PhD position in computational biomechanics at University of Glasgow

I am looking for motivated students to join my research group and work towards their PhD in the area of computational biomechanics.

About us: The research aim of our group is to generate new scientific knowledge and methods using innovative ideas in numerical methods and biomechanics that contribute towards improved cardiovascular healthcare.

Journal Club for October 2016: Roughness evolution of biomaterial surfaces

As an example, here we discuss implant-associated infection from the mechanics point of view on bacteria adhesion affected by the biomaterial surface roughness:

1.    Implant-associated infection, a leading cause of failure in many biomedical devices, is caused by adhesion of bacteria to the surface of biomaterials. Implant-associated infection is difficult to treat, for example, joint replacement infections may occur deep around the artificial implants.
