  • Research Assistant position announcement


    The Tissue Mechanics Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering
    at the University of Vermont has an immediate opening for a Laboratory
    Technician in the area of intervertebral disc bioengineering.

    The Laboratory Technician will support an NIH funded research project that
    addresses how mechanical forces affect intervertebral disc structure and
    composition in vivo. Responsibilities include participation in experiments
    on the intervertebral disc using mechanical, chemical, and imaging

    The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Vermont
    offers a stimulating environment for bioengineering in a beautiful New
    England setting. Several faculty in the Department maintain active research
    programs in orthopaedic and vascular bioengineering. Excellent facilities
    are available in the Department and through collaborators at the medical
    school a short walk across campus. The position comes with excellent
    benefits and tuition remission. Graduate studies in mechanical engineering,
    biomedical engineering, or other related field are encouraged.

    A strong interest in soft-tissue mechanics, structure, and composition is
    required. Good experimental skills are required. Experience in finite
    element modeling, the ability to design and fabricate testing equipment, or
    biochemical skills are highly desirable.

    Please apply immediately with cover letter and cv. For more information,
