  • Research Engineer, Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit)

    The Bone and Joint Center at the Henry Ford Health System is seeking a full-time research engineer. The ideal candidate will have a background in biomedical or mechanical engineering and a strong interest in the biomechanics of human movement. This individual will be involved with all aspects of research being conducted in the Motion Analysis Laboratory. Responsibilities include project planning, equipment design, software development, patient testing, data analysis, grant writing and manuscript preparation. A Masters degree and experience in orthopaedic research, human movement analysis, sports biomechanics or motor control are desirable. Experience with computer programming or laboratory equipment design are desirable but not required.

    The Motion Analysis Laboratory includes a stereo x-ray digital imaging system for high-speed analysis of dynamic in-vivo joint function, two 1000 frame/sec digital video cameras, a 5-camera 240 frame/sec 3D video-motion analysis system, force platforms, EMG, and extensive computer hardware/software for data collection and visualization. Primary research interests are in orthopaedic/sports biomechanics as related to joint and soft-tissue function, disease, injury and repair.

    The Bone and Joint Center has six PhD investigators and (currently) three post-doctoral fellows. The faculty include two biomedical engineers, two biochemists, a cell biologist, and an anatomist. Other laboratory facilities include: mechanical testing facility, electronics and machine shop, biochemistry laboratory, cell culture laboratory, computational facility, microcomputed tomography system, scanning electron microscope facility, confocal microscope, and histology laboratory with full optical microscope facility. The laboratory is associated with a large, research-oriented clinical orthopaedics department and the Henry Ford Hospital Center for Athletic Medicine.

    The position is available immediately and will be filled as soon as an appropriate candidate is identified. Salary is competitive and based on experience with an excellent benefits package.
