    JOB ANNOUNCEMENT

    RESEARCH FELLOW
    Department of Mechanical Engineering
    University of Southampton

    BIOMECHANICS OF THE KNEE

    Applications are invited for a research fellow to form part of a team at
    Southampton that is carrying out research in the biomechanics of the knee
    to further improve knee implants. The post is for an eighteen months period,
    funded by the EPSRC, and is tenable by either a post-doctorate or
    post-graduate worker.

    The research is concerned with the modelling of deformable components in
    total knee replacement prostheses using advance computational procedures to
    assess the overall performance of such implants. The research to be carried
    out will use explicit finite element codes for simulating the non-linear
    behaviour and obtaining a time domain kinematic solution of the deformable
    components, combined with virtual prototyping techniques for display and
    manipulation of the resulting information. Candidates would ideally have
    experience in using finite element codes, dynamic analysis of mechanical
    systems, and familiarity with Unix would be an advantage.

    Salary in RA1A range 15,159 - 16,927 pa.

    Please quote "CSC Bio" in all correspondence. Closing date for applications
    is Wednesday 1st October 1997.

    Applications including CV and particulars of three referees should be sent
    to Dr. C. Simonis de Cloke, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University
    of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, SO17 1BJ. Tel: 01703-592713, Email:
    csc@soton.ac.uk, from whom further details can be obtained.

    The University is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
