Well, so much for formatting my last positing in an easy-to-read manner!
It has also been pointed out that the URL for the web site had the
"slashes" facing backwards.

So, with the recent trend to post position announcements twice :-)
let me try again:


The Department of Biomedical Engineering, within the Research Institute at
The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, announces an available faculty position for
an individual with specialization in the area of Biomechanics. The level of
the appointment will be commensurate with the candidate's qualifications.
An attractive start-up package is available. The successful candidate must
be an independent investigator, who has established his/her own research
program, is willing to contribute to existing research programs and be
involved with graduate student training. Presently, biomechanics research
in the Department of Biomedical Engineering includes studies of the effects
of aging on mobility, the effects of diabetes on connective tissues, nervous
system control of skeletal muscle, and the effects of musculoskeletal
loading on bone architecture and composition. This work includes human
and animal experimentation and mathematical modeling. Applicants must
hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in bioengineering, biomedical engineering,
mechanical engineering, or a related discipline, have a demonstrated history
of publication in his/her specialization area, and demonstrated ability to
pursue and secure extramural research funding. Excellent verbal and
written communication skills are essential. The Department of Biomedical
Engineering homepage, to which the Biomechanics homepage is linked,
can be accessed at


Candidates should submit a curriculum vita, a brief statement detailing
research interests, and have three letters of recommendation sent to

Brian L. Davis, Ph.D.,
Biomechanics Search Committee,
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Wb3,
The Cleveland Clinic Foundation,
9500 Euclid Avenue,
