Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

Comments Off on Immediate Internship Position at Beaumont Hospital

This was forwarded to me by our alum Michael Newton on behalf of Erin Baker. Please contact directly.


I lead the orthopaedic implant retrieval program at Beaumont Hospital’s Royal Oak, MI campus. Our program is expanding from a 3-hospital to 8-hospital collection this year. I am hoping to hire a Biomedical Engineering student (or similar degree) beginning in June 2016. The position would last through April/May 2017, and the student would be hired as 36-hour/week intern. However, the position may not require 36 hours/week every week.

I am looking for someone who is hands-on and motivated. Ideal candidate has an interest in biomaterials, enjoys microscopy, learning new equipment/techniques, a research lab environment in a hospital setting, writing and other forms of communication (e.g. presentations, abstracts), and working in a small team (our lab/department is staffed by 8 engineers and 2 research coordinators). Biology and/or musculoskeletal anatomy knowledge preferred.

This is a great position for students interested in applying to medical and graduate school, or interested in research careers post-graduation.

Please have any interested student email me directly (erin.baker@beaumont.org<mailto:erin.baker@beaumont.org>), with their resume, cover letter, and a technical writing sample. Interviews will be scheduled immediately.

Thanks,
Erin

New Student Employment Position: Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory

Comments Off on New Student Employment Position: Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory

Job Type: Undergraduate Assistant – Summer (20+ hrs/wk) EBLlogo

Lab Information: Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory – The goal of our laboratory is to advance experimental biomechanics understanding by providing practical training to engineering and medical students and advancing the boundary of knowledge through applied basic science research. To achieve these goals we combine in vivo testing of human and animal subjects with cadaver and surrogate in vitro models to understand injury mechanisms and predict failure risk. Finally, our lab collaborates with clinicians to develop preventative and regenerative treatments for soft tissue damage and degeneration.

Educational Level: At least 60 credits towards a Bachelors Degree in Biomedical, Mechanical, or Robotics Engineering, or related discipline at LTU. Experience with workshop fabrication and biomechanics is preferred.

Job Responsibilities: Work with the Director, LTU technical staff, other graduate and undergraduate assistants as well as external physicians and industry representatives to further our academic research and applied projects in a dynamic and expanding environment. The applicant will be self-motivated and able to accept the challenge of this environment and represent themselves and the EBL to their utmost capabilities.

Assist in specimen preparation and mechanical testing data collection in the laboratory for multiple concurrent studies and provide proper documentation and organization of the collected data.

Build, test and maintain laboratory equipment to ensure reliability and validity of the data collection processes.

Assist in professional communication, such as abstract and report preparation.

Application Process: Please submit a resume with your educational experience, related work experience, fabrication and/or computer skills, and professional goals to emeyer@ltu.edu. Following our internal selection process, qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview.
