PostDoctoral Research Associate Position in Dental Material Mechanical and Chemical Testing and Analysis


The University of
Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) School of Dentistry Department of Oral and
Craniofacial Sciences is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in
mechanical and chemical analytical testing of mineralized tooth
structure.  The candidate must be proficient with technologies such as
AFM-nanoindentation, scanning acoustic microscopy, micro-Raman spectroscopy,
and FTIR spectroscopy and possibly assist in numerical analyses from these
data.  This position will be directly involved with research associated
with understanding the mechanism of radiotherapy-induced dentition breakdown.
The candidate will be working on a NIH funded grant.

PhD in a related area or mechanical engineering with a
biomechanics background will be essential. 

The position is available immediately. Please contact Dr. Ganesh
Thiagarajan (ganesht@umkc.edu)/ Dr. Mary Walker (walkermp@umkc.edu) or call at (816)-235-1288. You will have to
later apply online from a link to be provided. 

Comments

Any related experimental experience in careful sample preparation, mechanical testing and chemical analysis will be considered and applicants with interest and be in a position to be readily trained are encouraged to apply.
