The aim of this 1 year project is to examine the parameters that influence the tibial bone stresses after total knee joint replacement. The project aims to investigate the influence of alignment and ligament balance using explicit finite element analysis. This project is funded by Action Medical Research.

Applicants are expected to hold at least a BEng in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent discipline and a PhD in a relevant area is desirable. A working knowledge of finite element analysis is essential and in particular explicit finite element formulations. Additional knowledge of biomechanics, particularly related to total knee joint replacement, would be advantageous.
