  • Junior Professor/Group Leader in Mechanobiology

    ************ Group Leader in Mechanobiology ************

    Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

    The Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery (CMSC) is seeking to appoint a
    highly motivated, ambitious individual to lead the Mechanobiology
    division of our research laboratories in 2007. The primary focus of the
    group is trauma and orthopaedic biomechanics with particular expertise
    in experimental and computational analysis of tissue regeneration during
    bone and osteochondral defect healing.

    The Mechanobiology Group occupies a unique position within the CMSC
    interfacing between musculoskeletal biomechanics and cell biology. The
    goal of the group is to understand the influence of mechanics on
    musculoskeletal tissue regeneration in different healing situations e.g.
    fracture and bone defect healing, osteochondral defect healing and
    tendon-bone healing. A further aim is to develop and test therapies to
    assist regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues, through mechanical,
    biological and material means.

    The Mechanobiology Group is an emerging group currently consisting of 3
    research assistants (1 postdoc and 2 PhD students). In addition, the
    successful candidate as group leader will have the opportunity to
    further shape the group with the appointment of 2 new positions. With a
    number of exciting projects scheduled to begin in 2007, this position is
    ideal for the post-doctoral researcher looking to fast-track his or her
    career with an ultimate freedom in research. The CMSC is involved in a
    number of collaborations with both excellent clinical research
    colleagues in-house and a number of scientific specialists from external
    institutes in the Berlin region.

    The ideal candidate should have a PhD in a relevant area, a proven
    publication record, supervision experience, and the enthusiasm and drive
    to carry out research and to lead in an exciting, highly professional
    and multidisciplinary environment. Based on qualifications the candidate
    can be appointed as either a Junior Professor (salary grade BAT Ib) or a
    Group Leader, depending upon her/his expertise.

    Since their conception some ten years ago, the research laboratories of
    the Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery have grown into a group of over
    35 personnel under the guidance of Professor Georg N. Duda. The
    successful applicant will therefore become part of a highly motivated
    interdisciplinary team in an extremely successful scientific working
