    POSITION IN SOFT TISSUE MUSCULOSKELETAL RESEARCH
    Bone and Joint Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
    Henry Ford Health System

    A Senior Bioscientific Staff position is available in the area of
    Soft Tissue Musculoskeletal Research. Qualifications include a Ph.D. in
    bioengineering, biology, anatomy or a related field with an emphasis on the
    in vivo mechanical and biological behaviour of musculoskeletal soft tissues.

    The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary team of five
    independently NIH funded investigators, with complementary programs
    examining various aspects of the musculoskeletal system. Clinical
    collaborations are with a strong, active orthopaedics group. The Bone and
    Joint Center has expertise and well-equipped facilities for motion analysis,
    biomechanics, musculoskeletal modelling, computational mechanics, 3D
    imaging, animal models, anatomy, cell biology, histology, biochemistry and
    molecular biology. In addition to excellent conventional facilities for
    supporting research in all of these areas, the researcher would have access
    to a unique stereo X-ray system designed for human in vivo measurement of
    bone, joint and soft tissue dynamics, with 3D accuracy of 0.1 mm and imaging
    rates up to 1000 frames/second. Academic appointments (at the
    assistant/associate/full professor level, depending on qualifications) are
    available through our affiliation with nearby Wayne State University.

    The applicant will be expected to develop an independent, NIH funded
    research program and collaborate with other Bone and Joint Center
    investigators. Preference will be given to applicants with:
    - postdoctoral experience
    - demonstrated research potential
    - a record of scholarly activity including peer-reviewed publications
    - a strong desire for multidisciplinary collaborations
    - expertise in experimental measurement of soft tissue behaviour
    - computational modelling skills

    Applicants should send their resume, a statement of their current and
    long-term research goals and the names and addresses of three references to
    the address below. Consideration of applicants is already underway, and will
    continue until the position is filled.

    For those interested in learning more about our research program, a list of
    our contributions to the 2003 Orthopaedic Research Society meeting in New
    Orleans (February 2-5) is provided below - we hope to see you there.
