  • UPenn research engineer job - orthopaedic biomechanics


    Orthopaedic Research Laboratory
    University of Pennsylvania

    The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania is
    seeking an individual to fill a full time research engineer position. This
    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. Responsibilities for this
    available position include implementation and management of several
    interdisciplinary orthopaedic biomechanics research projects and for
    advising, supervising, and collaborating with others on such
    investigations. Collaborators include both basic science and clinical
    faculty, technicians, students, residents, and fellows. This individual
    will serve as laboratory manager and report to the laboratory director.
    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.

    The ideal candidate has a Masters Degree in Biomedical or Mechanical
    Engineering or related discipline and a minimum of two years additional
    research experience in biomechanics or a related field. Experience in soft
    tissues, tissue engineering, and/or upper extremity mechanics, as well as
    mechanical testing, device fabrication, computer skills, and basic
    statistics are all desirable but not required. Salary is very competitive
    and based on experience with an excellent fringe benefit package. The
    position will be filled as soon as the appropriate individual is
    identified, ideally prior to January 1, 1998.

    Interested and qualified applicants should send a letter, curriculum vitae
    or resume, and names and addresses of at least three references to:
