  • Job Listing -Post-Doc in Bone Mechanics/Adaptation

    Job Description:
    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, morphological
    and chemical 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 background in one of these areas to
    develop expertise in the other, and to become an integral member of a
    musculoskeletal biomechanics laboratory. Numerous opportunities exist for
    collaborations with clinicians and biomedical scientists at the medical
    school and with bioengineers and physical scientists on the main campus.
    The fellowship is for a period of 1 year with a possibility for 1 year

    Ph.D. in engineering or biomedical sciences or related discipline. Because
    of NIH training grant restrictions, only citizens or noncitizen nationals
    or permanent residents of the United States will be considered.

    How to Apply:
    Applicants should apply by sending a cover letter, resume, and the names of
    three references to:
    Matthew Silva, Ph.D.
