We have three new exciting job opportunities.

Research Fellow/Assistant in in Tooth and Peridontal Tissue/ Biomechanics/ Biomedical Engneering Job reference: 312418

Research Fellow/Assistant in Biomechanics/Biomedical Engineering: Development of Simulation Systems Job reference: 312419

Research Fellow/Assistant in Biomechanics/Biomedical Engineering: Physiological Simulation Systems of the Spine Job reference: 312420

We have a further three job opportunities within the Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE), available as part of the Centre of Excellence in Medical Engineering funded by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC newly formed here at Leeds.

The Centre of Excellence in Medical Engineering funded by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC 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 (see individual job specs) and will have experience of project management. These roles require 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 December 2009 or as soon as possible thereafter.

All 3 posts are advertised at University Grade 7 (29,704 - 35,469 p.a).

The closing date for all 3 posts is: 8th December 2009
