We are always looking for motivated students interested in biomechanics research, especially MS and PhD students. Please send us a CV and a description of your interest and experience in orthopaedic research.

Open Positions:

PhD Assistantships

The Computational Biomechanics Laboratory and the Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics at the University of Denver is seeking several highly motivated individuals to pursue doctoral degrees in mechanical or biomedical engineering. The research focus is in the development, verification, and application of multi-scale finite element models of the human spine and lower extremities to asses natural and implanted joint mechanics. The fully-funded assistantships cover tuition, health insurance, and a competitive stipend. Review of applicants will continue until the positions are filled, with potential start dates as early as June 1, 2013.

Post-doctoral Researcher

The Center for Orthopaedic Biomechanics in the Department of Mechanical & Materials Engineering at the University of Denver is seeking a highly motivated individual to perform post-doctoral research in human joint mechanics utilizing biplane dynamic x-ray and computational modeling. The two-year position offers a competitive salary, health insurance, and benefits. Review of applicants will continue until the positions are filled, with potential start dates as early as February 1, 2013.
