    Post-Doctoral Position in Spine Biomechanics

    Orthopaedic Biomechanics Laboratory
    Department of Mechanical Engineering
    University of California, Berkeley

    A one-year post-doc position is available immediately (April, 1998) for
    study of the biomechanical behavior of the human vertebral body including
    the intervertebral disk. Specifically, the goal of this research is to
    investigate the effects of localized damage and repair on the strength and
    stiffness of the vertebral body, including the effects of loading
    conditions. Techniques to be used include quantitative computed
    tomography-based finite element analysis and in vitro mechanical testing of
    isolated vertebral bodies and whole spinal motion segments. Models are
    expected to include bone-specific spatial distributions of trabecular bone
    properties, as well as non-linear poroelastic behavior of the vertebral
    disk. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering,
    Bioengineering, or the equivalent, with a focus on solid mechanics and
    finite element modeling. Prior experience with mechanical testing of human
    tissue and quantitative computed tomography scanning is preferable but not
    required since comprehensive training will be provided in these areas. This
    position will provide substantial expertise in the biomechanical behavior
    of the vertebral body including the disk with an integrative approach of
    experiments, computation, and analytical modeling. The Berkeley Orthopaedic
    Biomechanics Laboratory provides a lively academic and research environment
    with substantial ties to the nearby UCSF medical school, particularly the
    Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Radiology, and has active
    collaborations with local biotech companies. This position can be extended
    to a second year pending additional funding.

    To apply, please send a resumé before March 30 with the names, addresses,
    and phone numbers of two references to the address below. If attending the
    1998 Pre-ORS Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic
    Biomechanics, at Tulane University, please send in a resumé by March 6 so
    that an interview can be arranged for there. In the meanwhile, please visit
    our website at for details of the
