  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship Available, Computational Biomechanics, Univ of Denver

    Post-Doctoral Fellow / Research Faculty Position, Computational Biomechanics,
    Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics, University of Denver

    An opening is available for a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of
    Denver in the area of computational biomechanics. Current research
    interests include probabilistic, dynamic finite element modeling of
    the natural and implanted knee and hip. Qualified candidates may also be considered
    for Research Faculty appointment within the Department of Mechanical and
    Materials Engineering. The successful candidate will be expected to lead
    and conduct advanced research projects, and interface on these projects with
    industry, graduate students, and other faculty. Excellent post-doctoral
    salary available, including benefits. Starting date negotiable, early 2018 preferred.

    + PhD degree in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering.
    + Knowledge of finite element analysis and proficiency with commercial FEA
    codes. Must possess demonstrated skill with advanced applications of FEA.
    Experience with custom code development and/or custom scripting of
    commercial FEA packages preferred.
    + Proficiency with programming languages (C, C++, Python).
    + Proficiency with multi-body dynamics simulation, nonlinear constrained
    optimization techniques, and/or probabilistic FE methods, would be
    considered advantageous.
    + Excellent oral/written communication skills and interpersonal skills

    The Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics has recently moved into a new building,
    with world-class laboratory facilities, including a gait lab with biplane radiography,
    experimental biomechanics lab with 6DOF joint simulator and mechanical test frames,
    implant retrieval lab, and computational biomechanics lab.
    The University of Denver ( was founded in 1864 and is the oldest
    private university in the Rocky Mountain region. The Department of
    Mechanical and Materials Engineering offers graduate degrees in Mechanical
    Engineering and Bioengineering. In addition to educational opportunities,
    DU’s location in Denver offers a wide range of cultural and outdoor
    activities. The University of Denver is an AA/EOE (Affirmative Action,
    Equal Opportunity Employer).

    To apply, please send a copy of your CV, and cover letter outlining fit within the position and Center.
    Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
