Applications are invited for a PhD research Studentship within the School of Mechanical Engineering at University of Aveiro, Portugal. The studentship is for a period of one year renewed until three years, subject to satisfactory progress and 980,00€ per month (tax free), by bank transfer or Cheque

Project title: TMJ implant - Study and development a new TMJ implant

This project will involve design and develop simulation device of the actions undertaken in the temporomandibular joint during chewing at different activities. Develop and validate numerical model capable of reproducing the state of deformation in temporomandibular joint. The work includes experimental mechanics. The work group includes the collaborators Prof. Carlos Relvas, Prof. Michel Mesnard, France.

Applicants should normally hold an MSc, or have a good first degree, in a Biomechanics or Mechanical Engineering or related subject. Applicants should have knowledge of computing or other related discipline. An MSc in one of these areas is also highly desirable. In addition, applicants should have excellent oral and written communication English skills, as well as competence in research methods

The successful applicant will join the Biomechanics Research Group at University of Aveiro (www.ua.pt), which has an established track record in biomechanical research. The studentship will be supervised by Prof. António Ramos and Prof. Michel Mesnard. A commencement date of April 2011 is desirable. For further information, general enquiries about this PhD studentship, and how to apply, please contact: a.ramos@ua.pt

The applications should be sent to the Secretary of the TEMA of Aveiro University, Campus Universitário de Santiago, 3810-193 Aveiro, by registered mail, within the time frame of the call or hand delivered personally to the same address, or by email at: sec@mec.ua.pt
The duration of reception of applications will be the 23rd of February to the 10th of March 2011.
