PhD studentship in MRI based measures of osteoarthritis

Departments of Computing and Bioengineering

Imperial College is ranked the fifth best university in the world (Times Higher QS World University Rankings 2007).


Applications are invited for a fully-funded three-year PhD studentship (fees and stipend) at Imperial College London. The project will be jointly supervised by Professor Daniel Rueckert (http://www.doc.ic.ac.uk/~dr/) of the Department of Computing and Dr Anthony Bull of the Bioengineering Department. These departments have both received the highest research rating (5*) in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise.

The goal of the PhD is the development of automatic imaging based measures of osteoarthritis using magnetic resonance imaging.

Applications are invited from candidates who have (or who expect to gain) a good upper-second or first-class honours degree (or equivalent), preferably at MEng level (or equivalent), in Electrical Engineering, Computing, Bioengineering, Physics, or related disciplines.

The successful applicant will work in an interdisciplinary research group consisting of engineers, surgeons, physiotherapists and scientists who are investigating the causes, diagnoses and treatments of diseases of the joints.

Due to funding restrictions, to be eligible for support, applicants must be 'UK students' as defined by the EPSRC; this includes EU citizens who have been resident in the UK for a period of 3 years for any purpose, including undergraduate studies.
