POST-DOCTORAL FELLOW
CARTILAGE TISSUE ENGINEERING
An immediate opportunity exists for a post-doctoral fellow to study the
biomechanical properties of cartilage.
This position is sponsored jointly by the Orthopaedic Research
Laboratories, Department of Orthopaedic
Surgery, Washington University and Isto Technologies, Inc., both of St.
Louis, MO. The fellow will direct
the biomechanics component of applied research aimed at characterizing the
properties of an engineered
cartilage replacement tissue. This research will complement ongoing animal
studies, biochemical analysis
and the development of bioprocessing procedures. In addition, the fellow
will have opportunities to
collaborate and interact with basic scientists and clinicians in the
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery,
on projects related to molecular signal transduction in skeletal tissue
development, post-traumatic arthritis,
and the response of bone to in vivo mechanical loading. The appointment
will be in the Department of
Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, for a period
of 1-2 years. Candidates
for this position must possess a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering,
biomedical engineering or a related
discipline and have expertise and hands-on experience in testing and
analysis of the mechanical behavior
of cartilage. Experience with cartilage cell and tissue culture is
preferred. Applicants may apply by sending
a cover letter, resume and the names of three references to: Matthew Silva,
Ph.D., Dept. of Orthopaedic
Surgery, Washington University, 1 Barnes-Jewish Plaza, Suite 11300, St.
Louis, MO 63110. Applications
should be received by February 1, 1999. Inquiries may be made by email to:
