    Engineer Position - Biomechanics Laboratory, Department of Orthopedic
    Surgery, University of California at San Francisco

    The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of California at San
    Francisco is seeking a developmental engineer/ technician with knowledge
    and experience in experimental orthopedic biomechanics or related areas. The
    major responsibilities of the position include: 1) set-up and execution of
    experiments relating to the biomechanics of human body movement and
    human body impact; 2) the design of mechanical fixtures and installation of
    transducers for the measurement of human body motions and forces; 3) the
    programming of data acquisition software; and 4) the analysis of
    experimental data. The position requires close interaction with engineering
    and medical faculty and students.

    Candidates should have strong interests in the biomechanics of impact and
    injury and the mechanics of human movement, which are major areas of
    laboratory research. Candidates should have knowledge of basic engineering
    mechanics, and experience in the design and construction of mechanical
    testing equipment and interfacing of electrical and mechanical transducers
    with computers for data acquisition (knowledge of LabView is an asset).
    Additional desired qualifications include experience in computer
    programming (C, Pascal, or FORTRAN), knowledge of basic statistics, and
    strong oral and written communication skills, including data presentation.
    Candidates should ideally have 3-5 years experience in an experimental
    laboratory setting, preferably related to biomechanics.

    The salary for the position is very competitive, with an excellent benefits
    package from the University of California. Interested applicants should mail
    resumes to: Stephen Robinovitch, Ph.D., Biomechanics Laboratory,
    Division of Orthopedic Surgery, San Francisco General Hospital, Room
    3A36, 1001 Potrero Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94110. Requests for more
    information may be sent to

    The University of California is an equal opportunity employer. Minority
    groups, women, and handicapped individuals are encouraged to apply.
