    Research Technician in Intervertebral Disc Mechanobiology

    Spine Bioengineering Laboratory

    University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont, USA

    Applications are invited for a technician position in the area of
    intervertebral disc bioengineering. The position is 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. Responsibilities include support of ongoing
    projects, development of upcoming projects, and general lab management
    including ordering supplies and maintaining lab equipment and space.

    Applicants must possess some or all of the following qualifications: 1) A
    strong background in bioengineering, cell/molecular biology, or
    biochemistry; 2) Relevant experience or an advanced degree; 3) A
    demonstrated record of scholarly publication; 4) Strong interpersonal
    skills; 5) Demonstrated skills in PCR, experience working with animal models
    and/or tissue culture, and familiarity with materials testing are highly

    The position is available immediately, and applications will be reviewed
    beginning May 15 until the position is filled.

    Interested applicants should send a cover letter, complete resume and the
    contact information for 3 references to the address given below:
