    Hello Biomech-L

    I'm resubmitting the below, as I think it got lost somewhere on friday....

    Closing date for the below opportunities is the 11th June.

    Kind regards

    Steve Abbott


    Ph.D Studentship and two summer student posts available at Anglia Ruskin
    University, Chelmsford, United Kingdom.

    Anglia Ruskin University has had an ongoing programme of research on Phono
    Arthrometry since 2005. This is the study of sounds generated naturally by a
    joint in motion, and has value as a fast, non-invasive, and cheap means of
    gaining detailed diagnostic information about the internal health of a joint.
    The programme has resulted in the development of an experimental prototype
    that performed excellently in early blinded clinical tests.

    An expansion of research activity has made the following posts available
    within the Faculty of Health & Social Care, based at our Chelmsford Campus:

    Summer Studentships. 200 per week.

    2 Summer Studentships are available, from early July, for 8 weeks. These are
    to carry out further processing work on the substantial data set collected
    with the experimental prototype. They would suit undergraduates in a numerate
    discipline, looking to gain direct experience of commercially focused
    research in a university environment.

    Ph.D Studentship. 12940 per annum, plus fees.

    A 3 year fully funded Ph.D position is available, for take up in September
    2009, or slightly before. The Ph.D will focus on using the Experimental Phono
    Arthrometer in a clinical environment, investigating the responses of the new
    instrument to a wide range of patients with Osteo-Arthritis. The Ph.D will
    conclude with a full double blinded clinical trial of the new device.

    To apply for the Ph.D Studentship you should be completing, or have, a
    Masters degree in a discipline that involved collection and analysis of
    numerical data, and an interest in medical devices and technology. To apply
    for the summer studentships you should have a minimum of excellent skills
    with Microsoft Excel, and be undertaking, or have completed, a degree in any
    numerate discipline.

    Applications for all 3 posts are by standard form, however in the first
    instance; please submit your current CV as a pre-application. Instructions
    will be
    sent out to potential candidates. Don't forget to say which post you are
    applying for.
