    Research Assistant - Biomechanics

    A graduate student in biomechanics, engineering, computer science
    or related science, is needed for a 1/2 time position to assist in
    biomedical research that aims to define the effect of anthropometric
    parameters, age race and sex in the size and density of bones of children.

    This study is done at the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and

    techniques to in vivo calculate the volume and structural and biological
    quality of the bones in the appendicular and axial skeleton.

    Knowledge of FEA techniques, OS/2 or Windows "C" or "C++" object
    oriented programming, image processing, statistical techniques, and
    research protocol a must. Knowledge of musculo-skeletal anatomy and
    physiology preferred.
