The Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Iowa seeks to grow its basic research enterprise by adding a tenure track faculty member at the rank of Assistant Professor to our Musculoskeletal Research Program. The Department’s research laboratories include the Orthopedic Biomechanics Laboratory, the Ignacio V. Ponseti Biochemistry and Cell Biology Laboratory. These laboratories collaborate closely alongside and with the clinical department on translational research projects and grants.
This opportunity is particularly well suited for scientists with interest in the biology of bone and other tissues related to musculoskeletal health that can supplement our existing cartilage-centric projects. The department maintains an advanced facility for large animal surgery that will allow a scientist an exceptional opportunity for their research program. More recently, investments in onsite histology capabilities, alongside a suite of well characterized animal models, provides state-of-the-art in-house translational capabilities. Translational research and close interaction with research-oriented clinicians are important central features of our research program.
