Post Doctoral Research Position in Experimental Biomechanics at the University of Southampton, UK

The Bioengineering Science Research Group at the University of Southampton invites applications for an 18 month post-doctoral position investigating the mechanical performance of unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA). 

The candidate will be expected to conduct physical experiments on UKA implanted cadaver knees while developing novel test methodologies based on micro focussed computed tomography imaging for the assessment of stress and strain generation. These will be verified against computational predictions generated by an existing post-doctoral researcher within the investigating team. As part of their responsibilities, the successful candidate will lead the development of a tissue testing facility within the group alongside the project principal investigator. The candidate is not required to have expereince in testing of bone, as full training will be provided. 

The candidate will have to interact effectively with a wide-range of personnel including clinicians (one of whom is a co-investigator on the grant), engineers, orthopaedic company personnel, imaging specialists (specifically computed tomography staff based at the Faculty’s CTfacility) and graduate students.

The University of Southampton is a leading institution conducting high impact research across a range of fields, with a particular focus on engineering, science and medicine. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary research team within the Bioengineering Science Research, who have strong links to several groups within the University, including the university hospitals trust, the institute for life sciences, the rehabilitation and health technologies group and the statistical research institute. This environment fosters strong inter faculty collaboration and opportunities for career progression.
