Postdoc Position Characterising Knee Biomechanics to Evaluate Repair/reconstruction of Soft-tissue Injuries

Imperial College London, UK is offering postdoctoral researcher position in mechanical engineering. This fellowship is last for 12 months and posible to extend. The deadline to apply is September 26, 2019.

The Biomechanics group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the study of human joints, with particular focus on improving orthopaedic surgical procedures. Funded by Smith & Nephew, in close collaboration with Mr Andy Williams (Fortius Clinic, London). This position will contribute to a project that is studying the function of the knee, and surgical procedures used to repair injuries.

We are currently looking to hire a researcher with an engineering background to assist in the characterisation of knee injuries, with a view to develop improved methods to repair/reconstruct soft tissue injuries in the knee. The post holder will be working closely with the Fortius Clinic and along with researchers in the Biomechanics group who are investigating improved surgical techniques. Together, you will work towards the goal of improving the repair and reconstruction options for individuals with knee damage.

This is a fixed term position for up to 12 months, ideally starting in November 2019.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 34,397 – 37,486 per annum.
