  • Ph.D. student in bone micromechanics: last call

    The Institute for Lightweight Design and Structural Biomechanics in
    Vienna, Austria, seeks two highly motivated Ph.D. students in bone
    micromechanics to fill two positions for 3 years each.

    A Ph.D. student with outstanding experimental skills and another
    Ph.D. student with strong expertise in computational mechanics are
    looked for to investigate structure-function relationships of
    lamellar bone. The experimental track will apply state of the art
    microscopy techniques and nanoindentation to quantify morphological
    and mechanical properties of bone tissue, while the computational
    track will focus on micromechanical techniques to model the measured
    mechanical response from the underlying morphology.

    Both candidates will be involved in a multidisciplinary and
    international research network in bone basic science, will have the
    opportunity to attend scientific conferences and will be able to
    extend their education in numerous aspects of tissue biomechanics.

    The candidates must hold a Masterís Degree or an equivalent European
    Engineering Diploma in mechanical engineering, physics engineering,
    material science, biomedical engineering or a related field.
    Knowledge of the German language and European Union citizenship are
    useful, but NOT mandatory.The Vienna University of Technology aims to
    increase the proportion of women in its scientific personnel and
    explicitly encourages qualified women to apply for this position.

    Please send your application, including a letter of motivation and
    complete CV, before December 1st 2006, to
