Anatomy Section, Bone and Joint Center, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, MI

The Bone and Joint Center Research laboratory is seeking a highly motivated,
skilled individual for the position of Senior Research Assistant in our
research programs on the biomechanics of the normal and diseased
musculoskeletal system.

Under minimal supervision, will conduct activities of the histology/anatomy
research section of the Bone and Joint Center:

1) Perform and evaluate histological sectioning and staining of skeletal
(soft and hard) tissues and prepare specimens for other microstructural study
(e.g., EM, microradiography, microcomputed tomography).
2) Work with experimental animals (various mammalian species).
3) Acquire tissues at necropsy (human and other animal).
4) Assist in preparing samples for, and conducting mechanical testing of,
biological tissues.
5) Assist in microscopic and mechanical data collection and statistical
analysis of data.
6) Maintain information base on existing and new technologies for
recommendation and potential application to the needs of the Bone and Joint
7) Develop and evaluate new methods of preparing musculoskeletal tissues
for microscopic and materials evaluation.
8) Perform general laboratory functions (prepare buffers, reagents,
maintenance and cleaning) and general lab management (maintenance of
histology/microscopy/anatomy facilities, including standard light and
fluorescence microscopes, microtomes, and image analysis facilities.
9) Supervise, assist, and teach residents, clinicians, and students in
histologic techniques and protocols.
10) Make written progress reports and summaries.

We seek an individual who is flexible and able to learn quickly, as research
requirements change according to the experiment, and new procedures and
protocols will constantly have to be developed, evaluated, and implemented.
Several members of our senior staff are also affiliated with the University of

through that institution.
