    Research Engineer/Biomechanist Position Open, Houston, Texas

    The Institute of Orthopedic Research and Education in Houston, Texas has
    an immediate opening for an engineer interested in orthopedic
    biomechanics research. The laboratory is dedicated to the design and
    evaluation of total hip replacement (THR) systems.

    Areas of focus include simulation of prosthetic function during
    functional activities in a cadaveric model, fixation of designed
    components into their host bones and quantitative analysis of surgical
    procedures. Experimental studies are conducted in conjunction with
    dynamic computer simulation, finite element analysis and visualization
    of joint motion before and after THR.

    The successful applicant will report to Philip C. Noble, PhD, Director
    of Research. Duties include:

    1. Perform experimental and theoretical research studies in
    biomechanics and/or biomaterials.

    2. Analyze experimental data.

    3. Develop computer visualization and simulation software

    4. Develop and construct experimental testing devices, both
    hardware and software.

    5. Collaborate with engineers, staff, residents, fellows and
    faculty in performing research studies.

    Suitable applicants should have a degree in mechanical or biomedical
    engineering with knowledge and experience in research design and
    analysis and an interest in orthopedic biomechanics. Matlab, C/C++ and
    CAD experience required. Knowledge and experience with mechanical
    equipment and electronics is highly advantageous. A competitive salary
    and benefit package is offered commensurate with the applicant's
    qualifications and experience.
