The Müller Institute for Biomechanics of the University of Bern, Switzerland,
seeks a qualified individual to apply for two positions available in the
basic and clinical biomechanics group:

Experimental Biomechanical Engineer:

The successful candidate should have a background in mechanical engineering,
with either a bachelor’s, Dipl. Ing. HTL or ETH, or equivalent degree. The
position requires working closely with the group head in designing and
performing biomechanical experiments in the field of orthopaedic
biomechanics (total joint replacements, trauma, and spine). The successful
candidate will manage the material testing laboratory and also teach new
students and co-workers how to use the equipment and software associated
with testing. Experience with Instron or MTS material testing machines,
LABView, PCs, and standard software is a plus.

Start date: November 1

Clinical Support Researcher:

The successful candidate should have a medical degree with one-to-two years
clinical experience in orthopedics. The job entails assisting in the design
and performance of biomechanical studies on total joint replacement, trauma
devices and spine instrumentation. He will help teach basic anatomy,
prepare specimens for testing, diagnose x-rays and other duties which takes
advantage of the medical background. This is a one-year fellowship which
allows the prospective orthopedic surgeon to obtain hands on experience in
biomechanical testing, such as strain gage application, materials testing,
and computer aided-surgery.

Start Date: December 1

Good communication skills in English and the ability to work independently
are required for either position.

Interested candidates are invited to send a resume and names of three
references to:
