    Seeking Post-doctoral Fellow or Senior Research Associate in Spine
    Biomechanics / Vertebral Fractures:

    The Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical
    Center seeks a postdoctoral fellow interested in spine biomechanics, spine
    modeling, QCT imaging and osteoporotic vertebral fractures. The individual
    will be part of a team conducting a large-scale NIH-funded research project
    aimed at improving our understanding of the clinical and biomechanical
    factors that lead to vertebral fractures in the elderly.

    Job Requirements:
    The candidate must possess a PhD degree in biomechanics, bioengineering,
    mechanical engineering or other related field, or have a MS degree in these
    same fields with at least 3 years research experience. The candidate must
    have excellent computer proficiency. Experience with biomechanical models of
    the spine is desirable, as is familiarity with Matlab, C++, and Linux.
    Candidates should have outstanding organizational and communication skills,
    and be prepared to take lead authorship on manuscripts. Prior experience
    with medical imaging is an advantage, but not required.
