    University of Glasgow

    Post Doc and PhD Studentship available

    Research Associate

    Salary: £31,513 - £35,469

    The post is part of the EU Project ExAct ResoMat co-ordinated by the
    University of Nijmegen and Warsaw University of Technology. The aim of
    the project is to develop degradable bioactive composite materials
    with high mechanical properties. The post holder will be required to
    carry out and publish research findings relative to the project on
    resorbable materials for biological applications. You will also
    produce materials for testing by other members of project consortium
    and to work in collaboration with other members of the project
    consortium. The post is currently funded to 30 September 2010 although
    a request for extension to 31 March 2011 has been submitted to the
    European Commission.

    For informal discussions please contact Prof Liz Tanner on

    PhD studentship

    University of Glasgow AND Devro Medical Ltd

    We are looking for a PhD student in an exciting interdisciplinary
    project drawing on skills from the engineering and biomedical fields.
    The project will introduce the student to the problems of developing a
    novel composite material, through to mechanical and biological testing
    and finally into a clinical application. The project will include in
    vitro cell culture studies through to in vivo implantation. The
    formulation of the composite will be optimised so that appropriate
    mechanical properties are produced. Patterning of the films will
    require engineering expertise, the cell culture and eventual
    implantation work will require biological skills. Therefore during
    this PhD the student will need to balance the engineering and
    biological requirements of the eventual device, they will learn to
    work both in academic and commercial environments and in a
    multidisciplinary team. This will provide the student with an exciting
    and timely training across disciplines and provide them with much
    sought after skills in the rapidly developing field of biomedical

    Due to the funding source this studentship is ONLY available to UK
    residents as described in the EPSRC rules ( If you do
    not fulfil the UK residency requirements, please note we cannot award
    you this studentship.

    For informal discussions please contact Stewart White (
    ) or Prof Liz Tanner ( To apply please submit
    CV and letter of application along with names of two referees to
    Professor Tanner.

    Closing date: 18th December 2009.
