Job Title
Research Associate in Modelling the Variability in Shape of the Lower Limb Skeletal and Muscular Anatomy
Departments of Bioengineering, Computing and Imaging Science
Salary 30,360 - 38,730 per annum
Centre for Medical Engineering Solutions in the Management of Osteoarthritis
Fixed term appointment for 3 years
Imperial College has been awarded almost 11 million over a 5 year period by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC for a Centre for Medical Engineering Solutions in the Management of Osteoarthritis. There are a number of departments, divisions and institutes across Imperial College participating in this Centre, which will bring together a critical mass of engineers, clinicians and basic scientists, collaborating to use technology to improve the diagnosis, understanding, surgical management and rehabilitative treatment of osteoarthritis.
As part of this exciting new initiative applications are invited for a Research Associate to work on a 3 year project that forms a key part of the musculoskeletal modelling theme of the Centre's activities. This project will develop datasets of skeletal and muscular shape and develop techniques to create patient-specific representation of skeletal and muscular geometry. The project will be supervised by Dr Anthony Bull (Department of Bioengineering), Professor Daniel Rueckert (Department of Computing) and Professor Jo Hajnal (Department of Imaging Science).
Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent qualification in engineering or physical sciences and an in-depth understanding of the musculoskeletal anatomy of the lower limb.
For an informal discussion please contact Dr Anthony Bull email: a.bull@imperial.ac.uk or telephone 020 7594 5186.
Committed to equality and valuing diversity. We are also an Athena Silver SWAN Award winner and a Stonewall Diversity Champion.
