  • Tenure Track Faculty Position, Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University, St. Louis

    The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine is expanding and recruiting new faculty at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor. Areas of interest are tissue engineering, stem cells and musculoskeletal disorders. The Department is ranked #1 in U.S. NIH funding and currently includes laboratories specialized in bone, cartilage and tendon biomechanics and biology ranging from developmental biology to diseases such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Washington University is located in St. Louis, Missouri, with a metropolitan area of 3 million people. The Medical School is close to parks, gardens, arts and theater organizations. Applicants with MD or PhD are welcome with a background in biomedical engineering, cell and molecular biology or physiology.
    Successful applicants would be required to establish an NIH-funded research program in an area that is complementary to programs in the Department, participate in educational programs, and collaborate with other research and clinical faculty in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience.

    Our Department has close ties with Basic Science Departments such as Cell Biology and Physiology and Developmental Biology, as well as the Medical School Graduate School: Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences, and the Engineering School, Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, and the Bone and Mineral Diseases Division of the Department of Medicine.

    The Department is a central component of the Core Center for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine grant from the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases funding facilities for specialized skeletal histology, functional testing of skeletal tissues and construction of mouse models for musculoskeletal studies. Members of the Department are highly interactive.
