  • Postdoctoral Researcher in Orthopaedics at Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey PA

    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the area of orthopaedic biomechanics and computation. The position is within the Division of Musculoskeletal Sciences, Department of Orthopaedics, at the Penn State College of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Gregory Lewis, PhD. The area of research is the computational and/or experimental study of the biomechanical environment in skeletal tissue. Related opportunity exists in the development of simulation technology for orthopaedic education. (Lewis Lab:

    Ample opportunities exist for collaboration with orthopaedic clinicians, basic scientists, and engineers. The Division of Musculoskeletal Sciences includes six research faculty, and associated staff and students, supported by grants from the NIH and NASA, among others. Available facilities include mechanical testing machines, high performance computational resources, in vivo micro-computed tomography, dedicated cadaveric facilities, motion analysis, and histomorphometric analysis equipment, in addition to a full array of shared Core Facilities.

    The successful candidate will possess a background in engineering and/or computation and the desire and ability to independently pursue novel research.

    Penn State’s annual research expenditures total more than $800 million, including more than $100 million at the College of Medicine. The College of Medicine and Medical Center is located in Hershey, Pennsylvania, close to Harrisburg, and within a 2-3 hour drive to Philadelphia, Washington, and New York City.
