  • Graduate Student Opportunities: Calgary


    Applications are invited for Graduate Student Assistantships for a joint
    project with Dr. Steven Boyd of the Faculty of Engineering and Dr.
    Benedikt Hallgrimsson of the Faculty of Medicine. The focus of the
    project is to develop high-throughput quantitative morphological tools
    for assessment of genetic defects and phenotypic variation in skeletal
    shape. Research will involve use of novel in vivo micro-computed
    tomography and development and application of unique numerical and
    analytical techniques. Applicants have the opportunity to register in
    either the Faculty of Medicine or Faculty of Engineering, depending on
    their relevant background and expertise. Appropriate backgrounds
    include engineering, computer science, physics, evolutionary biology,
    and biological anthropology.

    The University of Calgary has extensive Biomedical Engineering resources
    in areas of biomedical engineering, cell and molecular biology and
    computer analyses. There are opportunities for collaboration within the
    Joint Injuries and Arthritis Research Group in the Faculty of Medicine,
    the Human Performance Laboratory and the new Calgary Centre for
    Innovative Technology. Students may register in engineering or medical
    sciences as part of the graduate program in Biomedical Engineering.
    Teaching and training opportunities will be available in support of the
    University's new undergraduate degree programs in Biomedical Engineering
    and Batchelor of Health Sciences Program.

    The City of Calgary is nestled in the foothills of the majestic Rocky
    Mountains and is approximately an hour away from world class skiing and
    hiking, outstanding camping, golf and the beautiful scenery of
    Kananaskis Country and Banff National Park. Calgary and surrounds have a
    population of approximately 1 million. Calgary is the fastest growing
    city in Canada ranking third in Canadian cities for major head offices
    of large companies in Canada and has a reputation for being dynamic and
    entrepreneurial. The main industries are energy, hi-tech communication
    and agriculture with Calgary remaining a very western flavoured community.

    For consideration, please submit a full C.V. to Dr. Boyd with the names
    and phone numbers of at least two references, as well as a statement of
    research interests and career goals. Please reference “RE: CIHR Micro-CT
    Morphology Project” at the top of your statement.
