Post Doctoral Research Fellow - Finite Element Analysis
Biomechanics Laboratory, Department of Orthopaedics
University of Lund, Sweden

N.B. Please reply to Leif.Ryd@ort.lu.se

A Research Fellow is required for a one year post to perform finite element
analysis of a novel design of tibial component for total knee replacements.
The Research Fellow will be required to set up a finite element model of
the proximal tibia from CT scans of patients. The model will then be
implanted with both the novel and conventional designs of tibial prostheses
and appropriate load regimes and interface conditions will be applied. The
stresses and interfacial motions generated will be examined and used to
optimise the novel design and methods of fixation. The Biomechanics
Laboratory runs MARC finite element software, has a biaxial mechanical
testing machine and has access to Röntgen Stereophotogrammetric Analysis
(RSA); current research projects within the laboratory cover both
biomechanics and biomaterials of joint replacement. The person appointed
would be expected to have substantial knowledge of finite element analysis
with some knowledge of biomechanics of joint replacement being advantageous.

Lund is a pleasant university town in southern Sweden with easy connections
via Copenhagen to the rest of the world. The working language in the
Biomechanics Laboratory is English.

Further information on research in the Department of Orthopaedics can be
found on http://www.ort.lu.se/ and informal enquires can be made to
Professor Leif Ryd (Leif.Ryd@ort.lu.se). Applications should be in the form
of a CV containing a statement of research interests and the names of three
referees to Professor Leif Ryd, Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University
Hospital, S-22185 Lund, Sweden.
