Research Associate

Salary in the range £30,520 – £33,080 per annum

Fixed term for 3 years

Imperial College has been awarded almost £11million over 5 years by the Wellcome Trust and EPSRC for a Medical Engineering Solutions in Osteoarthritis Centre of Excellence. There are a number of departments, divisions and institutes across Imperial 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 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 computational technology to instantiate a subject‐specific FE model of the knee from ultrasound imaging data using statistical shape modelling techniques to quantify tissue stresses of the menisci and major ligaments and apply these to a set of patients.

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent in engineering or physical sciences and an understanding of the musculoskeletal anatomy of the lower limb.
