A Post-Doctoral position is available at the Orthopaedic Bioengineering Lab, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School with possible extension up to 3 years. The responsibility of this position includes quantitatively investigation of the in-vivo hip/knee biomechanics in patients with total hip/knee arthroplasty, processing of CT/MRI images of patients to construct 3D anatomic models of the hip/knee and examining the optimal surgical implantation of replacements.

The potential candidate should possess a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering with graduate research experience on musculoskeletal joint biomechanics. Background in the hip/knee joint biomechanics is desirable, but not essential. The candidate should have experience in conducting human joint kinematics and kinetics evaluation using imaging technique and motion analysis technique, and the capability to coordinate between research engineers, students, clinicians as well as patients. The position may also include managing and coordinating activities for specific research protocol(s). The Post-Doctoral Research Fellow may help prepare IRB submissions and also develop, prepare, and maintain study material, individual participant files, and standard operating procedures for research projects.

For interested applicants, please submit CV with the names and contact information of three referees to: Tsai.Tsung-Yuan@mgh.harvard.edu No calls will be received.
