Sorry for any headerless reading.

Mark C. Miller

In conjunction with the Department of Neurological Surgery, the
Mechanical Engineering Department has support for a student
to pursue doctoral work in the computational modeling of arterial blood flow.
The research will focus on the finite element modeling of blood flow to
examine the factors involved in the formation of saccular "berry" aneurysms.
Computational models also will be used to assess the effects of
medical/surgical therapies in the treatment of saccular aneurysms.

A master's degree in a related field is prerequisite and
willingness to work in an interdisciplinary environment is
necessary. Previous experience with the use of the finite element
analysis as well as a theoretical background in the method is required.

The need to fill the position by 1 January, 1996 is anticipated.
