  • PhD Student Position in Surgical Instrumentation/Biomechanics

    MEM Research Center for Orthopaedic Surgery, Institute for Surgical
    Technology and Biomechanics, University of Bern, Switzerland

    By the beginning of autumn 2007 a new PhD Student position will be
    available at the Institute for Surgical Technology and Biomechanics
    in the area of biomechanics of the human spine.
    The general aim of this PhD-project is to design and develop
    intelligent, active mechatronic devices for intra-operative usage
    during spinal interventions e.g. for the in-vivo quantification of
    spinal instability in humans. The project requires primarily a
    mechanics background as well as experiences in robotics. Furthermore,
    a significant knowledge in computer science in combination with a
    strong motivation to work in a multidisciplinary field and a fluent
    English language are mandatory.
    Dr. Jens Kowal from the Institute for Surgical Technology and
    Biomechanics in collaboration with Dr. med. Daniel Haschtmann from
    the Salemspital in Bern will supervise the project.
    For application or further details, please contact Dr. Jens Kowal
    (jk@memcenter.unibe.ch). Applicants should register their interest
    by submitting a letter of motivation, an up-to-date curriculum vitae,
    and, if available, references from former supervisors.
