications
Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, or
neurophysiology

Job Description
The Post-Doctoral Fellow will be a key investigator in a Whitaker
Foundation funded project to examine the neural population response of
cutaneous nociceptors to controlled mechanical stretch and compression.
Project involves
developing a new apparatus for mechanical testing of an in-vitro
skin-nerve
preparation, modeling continuum stress-strain state in soft tissue, and
neurophysiological recording from isolated peripheral neurons. A
neurophysiological background, while not essential, will be helpful, as
will previous programming experience in C or LabView. Experience in
small animal surgery is a plus. This exciting and challenging position
will be for 2 - 3 years, starting immediately, and the salary is
negotiable.

Application:
Submit CV, relevant publications, and names & addresses of 3
references by November 1, 1997.
