Queen Mary has a strong international reputation in the areas of physics,
engineering and materials science, and these units of assessment all
obtained Grade 5 in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise. The College is
keen to promote interdisciplinary work in these areas and to expand its
research activities by making professorial appointments that will strengthen
or complement engineering activities across these Departments.

Candidates will be considered with experimental and/or computational
expertise and research interests that complement the existing activity in
the Medical Engineering Division. These employ engineering strategies to
predict the behaviour and performance of biological structures and their
replacements at a range of hierarchical levels, from cells to the whole
organism. Particular interests involve understanding the mechanisms
associated with health and disease of load-bearing structures, such as
articular cartilage and tendons, and the vascular system.

Examples of fields that could be considered are:
Tissue Damage and Remodelling
Cellular Mechanics
Tissue Engineering
Mass Transport in Soft Tissues
Cardiac and Respiratory Mechanics
Joint Lubrication and Wear
Medical Imaging of Soft Tissues
Musculoskeletal Function in Sports and Exercise

Further details about the post may be obtained by contacting Professor D L
Bader, Director, Medical Engineering Programme, telephone 020 7882 5274.
Application forms are available on the College website and should be
supported by a curriculum vitae, including a publication list and a
statement of research interests.

The closing date for applications is 6 February 2004.
