The post is to support a BBSRC-funded project in the Biological and Medical Engineering Research Group at the University of Hull, and is fixed term until October 2014. The aim of the project is to assess the variation of cortical and trabecular bone morphology in the mammalian mandible and to understand how this variation relates to differences in feeding adaptations between species. The project will require undertaking in vitro experiments, quantitative 3D analyses of high-resolution CT scans and functional computer modelling.

The successful applicant will have a first degree in an appropriate life sciences or engineering subject, together with a PhD in bioengineering, biomechanics or relevant related field. S/he must have significant experience of finite element analysis and the processing of CT image data. Experience of modelling skulls and/or multibody dynamics analysis would be a significant advantage. S/he will work closely with Professor Michael Fagan and other researchers in the group who are working on a number of related projects.

To discuss this role informally, please contact Professor M J Fagan, email: m.j.fagan@hull.ac.uk
