The Bone and Joint Center at Henry Ford Health System (Detroit, MI) has multiple scientist positions available in orthopaedic research. Successful applicants will join a multidisciplinary team of investigators with complementary research programs examining various aspects of the musculoskeletal system, and will be expected to develop externally funded research programs and establish interdisciplinary research partnerships.
The Bone and Joint Center has expertise and well-equipped facilities for research in motion analysis, biomechanics, musculoskeletal modeling, computational mechanics, 3D imaging, animal models, cell biology, histology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Scientists in the Bone and Joint Center have a strong history of collaboration with the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, Radiology, Biostatistics & Research Epidemiology, Endocrinology, and Rheumatology at Henry Ford Health System.
