  • Graduate Opportunities at Univ. of Rochester

    The Biomedical Engineering Program and Department of Mechanical Engineering
    at the University of Rochester seek candidates to fill several fully funded
    slots in our graduate program leading to the doctoral degree and starting
    in the fall, 1999. Support for each position includes tuition, stipend and
    health insurance. Completed applications are being accepted until Feb. 1,
    1999 and decisions will be made by April 1999. Exceptional students may be
    selected for fellowships with higher stipends.

    The Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering
    at the University of Rochester includes more than 40 affiliated faculty
    offering advanced training in cell and tissue engineering, medical imaging
    and medical optics. Training consists of formal coursework in both
    biological and engineering sciences, opportunities to engage in hands on
    research experience during laboratory rotations and in a first year
    graduate laboratory course. Specific research areas of the faculty include:
    biomechanics of bone growth and soft tissue, cellular mechanics,
    microcirculatory rheology, extracellular matricx interactions and influence
    on tissue growth, mechanisms of visual perception, photodynamic therapy,
    technology assisted surgery, medical image processing, and 3D4D
    medical imaging, including MRI, ultrasound and other advanced modalities in
    medical imaging. For more information about the Graduate Program in
    Biomedical Engineering and application procedures see our website at

    Students interested in pursuing graduate degrees in Mechanical Engineering
    may also apply to the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Research areas
    in biomechanics include: medical image based computational modeling of
    orthopaedic and cardiac tissues and structures, modeling of growth,
    experimental investigations of the influence of mechanical factors on bone
    development, sonoelastic imaging, wave propogation in lithotripsy, and
    oxygen transport. Opportunites for coursework in biomedical sciences,
    material science and engineering sciences exist in the School of
    Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
