  • PhD Position - Boise State University - Experimental and Computational Biomechanics

    Ph.D. Research Assistantship
    Boise State University
    Biomedical Engineering Ph.D.

    The Northwest Tissue Mechanics lab is seeking a Ph.D. student to conduct biomechanics research related to soft tissue healing (NIH funded grant). The PhD student will use experimental, theoretical and computational approaches to: (1) determine the effect of complex deformations on soft tissue repair, and (2) develop and validate a computational model that predicts healing in soft tissue. This project will provide a student with training in biomechanics, mechanobiology, mechatronics, finite element modeling, and tissue engineering. Knowledge gained from this project can assist the design of therapeutic strategies that accelerate and strengthen healing in soft connective tissues (e.g. ligament, tendon, meniscus).

    This is a fully funded PhD research assistantship in the Biomedical Engineering (BME) PhD Program, with a research emphasis in experimental and computational biomechanics. This position includes a stipend, full tuition waiver and health insurance.
