Post doctoral position in the area of soft tissue Biomechanics at the Advanced Computational Research Lab, RPI, Troy, USA

Brief description: The Advanced Computational Research Laboratory (http://acor.rpi.edu),
affiliated with the  Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Nuclear
Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA invites
applications for a postdoctoral research position to work in the area of in vivo / in situ soft tissue mechanical property estimation and modeling.

The overall goal of this research, funded by the National Institute of
Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the NIH is to develop real time
computer simulation technology that will vastly improve how surgeons are
trained to perform surgery. This technology will be based on advanced
computational algorithms and physical modeling.

We are looking for exceptionally talented individuals with the following
background:

  1. Degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or related
    field necessary.
  2. Experience in performing biomechanical experiments on soft tissues 
  3. Knowledge in soft tissue biomechanics and constitutive modeling 
  4. Knowledge of finite element methods and inverse problems is a major plus.

Interested candidates may apply to Professor Suvranu De (des@rpi.edu)
with a cover letter, detailed CV, a copy of the publication deemed as
best representative of the candidate’s creative research, and names and
email addresses of three referees. Applications from minority and women
are especially encouraged. RPI is an Equal opportunity/ Affirmative
Action employer.
