    TimesThe Institute of Orthopedic Research
    and Education is searching for an engineer to support ongoing
    laboratory and clinical investigations. Current investigations include:
    musculo-skeletal function of nornal and artificial knee joints;
    mechanical testing of orthopedic instrumentation; fatigue testing of
    biomaterials; quantitative anatomical, kinematic, and surgical planning
    studies of the hip and knee; experimental surgical procedures; creation
    of 3D volumentic data from CT scan data; and development of new
    implants. The engineer will work with the Director of Research, staff
    orthopedic surgeons, orthopedic residents, orthopedic fellows, and
    industrial collaborators. Responsibilities will include: study design;
    design, construction and use of mechanical testing systems to simulate
    knee loading and motion; data analysis; writing technical reports and
    academic papers; and communicating with academic, clinical and
    industrial collaborators. Desired skills include mechanical design,
    mechanical testing, data acquisition and analysis, image processing,
    and technical writing. All specific skills will be taught. A Master's
    degree in a biomedical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer
    science or related field is preferred. Salary will be based on skills,
