Post-Doctoral Fellowship

A post-doctoral fellowship is available within the Johns Hopkins Orthopaedic
Biomechanics Laboratory. The fellow will assist current members of the
laboratory in developing graphical biomechanical models of the musculoskeletal
system. These models are used for studies related to characterization of
normal and abnormal joint kinematics and kinetics, pre-operative planning, and
quantitative evaluation of total joint arthroplasty. More information on the
ongoing projects within the laboratory can be obtained through the laboratory
web site at www.biomech.jhu.edu.

Candidates with a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering,
computer science with a concentration in mechanics, or a related field will be
considered for the position. Candidates with previous experience in kinematic
analysis of the musculoskeletal system will be given the highest consideration.
In addition, a candidate with experience programming in C/ C++ and OpenGL is
strongly desired.

The Johns Hopkins Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory is a Division of the
Department of Orthopaedic Surgery of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The
laboratory director is Dr. Edmund Y. Chao. Members of the laboratory include
full time faculty, post-doctoral fellows, staff members, and students from the
United States and several other countries. Members of the laboratory
collaborate with clinical faculty of the Johns Hopkins University and other
institutions as well as members of industry on a variety of projects.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and a list of three references to
John J. Elias, Ph.D., at the address below.
