Research Engineering Internship Program

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
Baylor University Medical Center
Dallas, Texas

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Baylor University Medical
Center in Dallas, Texas is now accepting applications for an opening in
its Engineering Research Internship Program beginning May 1998.

The intern will be devoted to the Motion and Performance Laboratory and
work directly under the laboratory director. The Motion and Performance
Laboratory is responsible for clinical assessment of motion dysfunctions
and is an active research facility in orthopaedic and sports
biomechanics. The facility boasts a high-speed five camera Motion
Analysis System, one force platform, a 10 channel of EMG system,
treadmill, and O2 consumption equipment. The laboratory employs a full
time Ph.D. engineer, a research kinesiologist, and part-time graduate
and undergraduate students. The majority of the internĘs time will be
devoted to a project developing a dynamic six degree-of-freedom knee
measurement device. The ideal candidate must be knowledgeable in the
musculoskeletal system (specifically the knee joint), linear algebra,
basic electronics and a computer programming language (preferably C or
Visual Basic). In addition, the candidate must be a self starter,
motivated and be willing to participate in the testing of clinical and
research patients.

In order to qualify, a candidate must be currently enrolled in a
Biomechanics, Biomedical Engineering, or related graduate program. A
stipend of $1250 per month will be provided as well as some funds for
necessary supplies and equipment. The duration of the internship
program will be 12 months and the candidate will be expected to work
approximately 30 hrs/week.
