    Laboratory Head/Co-ordinator and Research Engineer

    The Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory (BBL) of the Department of
    Orthopaedics, Lund University, Sweden, is seeking a Research Engineer and
    Laboratory Head/Co-ordinator. The appointee will provide technical
    expertise/leadership and scientific assistance in the management, design and
    conduct of the Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory’s research programme in
    projects involving musculoskeletal disorders and their treatment. The
    Biomechanics and Biomaterials Laboratory is based in Lund University Hospital
    and has extensive collaborations with Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry and
    Polymer Technology in the Faculty of Technology (LTH) and with the Biomedical
    Research Centre (BMC) of Lund University. It is part of the Centre for
    Biomechanics at Lund University (CBML) and brings together all these expertises
    to investigate musculoskeletal problems of clinical relevance. The appointee
    will be responsible for initiating projects, providing engineering input into
    clinical problems and the supervision of biomechanics project students from LTH
    and the medical school, all in close collaboration with orthopaedic surgeons. In
    the BBL there are mechanical testing facilities and materials production
    equipment with FEA analysis facilities available. In immediate proximity to BBL
    are the Lund RSA Centre and a gait analysis laboratory. The position would suit
    someone with at least a few years post-doctoral (or equivalent) experience
    looking to develop their own research projects and their career.
