  • UPenn faculty job - orthopedic biomechanics


    Orthopaedic Research Laboratory
    University of Pennsylvania

    The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory of the Department of Orthopaedic
    Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking applicants for a
    junior faculty position in orthopaedic biomechanics or tissue engineering.
    A secondary appointment in the Department of Bioengineering and membership
    in the Institute of Medicine and Engineering at the University is possible
    for the appropriate individual. This individual is expected to contribute
    to both teaching and research and to develop an independent extramurally
    funded research program as well as collaborate with both basic science and
    clinical faculty in the Laboratory. Applicants in all research areas will
    be considered and experience in soft tissues, tissue engineering, and/or
    upper extremity mechanics would be desirable.

    The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory is currently undergoing a major
    renovation including design of new laboratory facilities on campus,
    purchase of new equipment, and the addition of new faculty, staff, and
    students. The laboratories include capabilities for mechanical testing at
    large and small scales, device and component fabrication, and computing and
    image processing. Additional contiguous and collaborative orthopaedic
    research laboratory activities are devoted to biologic, biochemical,
    electron microscopic, tissue and cell culture, and histologic studies of
    both hard and soft tissues.

    Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering,
    Mechanics, or a related field. Outstanding graduate students nearing
    degree completion, current postdoctoral fellows, or junior faculty members
    are welcome to apply. Salary is very competitive and based on experience
    with an excellent fringe benefit package. A letter of interest briefly
    outlining career plans, a resume or curriculum vitae, and names and
    addresses of five references should be sent to:
