  • PhD Studentship at University of Exeter

    Applications are invited for a PhD studentship, supported by the Great
    Western Research Alliance (
    ) and Simpleware Ltd
    ( ), is available in the
    Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Exeter, in
    collaboration with the Universities of Bristol and Bath.

    Project description
    The project will either:

    (1) involve the application of finite element techniques to explore a
    range of image based models with a particular emphasis on pre and post
    clinical modelling of medical implants. This post would be suitable for
    an Engineering candidate interested in computational modelling
    particularly in the medical arena.
    (2) look at the development of innovative software tools for use in
    clinical simulations/for virtual surgery. This post would be suitable
    for a candidate with a computer science background or with strong
    programming skills looking at developing innovative clinical software

    This is an exciting opportunity to work with an industrial body who are
    leaders in the field, and with three research groups with dynamic
    research cultures. The student will become highly skilled in modern
    image-based meshing techniques and medical modelling. Simpleware is the
    world leader in the conversion of 3D images (as obtained from MRI, CT,
    MicroCT for example) into high quality Finite Element, CAD and Rapid
    Prototyping models. The Universities of Exeter, Bristol and Bath have
    excellent reputations and are internationally recognized in many fields
    of research.

    To apply for either of the posts, candidates must have a 2(i) or first
    class degree and be resident in the UK or EU.
    Unfortunately applications from candidates outside the EU cannot be

    The studentship is for 3 years and includes a subsistence grant of at
    least £12,500 per annum with all fees paid for UK / EU students.
