  • Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Research Positions inOrthopaedic Tissue Engineering at Notre Dame

    Graduate student and postdoctoral research positions in the area of
    orthopaedic mechanobiology and tissue engineering are available in the
    Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at the University of
    Notre Dame. Research areas include the use of mechanical loading to direct
    mesenchymal stem cell differentiation in a cartilage tissue engineering
    application, and the study of the biochemical pathways involved in
    mechanical load-induced differentiation.

    The graduate student researcher may begin enrollment in January 2007 or
    August 2007. A student with a strong undergraduate or masters level
    education in bioengineering or mechanical engineering will be well-prepared
    for this research. Qualified applicants must meet the admission
    requirements of the Graduate Program, which are detailed at
    Application directly to the graduate college is required.

    The postdoctoral position is available immediately. The position is for an
    initial one year with the possibility of renewal. Interested candidates
    may send their CV, possible start date, and the names and contact
    information of three references electronically to the email address
    below. Applicants should have completed a PhD in biomedical engineering or
    related field, preferably with a concentration in mechanobiology, tissue
    engineering, or stem cell therapeutics. A highly motivated candidate with
    an experimental background, a strong academic record, and the ability to
    work independently is sought. Experience with mammalian cell culture and
    molecular biology techniques is required. Good written and verbal
    communication skills are essential. Applicants will be expected to
    integrate into a multidisciplinary biomechanics laboratory comprised of
    faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduate students from both
    the AME department and the Department of Biological Science.

    Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
