PhD & postdocs position in the biomechanics lab @Marquette University

The Biomechanics Lab in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at Marquette University and Medical College of Wisconsin is recruiting PhD students and Postdoctoral Research Associates starting in Spring 2023 to work in biomechanics and biomedical engineering research.

The successful candidate for the postdoc positions will be expected to publish peer-reviewed journal papers and help mentor students and write proposals. The successful candidate will enjoy ample training and networking opportunities.

——
The successful candidates for the Positions in Computational Modeling in Biomechanics Lab will work on and contribute to ongoing research that solves problems related to the cardiovascular and brain by developing multiscale/multiphysics computational models.

Candidates possessing the following qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply:
* Strong background in biomechanics, biomedical engineering, computational mechanics, or equivalent fields.
* Strong foundation in numerical methods, especially the finite element method. Proficient in python and C++ programming language. Special consideration will be given to candidates who are familiar with the open-source finite element library FeNiCS, cardiac or brain finite element modeling, medical image processing, and machine learning techniques.
* Special consideration will also be given to candidates possessing knowledge and experience in performing bio-related experiments.
* Excellent communication and written skills.

The successful candidates for the Positions in Experimental Biomechanics will work on and contribute to ongoing research that solves problems related to the cardiovascular and brain by performing in vivo and ex-vivo small animal experiments.

Candidates possessing the following qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply:
* Strong background in biomechanics, biomedical engineering, physiology, or equivalent fields.
* Training and experience in designing, performing, and acquiring data in-vivo and ex-vivo small animal experiments e.g., biaxial tissue testing, biomedical imaging, and/or Langendorff experiments.
* Special consideration will also be given to candidates possessing knowledge and foundation in computational modeling.
* Excellent communication and written skills.
