  • Research Engineer in Orthopaedic Biomechanics

    The Mechanobiology Laboratory in the Bone and Joint Center at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit Michigan has openings for a research engineer.

    We are looking for a motivated person interested in characterizing bone quality and adaptation as a function of musculoskeletal diseases. The primary goal of the lab is in understanding the cellular mechanism that regulate the mechanical properties and biochemical composition of bone in order develop therapeutic means for improving bone quality among different musculoskeletal diseases. The successful candidate will be involved with projects focused on, but not limited to, cell mechanotransduction pathways, exercise physiology, and cell function during aging among other pathologies such as chronic kidney disease. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and carrying out protocols characterizing the biomechanics of biological tissues.

    Candidates must have at minimum a BS or BE in Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field of study. Strong work ethic, good organizational and communication skills are essential. Background experience with material testing, biomedical imaging (AFM, SEM, FTIR, Raman, EDX, microCT, ect.), alongside basic biological lab techniques (tissue culture, tissue dissection, tissue embedding, immunohistochemistry, histology, ect.) are desired, but not required.

    The Bone and Joint Center is a well-equipped, multidisciplinary research facility with faculty expertise in a range of Orthopaedic disciplines including cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, biomechanics and motion analysis. The Center is located within a new laboratory space in Wayne State University’s new $93 million, state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research building.
