Applications are invited for upto three available graduate student
positions at the M.Sc. or Ph.D. level in Biomedical Engineering at the
University of Calgary. These positions are 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. Students may register in engineering or medical
sciences as part of the graduate program in Biomedical Engineering
established in part with a Whitaker Special Opportunities Award.

For consideration, please submit a full C.V. with the names and phone
numbers of at least two references, as well as a one-page statement of
research interests and career goals.
