The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Division of Bone and Mineral
Diseases of Washington University have an immediate opening for a
post-doctoral fellow in the area of bone mechanics and adaptation. Research
opportunities include the characterization of the mechanical and
morphological properties of bone from animals with altered bone metabolism
and the application of in vivo models for investigating the response of
bone to mechanical stimuli. Applicants must possess a Ph.D. and have
expertise in either biomechanics or bone biology. This is a good
opportunity for an individual with a strong background in one of these
areas to develop expertise in the other, and to become an integral member
of a biomechanics laboratory at a major medical center. The fellowship is
for a period of 1 year with a possibility for 1 year renewal. Because of
NIH training grant restrictions, only citizens or noncitizen nationals or
permanent residents of the United States will be considered. Applicants
should apply by sending a cover letter, resume, and the names of three
references to:
