    Research Engineer/Biomechanist Position Open, Houston, Texas

    The Institute of Orthopedic Research and Education in Houston, Texas has several immediate openings, from entry level to senior level, for engineers interested in orthopedic biomechanics research. The laboratory is dedicated to the design and evaluation of total joint replacement systems. Areas of
    focus include simulation of prosthetic function during functional activities in cadaveric models, fixation of designed components into their host bones and quantitative analysis of surgical procedures. Experimental studies are conducted in conjunction with dynamic computer simulation, finite
    element analysis, and 3D visualization of joint motion before and after total hip or knee replacement. The successful applicant will report to Philip C. Noble, PhD, the Director of Research.

    Specific duties include:

    1) Perform experimental and theoretical research studies in biomechanics and/or biomaterials.
    2) Analyze experimental data.
    3) Develop computer visualization and simulation software routines.

    4) Assist in the computer-aided design (CAD) of custom testing devices, TKA and THA instrumentation, and prototype components.
    5) Develop and construct experimental testing devices, both hardware and software.
    6) Collaborate with engineers, staff, residents, fellows and faculty in performing research studies.

    The desired candidates should have a degree in mechanical or biomedical engineering with knowledge and experience in research design and analysis and an interest in orthopedic biomechanics. Matlab and CAD experience preferred. Knowledge and experience with mechanical equipment and electronics is
    highly advantageous.

    Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Qualified applicants should send a cover letter, and resume or cv to the attention of:
