Qualified candidates are being sought to fill pre and post-doctoral
fellowship positions on an NIH-funded Training Grant at Case Western
Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Positions are based in the
Department of Orthopaedics (Victor M. Goldberg, M.D., Chair) and
opportunities are available for study of a wide variety of topics in the
biological and systems aspects of skeletal science through strong clinical
and technical interactions with the Departments of Biomedical and Aerospace
Engineering at CWRU, and University Hospitals, MetroHealth Medical Center
and the Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Participating faculty include: R. Tracy Ballock, MD: Regulation of growth
plate chondrocyte differentiation, chondrodysplasia; Dwight T. Davy, PhD:
Mechanics of hard tissues, mechanics of fracture healing and bone grafts,
mechanics of natural and artificial joints; Edward M. Greenfield, PhD:
Cell-cell interactions that regulate bone turnover in response to
parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, and orthopaedic wear debris; Thomas M.
Hering, PhD: Molecular biology of extracellular matrix in articular
cartilage; Brian Johnstone, PhD: Biochemistry and cell and molecular
biology work on the fundamental processes of chondrogenesis, genetic
manipulation of cells for use in clinically relevant animal models of
degenerative joint disease and spinal fusion; Joseph M. Mansour, PhD:
Mechanical behavior of cartilage including effects of disease and repair;
P. Hunter Peckham, PhD: Functional electrical stimulation for restoration
of function in spinal cord injury patients; Clare M. Rimnac, PhD: Implant
materials performance, wear and degradation of UHMW polyethylene; Ronald
Triolo, PhD: Rehabilitation, FNS, human movement analysis, orthotics and
prosthetics; Clayton Van Doren, PhD: Kinesthetic and tactile function,
sensory feedback for prostheses; Jean Welter, MD, PhD: Molecular and
cellular biology of skeletal cells, mechanical and environmental effects on
gene expression.
