Job Description



  • Lead impactful research projects exploring the intricacies of lung and pelvic floor biomechanics.
  • Collaborate with a vibrant team of scientists and engineers.
  • Disseminate findings through publications, conferences, and collaborations.
  • Champion new ideas and methodologies in mechanobiology.

Research at the Bone Bioengineering Lab: Bone Bioengineering holds a critical position in basic science and clinical applications across various medical fields, including osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, and intervertebral disc degeneration. Our lab has been at the forefront of developing three-dimensional imaging analysis and modeling techniques for trabecular bone microstructure. This has far-reaching applications in the basic science research of bone mechanics as well as clinical applications in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. We are also delving into the bone microstructural phenotypes across different races and the implications this has for genetic and precision medicine, anthropology, evolution, and the mechanobiology of the skeleton. In parallel, we are exploring how mechanobiology is linked to bone microstructure and mechanics.

Preferred and Required Qualifications

Dynamic researchers who are curious, driven, and ready to traverse the interdisciplinary realms of mechanobiology. If you're eager to contribute to pioneering research and explore the biomechanics of vital organs, this is your opportunity.
