    POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN MUSCULOSKELETAL SCIENCE,
    Center for Implant Biomechanics and Biomaterials
    Hannover Medical School
    Hannover, Germany

    Position: POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP IN MUSCULOSKELETAL SCIENCE
    Organization: Center for Implant Biomechanics and Biomaterials
    Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hannover Medical School, MHH
    Location: Hannover, Germany

    Description:

    Applications are invited to apply for a post-doctoral fellowship position
    within the Center for Implant Biomechanics and Biomaterials in the
    Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Hannover Medical School,
    Hannover,
    Germany.

    The main topic of research is focused on the Implant-Bone interface of
    Endoprotheses and osteosynthesis implants. Specific projects involve
    molecular stimulation
    of bone integration and fracture healing, surface coating, molecular
    stimulation
    of bone integration, resorbable implant technology as well as related
    enoprosthetic
    joint kinematics.

    The candidate will be part of a collaborative group of investigators
    supported by the
    newly funded collaborative research center "SFB 955 Medical Technology"
    (Sonderforschungsbereich 599). This center unites institutes and
    researchers with expertise
    in the areas of: biomechanics, computational mechanics, biomaterials,
    animal models, anatomy,
    cell biology, histology, biochemistry and molecular biology.

    Duties and responsibilities, which are to be performed under minimal
    supervision, will include:
    1) conducting animal experiments, mechanical tests on biological tissues
    and troubleshooting related experimental problems, 2) acquiring
    micro-computed tomography images of biological samples,
    performing FEM analyses and developing different problems, 3) analysis of
    specimens for histology and biochemistry, 4) preparing manuscripts and
    abstracts for publication, and, 5) maintaining accurate and efficient
    instrumentation for carrying out the experiments. The main responsibility
    of the applicant
    will be within the biomechanics section of the center. However, he/she
    will also
    work in close collaboration with other sections and principal
    investigators of the center. The
    successful applicant is encouraged to develop projects in his/her own
    areas of interest.

    Qualifications:

    Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, Biomaterials, Biology
    or a medical
    or veterinarian degree, or a related field. Research experience in
    musculoskeletal
    Science is desired. Developed skills in one or more areas of animal
    models
    on bone implant fixation and fracture healing, bone histology, tissue
    mechanics,
    and mechanical testing are desirable. Also, experience in molecular
    stimulation
    of bone remodeling or fracture healing would be interesting. German
    language
    skills are favorable.
