  • Post-Doc Opportunity in Musculoskeletal Biomechanics/Imaging --Beth Israel Deaconess Med Center / Harvard Med School -- Boston

    IMMEDIATE OPENING FOR POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOW OR SENIOR RESEARCH
    ASSOCIATE IN MUSCULOSKELETAL BIOMECHANICS and/or IMAGING

    The Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and
    Harvard Medical School in Boston has an immediate opening for a
    post-doctoral research associate or senior research associate in the area of
    musculoskeletal biomechanics and imaging.

    A motivated and enthusiastic individual is needed to work on NIH-funded
    studies that are aimed at understanding the biomechanical aspects of
    skeletal fragility, in particular, the interaction between vertebral
    fractures and functional spinal loading. The study involves analysis of CT
    scans acquired as part of a large epidemiologic cohort of men and women aged
    35 to 90 yrs (the Framingham Heart Study); and development of kinematic
    models to assess functional loading in the spine. The project is highly
    multi-disciplinary, with opportunity for interaction with investigators in
    musculoskeletal and genetic epidemiology, osteoporosis, diabetes, and
    imaging.

    Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in biomedical or mechanical engineering,
    medical image analysis, or a closely related field, OR possess a masteršs
    degree and have prior research experience. Preference will be given to
    applicants with a proven record in musculoskeletal research.

    Applicants should apply by sending a cover letter outlining your research
    experience and interests, resume, and the names of three references via
    email to:
    Mary Bouxsein, Ph.D.
    Dept. of Orthopaedic Surgery, RN115
    Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
    330 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA 02215
    mbouxsei@bidmc.harvard.edu

    Applications will be considered until the position is filled. Inquiries
    welcome.
