  • UPenn grad studentships - orthopaedic biomechanics


    Orthopaedic Research Laboratory
    University of Pennsylvania

    The Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania is
    seeking applicants for graduate student research assistantships in
    Bioengineering or Mechanical Engineering. 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.

    Research areas include orthopaedic biomechanics or tissue engineering.
    Some examples of specific research projects include: structure-function
    relationships in tendons and ligaments using transgenic mouse models,
    mechanical testing, and mathematical modeling; investigations on rotator
    cuff injury and healing; biologic and mechanical alterations to tendon and
    tendon-to-bone attachment injury and repair; biomechanics of the shoulder
    and elbow joints.

    Applicants should have a Bachelors or Masters Degree in Bioengineering,
    Mechanical Engineering, Mechanics, or a related field. Outstanding
    students are encouraged to apply to the Departments of Bioengineering or
    Mechanical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. A letter of
    interest and a resume or curriculum vitae should also be sent to:
