Scholarship Description:

Marquette University and the Medical College of Wisconsin Joint Biomechanics Laboratory is planning to recruit PhD students in the fall of 2023. Students who have earned or will soon earn a master’s degree in engineering mechanics, computational mechanics, or mechanical engineering (or direct undergraduate PhD) are welcome to apply for the PhD. Outstanding PhD applicants will receive full scholarship support.

In addition, the lab is looking for postdocs in mechanics, biomedical engineering, and physiology related fields, and welcomes applications from PhDs with experience in mechanical modeling, numerical computational methods, or cardiovascular experiments in animals.

The Biomechanics Lab is involved in the development of multi-field coupled numerical models and animal experiments in the areas of cardiovascular disease research, traumatic brain injury, interventional medical device development, and Langendorff animal experiments. Dr. Fan is currently involved in collaborative research with the California Medical Innovations Institute, Michigan State University, University of California at San Diego, University of California at San Francisco, Imperial College, Cardiovascular Research Foundation, etc. Dr. Fan is also involved in a number of national projects with the American Heart Association, National Institute of Health, etc. He has been involved in a number of national projects including the American Heart Association and the National Institute of Health. His research has been published in the American Journal of Physiology and other SCI journals on physiology and biomechanics.

The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is a private medical school and research institute based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The school was founded in 1893 and is the largest research centre in eastern Wisconsin. Formerly affiliated with Marquette University, it has been an independent institution since 1967 and has two other campuses, one in Green Bay and one in Wausau. MCW has been awarded the Higher Learning Commission’s North Central Association of Colleges (HLC) as well as the Liaison Council on Medical Education (LCME). It is the only private medical school in Wisconsin and one of only two medical schools in Wisconsin The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison. The Medical College of Wisconsin has more than 1,200 students enrolled in educational programs. This includes approximately 817 medical students and 400 graduate students. Another 670 physicians in residence and 180 in fellowship training work with the university’s affiliated hospitals. Around 160 scientists conduct post-doctoral research with the MCW.
