    (Updated from previous posting)

    Children's Hospital and Health Center announces an exceptional opportunity
    for a full-time Biomechanical Engineer to participate in work at three
    collaborating laboratories in San Diego, California. The labs include a
    new Orthopaedic Biomechanics Testing Laboratory being developed at
    Children's, the Motion Analysis Laboratory at Children's, and the Joint
    Mechanics Laboratory of the Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation. The
    engineer will be responsible for developing, maintaining, and utilizing
    instrumentation and software for laboratory measurements, with principle
    emphasis at the Orthopaedic Biomechanics Testing Lab and Joint Mechanics
    Lab. The specific responsibilities will include the design, development,
    and maintenance of equipment, the design and programming of data collection
    and analysis software, and other engineering analyses for laboratory
    projects. This position is the first line of technical support for other
    staff, as well as an intermediary to management and between sites.

    The position requires training in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical
    Engineering, or a related field. Candidates should have at least a
    Master's degree, or a Bachelor's degree with significant experience.
    Qualifications should include knowledge and skills with computer systems
    and programming, and experience in biomechanics research, especially joint
    kinematics and mechanical testing. Excellent teaching, communication and
    problem solving skills are also highly desired.

    To learn more, please contact Judy Leach at (619) 576-5822. Note also that
    representatives from each lab will be attending the Orthopaedic Research
    Society meeting March 16-19 in New Orleans. To apply, please send a cover
