    Engineered Tissue Mechanics Laboratory
    McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine
    University of Pittsburgh

    The Engineered Tissue Mechanics Laboratory (ETML), headed by Dr. Michael
    Sacks, has immediate openings for the following positions:

    1) Post-doctoral position in Numerical Simulation of the Mechanics of Native
    and Engineered Soft Tissues. This is a two-year Post-Doctoral research
    position funding by an NIH training grant. The focus of this positions the
    development and implementation of computational models of native and
    engineered soft tissues, based on structural constitutive models.
    Applications include the urinary bladder, stem-cell seeded scaffolds for
    urological repair, engineered tissue design, and cell/tissue mechanical
    interactions. Candidates with doctoral degrees in Biomechanics, Mechanical
    Engineering/Applied Mechanics, and related engineering disciplines with
    strong computational skills are encouraged to apply. As this position is
    funded by an NIH training grant, only US citizens or permanent residents
    should apply. Salary level will be commensurate with previous experience.

    2) Research Assistantship in Left Atrial biomechanics. This is a fully
    funded doctoral-level student research position involving the study of left
    atrial (LA) biomechanics. This newly funded project will attempt to
    describe LA biomechanics at the organ, tissue, and molecular levels. Strong
    interactions with clinicians and basic scientists, as well as other McGowan
    Institute bioengineers are available. Exceptionally motivated students
    interested in pursuing doctoral studies with backgrounds/interests in
    cardiac biomechanics are encouraged to apply. We are particularly
    interested in students with Master's degrees wishing to pursue doctoral
