PhD researcher in Multiscale modelling and experimental characterisation of biofilm mechanics

Multiscale modelling and experimental characterisation of biofilm mechanics

Awards available: 1 award available.
Funding Details: £20,000 annually (Fees and maintenance)
Length of Award: up to 4 years
Eligibility: You need to have a good degree (merit or distinction) in relevant Science or Engineering. You also need to be highly motivated with strong interest in biomechanics and modelling. Good communication skills are required. Prior experience of finite element modelling, mathematical modelling, or characterisation of biological materials would be an advantage. If English is not your first language, you would need to meet the minimum requirement of University.

The aim of the project is to use a combined mulitscale modelling and experimental characterisation approach to predict the biofilm deformation and detachment at controlled environment. These would potential benefit a range of industries such as such as biomedical implant industries, maritime, water systems, dentistry and waste water treatment.
The student will work within an multi-disciplinary research team (including mechanical modeller, microbiologist, and mathematician) and collaborate with industrial partners.

Application Details:
This project is available to start on 14 Sept. 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Please contact Dr Jinju Chen by email (jinju.chen@ncl.ac.uk) with informal enquires about this project.
Please send your CV (preferrably in pdf format) with details of your qualification and achievement (e.g. publication list, awards obtained etc) to Dr.Jinju Chen.
