Multiple positions in modeling & simulation of layered tissue structures @ Cleveland Clinic

Erdemir Laboratory at the Cleveland Clinic (http://www.lerner.ccf.org/bme/erdemir/lab/) has three positions for an upcoming project on the biomechanics of multi-layer tissue structures of musculoskeletal extremities with emphasis on computational modeling & simulation. The positions will initially be for a duration of one year with the possible extension to three years. The goals of the activity are to collect comprehensive biomechanical data through cadaver experimentation and human subjects testing in order to provide open and freely accessible databases of tissue mechanical and anatomical properties, and to develop and disseminate detailed and reduced models of multi-layer tissue structures of musculoskeletal extremities, all with proven utility in surgical simulations.

Please submit your CV along with a cover letter and contact information for three references to Ahmet Erdemir, erdemira@ccf.org. Review of candidates will start immediately. Desired qualifications for individual positions are based on anticipated duties and are provided below.
