    DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPEDIC SURGERY
    RUSH UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER , CHICAGO , IL

    FULL TIME RESEARCH ENGINEER SPECIALIZING IN BIOMECHANICS

    The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center is
    currently seeking a full-time research engineer specializing in
    biomechanics. We are currently accepting applications for this immediate
    opening and will continue until the position is filled.
    Our laboratory conducts interdisciplinary studies covering a broad range of
    hard and soft connective tissues: including exploration of mechanisms of
    low back pain, testing of new technologies in the treatment of chronic
    disease using both cadaveric experimentation and in vivo imaging of
    patients, basic science investigations on soft tissue mechanics, healing
    and repair using animal models, as well as studies on human joint stability
    (e.g. shoulder, elbow and knee) including the effects of surgical
    procedures. The lab also performs industrial-supported biomechanical
    studies in collaboration with orthopedic surgeons and researchers from
    other departments.
    Duties include providing support for principle investigators and senior
    staff in conducting biomechanical experiments and assisting in data
    collection, analysis and database management. Additional responsibilities
    include management of daily laboratory activities, handling any problems
    which occur during the workday for staff regarding their equipment and
    environment, weekly routine safety checks, upkeep of laboratory and office
    supply inventory, ordering and processing of tissue samples and training
    and mentoring students, residents and fellows in biomechanical
    experimentation. Prior experience using material testing systems (Instron,
    MTS, etc.) is required. Knowledge or the ability to learn the data
    acquisition/motion control software LabView and MatLab is desirable.
    Additionally, the ability to provide assistance in conducting statistical
    analyses and preparing manuscripts, grant proposals, abstracts, posters and
    IRB protocols is a plus.
    Qualifications : Candidate with BS degree in Mechanical or Biomedical
    Engineering, Biomechanics or related engineering disciplines with a
    particularly strong background in biomechanical testing of biologic tissues
    are encourage to apply. Good oral and written communication skills and the
    ability to work either independently or within a multidisciplinary team are
    essential. The ideal candidate will have strong organizational and
    technical skills. Salary will commensurate with previous experience and
    within institutional guidelines.

    Interested and qualified applicants should send a letter, curriculum vitae
    or resume and names and addresses of at least three references to:
