  • Postdoc position in Musculoskeletal Imaging and Biomechanics @ University of Pennsylvania, USA

    Mckay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA is seeking a motivated and team-oriented postdoctoral fellow with experience in musculoskeletal (MSK) imaging systems, biomedical image analysis, and computer programing to fulfill a full-time position immediately. The candidate’s primary duty is to manage the MicroCT Imaging Core (µCTIC) at Penn Center for Musculoskeletal Disorder (PCMD) and develop new µCT imaging-based techniques that support emerging needs and catalyze innovative MSK research.

    The PCMD µCTIC serves as a critical resource for MSK researchers at Penn and institutions in Philadelphia and neighboring states by providing access to seven state-of-the-art µCT instruments that cover a wide range of image resolutions (down to sub-micron resolution), sample sizes (up to 80 mm in diameter), and scan modes (ex vivo, in vivo animal, and clinical imaging). An important mission of µCTIC is to accelerate new imaging and image analysis technique development to advance MSK research. Particularly, we aim to promote multidisciplinary research applications by integrating biomechanics and histology approaches into µCT imaging applications. More information on the PCMD µCTIC can be found at:

    The candidate is expected to work with the Core Director Dr. X. Sherry Liu to manage and maintain hardware and software of µCT instruments, develop new protocols for both in vivo and ex vivo µCT imaging of multiple MSK tissues, develop software for advanced image analysis, and provide guidance and training to the core users.

    Quantifications: A PhD degree in biomedical engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, biomechanics or related field; excellent organization and strong communication skills in written and verbal English; strong programming skills in Python, C, or Matlab; background in CT acquisition and related image processing. Additional experience with finite element analysis is also a plus. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in Scanco µCT systems.

    Applicants should email a complete CV and three names of references to Dr. X. Sherry Liu (
