Post-Doc Research Associate Position Available in Computation Mechanics and Biomechanical Modelling for Breast Cancer Surgery


As a result of a recent grant award from the European Union, CMIC is seeking to recruit a high caliber post-doctoral research associate (grade 7) to join the Breast Cancer Imaging Group,, and develop objective tools, tailored to individual subjects, to predict the aesthetic outcome of breast conserving surgery. Using a combination of 3D photography and routinely acquired radiological images (i.e. X-Ray, Ultrasound and MRI), together with information about tumour size, location and shape etc., we will develop techniques to biomechanically model the anatomy of the breast and the effect of surgical removal of cancerous tissue. This 3 year project will fund a post-doctoral research associate with an interest in biomechanical modeling and developing new medical image analysis methods to improve breast cancer treatment. The candidate should have a strong background in computational mechanics and mechanical modelling. This project is a collaboration with a number of European (DE, PT, FR) centers of excellence in breast cancer imaging and analysis.

CMIC is a world class Centre combining excellence in medical imaging sciences with innovative computational methodology. We are a group of over 75 academics, researchers and PhD students. Our research finds application in biomedical research and in healthcare. The research of the group focuses on detailed structural and functional analysis in neurosciences, imaging to guide interventions, image analysis in drug discovery, imaging in cardiology and imaging in oncology. The Centre, which is a joint initiative between the Departments of Medical Physics and Computer Science at UCL, has very close links with the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, the Faculty of Life Sciences and associated Clinical Institutes, in particular the Institute of Neurology and the Institute of Child Health.

UCL is centrally located adjacent to London's West End and the excellent transport links of Euston, St. Pancras International and Kings Cross Railway Stations.

For further information and an application form please contact Dr John Hipwell (, telephone: +44 (0)20 7679 2064). The closing date for applications is Thursday 7th February.
