These posts are available within the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE), University of Leeds as part of the Wellcome-EPSRC Leeds Medical Engineering Centre (WELMEC) which is a centre of excellence in Medical Engineering. Funded by the Wellcome Trust and the EPSRC, the Centre aims to improve the quality of life and economic productivity of the ageing population through novel diagnosis and interventions for cardiovascular and musculoskeletal disease including new biosensors and methods of imaging, longer lasting joint replacements, novel regenerative scaffolds for cardiovascular and musculoskeletal applications, and targeted delivery of autologous stem cells. The Centre will translate internationally leading multidisciplinary research into innovative products and services to directly address clinical needs enabling us all to enjoy an active life for longer and ultimately achieve '50 more years from 50'.

WELMEC, which supports fifty academic and fifty research staff across seven departments in the University and the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust, is hosted through the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE), one of the top bioengineering research institutes in the world. In addition to this, WELMEC is aligned to a wider programme of medical and biological engineering research which will involve over 200 research staff and students supported by over 100m of research funding over the next five years.

You will work as part of a multidisciplinary team of engineers, biologists, physicists, clinicians and medical physicists to undertake research. You will have a PhD (or expect to be awarded one shortly) in a relevant discipline and will have experience of project management. The role requires that you have the ability to work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team and excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential. These fixed term posts are available from 1 October 2009 or as soon as possible thereafter.
