Highly competitive candidates are sought for locally-funded
fellowships in reproductive biomechanics at Cambridge University.
The Next Generation Fellowships are being offered through the new
Centre for Trophoblast Research, an interdisciplinary research centre
focused on the cells critical in the development and function of the

The focus of the project is in the area of fluid-structure
interactions in the growing placenta, including cell mechanics and
oxygen diffusion. Interested candidates should have an interest in
biomechanics and bioengineering, a strong background in computational
modeling for fluid-structure interactions, including familiarity with
Abaqus, Comsol and preferably experience with Linux and open-source
applications such as Salome. Candidates much also possess a strong
motivation to lead a new cross-disciplinary research project with buy-
in from clinicians, physiology experts and engineers.
