  • Orthopaedic Position

    Dear Biomch-L Colleagues,

    My department is currently looking for candidates who are qualified
    for the position of Assistant Professor in Orthopaedic Engineering
    (tenure track) and I am writing to solicit you help in our

    The candidate should have experience in Biomechanics or
    Biomaterials with a Ph.D. or anticipated doctoral degree in
    Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field. We anticipate
    that the successful candidate will develop an independently funded
    research program. The Orthopaedic Engineer's research will form
    the basis for interactions with clinical and research faculty and
    for teaching both in the Department of Orthopaedics and
    Rehabilitation and in other departments throughout the University.
    We would prefer to select a candidate who will be eligible for a
    joint appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
    Currently the department's research encompasses spinal cord injury,
    musculoskeletal function including gait analysis, bone induction in
    conjunction with prosthetic implants, and biochemical analysis of
    extracellular matrix.

    Excellent facilities are currently available for gait analysis and
    for research on cellular and molecular biology. The successful
    candidate will be given the opportunity to discuss how he or she
    would establish a very strong research program since the
    appropriate laboratory space and start-up funds for equipment will
    be made available.

    I would be very grateful if you could bring this opportunity to the
    attention of strong students or postdoctoral fellows who are
    qualified for the position. The job announcement follows:
