    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
