Positions Available!

We have several openings for graduate research assistants. Training in solid and fluid mechanics and mathematical/computational modeling as well as hand-on experimental experience are required. Experience in fluorescence / laser scanning microscopy are highly desired. Computer skills (Matlab, FEM packages) are a plus. Students who are detail-oriented and enthusiastic in biomechanics research are encouraged to apply.
