    Post-doctoral Fellowship and Research Associate positions in Intervertebral
    Disc Mechanobiology

    Spine Bioengineering Laboratory

    Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont,

    Applications are invited for the positions of Postdoctoral Fellow and
    Research Associate in the area of intervertebral disc bioengineering. The
    positions are funded through an NIH grant and the general aims of the
    research are to investigate the influence of mechanical signals on the
    remodeling response of intervertebral disc cells in order to isolate those
    factors that accelerate degenerative disc disease and cause low back pain.
    Specific projects include investigations of the mechanics and biology of the
    intervertebral disc with animal and cell/tissue culture models, and the
    development of finite element models of the intervertebral disc and its
    cellular environment.

    Applicants must possess some or all of the following qualifications: 1) A
    strong background in bioengineering, cell/molecular biology, or
    biochemistry; 2) A PhD is required for the Post-doctoral Fellowship; an
    advanced degree and/or significant relevant experience is required for the
    Research Associate position; 3) A demonstrated record of scholarly
    publication; 4) Strong interpersonal skills and demonstrated ability to
    supervise students/staff; 5) Demonstrated skills in PCR, experience working
    with animal models and/or tissue culture, and familiarity with materials
    testing are highly desirable.

    The University of Vermont has extensive resources in the areas of system,
    tissue, and cellular bioengineering. Collaboration with the Department of
    Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation, other departments at the University of
    Vermont, and with the AO Research Institute (Davos, Switzerland) are

    Interested applicants should send a complete resume, including a list of
    publications, 2 representative publications, and the contact information for
    3 references to the address given below. Job will be open until filled,
    review of applications will begin January 15, 2005.
