Post-Doctoral Position at the Orthopaedic Bioengineering Lab, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School

The Orthopaedic Bioengineering Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School is looking to recruit an additional Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our current research team. Responsibilities will include quantitative investigation of the in vivo hip and knee biomechanics of patients with total joint replacements. The candidate will process CT and MRI images of patients to construct novel 3D anatomic models of the hip and knee and examine the optimal surgical implantation of joint replacements. This role offers the opportunity to be involved in multiple novel projects enabling the development of a wide range of research experience including machine learning as predictive tool in clinical outcome research. Under the supervision of Professor Young-Min Kwon, the candidate will work with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, surgeons, and patients and will develop a strong network with Harvard faculty. The candidate will have the opportunity to present our work nationally and internationally.

Qualified candidates should have a PhD in biomedical, bioengineering, mechanical, or a related engineering discipline and should have graduate research experience with musculoskeletal joint biomechanics. The candidate should have experience in conducting human joint kinematics and kinetics evaluation using imaging and motion analysis techniques. Strong written and oral communication skills are necessary. Proficiency in MATLAB programming is required. Prior experience with machine learning is highly desirable.

Interested applicants should submit a CV/resume and contact information for three references (full name, email, and phone). Please submit your application as an email attachment to:
