Applications are invited a Post Doctoral Fellowship position in
Biomedical Engineering at the University of Calgary. The position is
available in the general area of spinal bioengineering research related
to low back pain and degenerative disc disease. Potential areas of
research include investigations of the mechano-biology of the
intervertebral disc with animal and cell/tissue culture models,
investigations of cellular and sub-cellular mechanics, cell-matrix
interactions and signaling, development of finite element and
micromechanical models of the intervertebral disc and cell environment.

The University of Calgary has extensive Biomedical Engineering resources
in the areas of biomechanics, cell and molecular biology and computer
analyses, as well as opportunities for collaboration within the Joint
Injuries and Arthritis Research Group at the McCaig Centre in the
Faculty of Medicine. The program in Biomedical Engineering was
established in part with a Whitaker Special Opportunities Award.

For consideration, please submit a full C.V. with the names and phone
