    IDA Scholar in Bioengineering
    University College Dublin

    As part of its programme to provide post-doctoral research opportunities
    for young scholars of proven academic excellence, University College Dublin
    is pleased to announce the position of IDA Scholar in Bioengineering.
    Scholars enjoy a prestigious three-year fellowship, with an attractive
    remuneration package.

    The Scholar will work with the interdisciplinary Bioengineering Research
    Centre in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (see details below).
    Applicants must have an established academic and research record, and be
    qualified to Doctoral level in a relevant engineering or science
    discipline. Applicants will be required to submit a research proposal in
    the areas of biomechanics or biomaterials.

    Further details and application forms may be obtained from the Personnel
    Office, University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4.
    Telephone: + 353 1 706 1409

    The closing date for receipt of completed applications is Thursday 19 March
    BIOENGINEERING RESEARCH CENTRE, University College Dublin, Ireland

    An interdisciplinary group working in the area of medical devices and
    materials, the group brings together engineers, material scientists,
    biochemists, anatomists, Veterinary surgeons and medical practitioners.
    The main research themes are: (i) biomaterials and (ii) orthopaedic
    The Centre chairs the working group on Surgical Implants as part the
    Healthcare Consultative Committee. The Centre is also acting as the Irish
    representative on the EU Concerted Action in Skeletal Implants, developing
    policy to prioritise research topics in bioengineering. The BRC is located
    in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

    Some current projects:
    - Synthetic bone grafts
    - Modeling of Bone as a composite material
    - Modelling contact between the surfaces in human joints
    - Simulation of human joints
    - Analysis of pores in Bone Cement
    - Analysis of the cement pedicles at the cement/bone interface
    - Damage models of cemented hip reconstructions
    - Damage accumulation in cemented hip replacements
    - Cracks along bimaterial interfaces
    - Tribilogy and materials for articulating surfaces
