________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Communication:
The RPM must communicate clearly and effectively in both written and interpersonal forms. Considerable interpersonal communication
skill and judgement must be exercised in developing and implementing strategic plans with the faculty, staff and collaborators of
the program of research. Clear, concise, and convincing writing is required in the preparation of research and knowledge
translation documents and, in particular, in the preparation of manuscripts for publication, grant proposals and related budget
documentation.


Deadlines:
Multiple projects in program of research have strict deadlines with funding agencies, government bodies, and publishers. It is
essential that the RPM be able to work effectively under pressure to meet deadlines. The RPM must also be able to help the team of
faculty, programmers, and staff to work effectively under pressure to meet deadlines.


Travel:
Regular travel will be required to maintain liaison with pan-Canadian collaborators, government bodies, and funding agencies. As
necessary, conferences, workshops, and stakeholder consultations will be hosted and or attended across Canada and internationally.


Confidentiality:
Employees of the Centre for Health Services and Policy Research always work under strict confidentiality because of the nature of
the Centre's data holdings. The Centre's core data-related activities ¿ database maintenance, access, research, and support ¿ are
all critically dependent on the health information systems that have been developed and are maintained by it. Any breach in data
security would place the future of the Centre, and its many programs of research, at risk.


Accuracy and Accountability:
Accuracy is essential since errors may have implications for published reports, grant-funded research commitments, contracts with
collaborators and government bodies, and internal human resources planning. The RPM is responsible for checking the reliability
and accuracy of work done by Project Managers and Research Coordinators, and reporting challenges and threats directly to Team
Leader and centre management. The RPM is required to interact with faculty, researchers, systems analysts, and support staff at
CHSPR, as well as officials from the provincial and federal governments and research collaborators from Canada and abroad. The RPM
will report semi-annually to a national Leadership Committee and a Senior Advisory Committee comprising senior academic members
from different regions of the country and policy elites from federal and provincial government.

Job Summary


The overall purpose of the Research Engineer will be to facilitate the research being conducted at the Orthopaedic Engineering
Research Laboratory. Research falls under four sub-themes: superior characterization of bone properties, optimizing bone health
through targeted interventions, enhancing surgical treatment of hip fractures, and understanding the effect of bone weakening on
joint health. We have identified medical imaging as a pivotal expertise linking our sub-themes of research.


Organizational Status


The Research Engineer will report to Dr. David Wilson of Orthopaedic Engineering Research. At present, no personnel will report
to the Research Engineer although future personnel additions could change this situation. When the Dr. Wilson is absent from the
Laboratory, any personnel will report to the Research Engineer.


Work Performed


The imaging research scientist will develop, adapt and apply state-of-the-art techniques to acquire, quantify and interpret bone
and joint images.


Will work with radiologists, physicists and technologists in the Centre for Hip Health and at the UBC MRI Research Centre to
design imaging protocols and ensure that we utilize safe and efficient imaging techniques that provide relevant and useful
information.
Design and manufacture experimental apparatus. The design process is an iterative and collaborative effort with the Director and
other researchers involved in the specific project. Apparatus manufacturing is typically completed using the in-house machine
shop. Knowledge of mechanics, design and machining is an asset.


Design, develop and maintain software for image analysis, manipulation, segmentation, registration and storage. The scientist will
train and monitor students in scanning and image acquisition, analysis and interpretation techniques. Image modalities of current
interest to the group include CT, MRI at 1.5 and 3.0 T, micro-CT, pQCT and DXA.


Conduct analyses of experimental data. Analyses of experimental data may require some computer programming but most often
packaged software is sufficient. Most analyses will be conducted in collaboration with other participating researchers. Previous

experience with Matlab programming, Excel programming, Labview and statistics is an asset.


Participate in experimental design process. Active participation in project meetings is required. During these meetings,
experimental protocols are discussed and developed. Previous experimental experience is an asset.


Write scientific papers and industrial reports. Strong technical communication skills are required to write coherent reports.


Maintain the laboratory testing rooms in an organized manner. Develop an organizational plan for the testing rooms in
consultation with the Director and enforce the plan with all lab personnel. Ensure that the laboratory has sufficient supplies for
the experiments which are being conducted.


Supervision Received


The Research Engineer will be supervised by the Dr. Wilson. Regularly scheduled meetings will provide the basis for the
monitoring of the lab work. In most cases, more frequent interaction will result due to specific project requirements and normal
daily meetings. It is important that the Research Engineer be capable of working independently, particularly when the Dr. Wilson
is absent from the Laboratory.


Supervision Given


The Research Engineer will act in a supervisory capacity to the various personnel who conduct research in the imaging lab. For
the most part, the official academic supervisor of engineering graduate students and medical residents will be the Engineering or
Orthopaedic faculty. However, the Research Engineer will often be the unofficial supervisor of the research work due to a
continuous presence and experience in the imaging lab.
The extent of the supervisory responsibility would be to assist the official supervisor in guiding the student through the
research study. This could take the form of assistance with protocol development, apparatus issues, testing assistance, data
analysis questions, or writing guidance.


Consequence of Error/Judgement


The work of the Research Engineer will be evaluated periodically by the Dr. Wilson. If errors are detected, the engineer will be
notified and requested to correct the problem. The impact of errors would be to cause delays in certain research projects. For
the most part, errors made in research labs are reversible. The repetition of incorrect work can, however, create significant
cost of time and money.


Qualifications


Undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline or Undergraduate degree in Engineering. Master's degree in Engineering
(preferable). 3 years relevant experience or the equivalent combination of education and experience. - experience with image
segmentation, registration, and programming
- familiar with CT and MR Imaging
- history of experimental apparatus design and fabrication
- documented history of involvement in the research process, from idea to publication
- experience using a wide variety of laboratory equipment, particularly servohydraulic testing machines and optoelectronic camera
systems
- some background in computer programming.
