    Immediate Position Announcement

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Bone Biomechanics
    Department of Biomedical Engineering and
    Center for Computational Sciences
    Tulane University, New Orleans, LA

    Job Description:
    A postdoctoral research fellowship position is immediately available as of
    July 1, 2004 in a joint research project between Department of Biomedical
    Engineering and Center for Computational Sciences at Tulane University, New
    Orelans, LA. We are seeking highly motivated candidates to work with a
    team of researchers on the development of a high resolution computational
    model of bone adaptation and growth, which include transport process
    through porous medium. We plan to develop methods to allow for a hierarchy
    of spatial and temporal scales into the computational model. The
    successful applicant will integrate high resolution adaptive finite element
    models of the human femur and spine with dynamic models of calcium
    homeostasis and systemic drug treatments. The models will be evaluated
    using data obtained from animal experiments and clinical observations.
    Applications include design of total joint replacements, development of
    treatments for diseases such as osteoporosis and scoliosis, and study of
    biomechanical adaptation.

    This project is funded through an NIH pre-National Program of Excellence
    planning grant to the Center for Computational Sciences (CCS). The CCS is
    the first Center established in the Gulf region to focus on computational
    science research projects across many disciplines. The successful applicant
    will have the opportunity to collaborate on interdisciplinary projects and
    to gain experience in teaching at the graduate level in a team-taught
    course related to this project.

    A hard working individual with a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering or a
    closely related field. The candidate must have experience in the
    development and implementation of high resolution finite element models and
    image analysis. Eligible candidates should send a complete CV along with a
    list of three references (full names, addresses, and telephone numbers) to:

    J-K. Francis Suh, Ph.D.
