  • PhD assistantships available, Computational Biomechanics Lab,U of Denver

    The Computational Biomechanics lab at the University of Denver is seeking
    motivated students to pursue doctoral degrees in mechanical or biomedical
    engineering. The assistantships cover tuition, health insurance, and a
    competitive stipend. Review of applicants will continue until the positions
    are filled.

    Desired qualifications include:
    * MS degree in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering
    * Knowledge of finite element analysis and proficiency with commercial FE
    codes. Experience with custom code development and/or custom scripting of
    commercial FE packages preferred.
    * Knowledge of knee, hip, spine, or shoulder biomechanics
    * Proficiency with programming languages (C, C++, Python)
    * Proficiency with probabilistic methods, multi-body dynamics simulation,
    and/or nonlinear optimization techniques would be considered advantageous
    * Excellent oral/written communication and interpersonal skills required

    The computational biomechanics lab contains state-of-the-art computational
    hardware and software tools. Current research interests are in the
    development, verification, and application of probabilistic finite element
    models to asses natural and implanted joint mechanics. To apply, please
    email a curriculum vitae and brief statement of research interests and
    experience to Dr. Paul Rullkoetter at Please feel free to
    email for further information.
