    Post-Doctoral Fellow / Research Faculty Position, Experimental/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 experimental or computational biomechanics.
    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
    sponsors, graduate students, and other faculty. Excellent post-doctoral
    salary available, including benefits. Starting date negotiable, mid-2019 preferred.

    + PhD degree in mechanical engineering or biomedical engineering.
    + Experience with advanced cadaveric testing tools/techniques, including current 6DOF experimental joint simulators
    + Knowledge of finite element analysis and proficiency with commercial FEA codes
    + Proficiency with programming languages
    + Significant prior research-based publication
    + 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 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.
