    Postdoctoral Position in Joint Kinematics at the
    Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
    Hannover Medical School
    Hannover, Germany
    ************************************************** **************
    The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Hannover Mediocal School
    is seeking qualified applicants for a minimum 2 year appointment in
    The position opens immediatley. Specifically, the successful applicant
    will head the joint kinematics research group at the biomechanics
    A major focus of this reasearch group will be to develop advanced in-vitro
    simulations of shoulder motion, preferably using robot techniques.
    The validated simulation will be used for answering research questions
    regarding muscle/ ligament function and shoulder protheses design.
    The second focus will be on research questions adressing foot and
    ankle joint kinematics. This work will include applied research with
    an already existing dynamic foot/ankle motion apparatus.

    The Department at Hannover Medical School is a major center for
    Orthopaedic Surgery in Germany. Its biomechanics laboratory
    represents a multi-disciplinary research facility involved in basic and
    applied research including joint kinematics, cartilage and bone
    tissue engineering and spinal reasearch.

    Candidates should have an earned doctorate in bioengineering,
    engineering, or a related field. Requirements should preferably
    include expertise in joint kinematics,
    robotics, tracking devices, mechanical testing, including mathematical,
    analytical and approximation methods as well as in vitro and in vivo
    experimental protocols. Experience in shoulder or foot biomechanics,
    in particular related to protheses design/evaluation
    would be welcome.
    The position is funded for 2 and ½ years with the option for another year
    and will
    open immediately. The department has interest to establish a long lasting
    The salary will be approx. US $45000, according to german standard BAT
