The University of London Interdisciplinary Research Centre (IRC) in
Biomedical Materials is carrying out an exciting and innovative
multidisciplinary research programme to establish second generation medical
implants and prostheses, with projects progressing from concept to the
patient.
Research is organised in 4 programme areas:
Bone and Joint Replacement;
Orthopaedic Systems;
Dental Applications;
Tissue Engineering.

The IRC is based at Queen Mary and Westfield College including St
Bartholemew's and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry and at
the Royal Free and University College Medical School including the
Institute of Orthopaedics at The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital Trust.
Further details of the IRC and its research programmes are available at
http://www.irc-biomed-materials.qmw.ac.uk/.

We are seeking applications for the following EPSRC PhD Studentships:

Mesenchymal stem cells in tissue engineered implants
Mechanical conditioning of cell seeded constructs
Imaging of cytoskeletal-mediated cell processes
Accelerated wear in a hip wear simulator
Cellular events at the surface of bioactive materials
Acetate binding co-polymerisation in biocomposites
Hydrocolloids as drug delivery systems
Fluoride ion delivery from methacrylates
Silicon elasteomers for soft prosthesis materials
A new complient vascular stent

To apply for one of these projects, you must have, or be expecting to
obtain, a 1st or 2i degree, or a 2ii and an M.Sc. in one of the following
subjects (or related subject areas) and be eligible for an EPSRC grant.
