  • Postdoctoral Position in Cardiovascular Biomechanics at TrinityCollege Dublin, Ireland

    Postdoctoral opportunity in Cardiovascular Biomechanics and Tissue
    Growth/Remodelling in Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.

    This project is funded by an innovation Partnership grant awarded to Dublin
    City University and Trinity College Dublin from Enterprise Ireland and
    Medtronic Vascular, Galway, Ireland.

    Drug-eluting stents have emerged in recent years to overcome the long-term
    limitation of stents, namely in-stent restenosis. Results from clinical
    studies have shown that the success of intravascular stents is highly
    dependent on both the stent design and the anti-restenosis drug coating
    applied to the stent.

    Numerical modelling techniques can be used to optimise cardiovascular stent
    designs and the objective of this project is to develop a numerical
    preclinical testing tool that can be used to improve existing stent designs
    and/or develop new designs that have a low propensity for restenosis by
    numerically modelling the process of in-stent restenosis.

    This is a joint project between Dublin City University and Trinity College
    Dublin, however, the candidate will be located in Trinity College Dublin
    under the direct supervision of Prof. Patrick Prendergast, see for further details.

    Suitable candidates for this position include individuals with a PhD in
    Mechanical or Biomedical Engineering, Applied Mechanics or a related
    discipline, with experience in numerical modelling (preferably ABAQUS) and a
    keen interest and/or experience in tissue remodelling/growth and medical
    device design.

    Salary will be competitive and dependent upon experience. The fellowship is
    offered for a period of one year with the possibility of renewal. The
    candidate is expected to start as soon as possible.

    Applicants should send a cover letter stating their suitability for the
    position, together with a full CV including a list of publications and
    contact details of referees, by email to Dr. Tríona Lally at the address
