    Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Bone Biomechanics

    Position Description
    A postdoctoral position in bone biomechanics is available at the Hard
    Tissue Biomechanics Laboratory, the University of Texas at San Antonio
    (UTSA), which is located in the central Texas and a fast growing and
    dynamic teaching and research university in the region. This position
    will focus on use of synchrotron x-ray scattering techniques to
    characterize the in situ mechanical behavior of bone and to elucidate
    age-related changes in bone quality at ultrastructural levels. The
    incumbent of the position will be mainly responsible for designing and
    conducting experiments, data processing, and interpretation using the
    synchrotron x-ray facilities at Advanced Photon Sources of Argonne
    National Laboratory, Chicago. In addition, s/he will be required to help
    writing technical papers and research grants and to supervise graduate
    and undergraduate students working in the laboratory. The initial
    appointment of this position is one year starting on August 1, 2010, and
    the extension of the position is possible pending for future funding.
    The salary and other benefits are negotiable and highly competitive.

    Applicants with a PhD in physics, biomedical engineering, mechanical
    engineering, and materials science will be considered. The successful
    candidate should have extensive research experience in bone tissue
    mechanics and basic skills in conducting mechanical tests and image
    processing of bone. Background in x-ray diffraction is highly desirable.
