[Histonet] Postdoctoral Position in Cartilage Research


We have been studying articular cartilage using 
multidisciplinary imaging techniques, including 
non-invasive microscopic magnetic resonance 
imaging (ÁMRI), polarized light microscopy (PLM), 
transmission electron microscopy (TEM), 
Fourier-transform infrared imaging (FTIRI), 
tissue histology, biochemical treatment, and 
mechanical characterization. The results from our 
fundamental research at microscopic resolution 
are used to guide the successful applications of 
non-invasive procedures in clinical management of 
osteoarthritis and related joint diseases.

The successful candidate for this postdoctoral 
position should have a PhD or equivalent in 
biomedical sciences, tissue histology, 
bioengineering, or a related field. A solid 
background and previous knowledge in cartilage or 
other connective tissue is required. Working 
experience and skills with modern instrument and 
computer will be an asset. This is an excellent 
opportunity for a highly motivated individual 
with solid biological/medical background who 
wants to participate in the multidisciplinary 
research activities.

Oakland University is located in suburban 
Rochester, Michigan, in north Oakland County, 
which boasts one of the most picturesque campuses 
in the country.  Our state-of-art instrumentation 
includes a ÁMRI system (Bruker AMX300 with a 7T 
wide-bore superconducting magnet and microimaging 
accessories), a mechanical testing system 
(EnduraTec ELF 3200), a digital polarized light 
microscope (Leica DM RXP interfaced with a 12-bit 
CCD camera), a soon-to-be-installed FTIRI system, 
and a number of histology equipments.  In 
addition, research times on a Bruker 7T/20cm MRI 
system and a GE 3T whole-body MRI system are 
available at a nearby institution. Our web site 
contains more information regarding our lab and 
some of the recently completed cartilage 

Interested individuals should send their CV, 
statements of research experience and research 
interest, and the names, telephone numbers, and 
e-mail addresses of at least three references to:
