  • Postdoctoral research associate; in-vivo spine biomechanics

    Bone and Joint Center
    Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
    Henry Ford Health System

    A Post-Doctoral Research Associate position is available in the area of
    in-vivo spine biomechanics. Qualifications include a PhD
    in bioengineering, mechanical engineering, or a related field with an
    emphasis on the mechanical and biological behavior of the spine or
    intervertebral disc.

    The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary team of five
    investigators with complementary research programs examining various
    aspects of the musculoskeletal system. The Bone and Joint Center has
    expertise and well-equipped facilities for motion analysis, biomechanics,
    musculoskeletal modeling, computational mechanics, 3D imaging, animal
    models, cell biology, histology, biochemistry and molecular biology. In
    addition to excellent conventional facilities for supporting research in
    all of these areas, the post-doctoral research associate will have access
    to a unique biplane x-ray system designed for human in-vivo measurement of
    bone and joint mechanics. Preliminary testing with this system indicates
    that in-vivo spine motion can be measured with a model-based tracking
    technique (i.e., a technique that does not require any implanted markers)
    to a 3D accuracy of within approximately 0.5 mm and 1°.

    Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated research
    potential, a record of scholarly activity including peer-reviewed
    publications, a strong desire for multidisciplinary collaborations, and
    expertise in experimental measurement of spine biomechanics. Applicants
    should send their CV, a statement of their long-term research goals, and
    the names and addresses of three references to the address below.
    Consideration of applicants will continue until the position is
    filled. Electronic applications will not be accepted.
