    Lecturer in Medical Robotics
    University of Strathclyde - Bioengineering Unit
    £32,751 - £45,336

    The vision of the University of Strathclyde is bold and transformational, placing it among the leading international technological universities. This promises an institution that is vibrant, dynamic and internationally focused, carrying out cutting-edge, multi-disciplinary research, education and knowledge exchange of global relevance. Accordingly, the University is focused on recruiting the best talent to enhance both research intensity and leadership in areas of strategic importance.

    The Bioengineering Unit at Strathclyde is a postgraduate department with a 50 year history of excellence in research and postgraduate training. Medical Robotics is an evolving multidisciplinary branch of our work that can impact on surgery, rehabilitation, assistive technologies and general automation in healthcare services. Our vision is to host a world leading research group where our established expertise in rehabilitation engineering, orthopaedic robotic surgery and biomechanics is directed toward the creation of advanced forms of medical devices that can deliver better surgical outcomes for arthroplasty, facilitate recovery of movement following injury or disease (rehabilitation) and augment function (assistive technology). This new lectureship will primarily be focused on research in the key areas of robotic device control, haptics and mechatronics. The post will be instrumental in supporting existing collaborations with the NHS and our industrial partners. The lectureship will be based in the Bioengineering Unit but will engage with researchers across the University and with industrial and clinical collaborators.

    You should possess a PhD in a relevant discipline, have an established track record in robotic engineering, possess the desire and ability to secure grant income, a growing reputation for quality research outputs and a strong desire to work collaboratively within a multidisciplinary team environment building your own research team. You should be self motivated, with good communication skills and be capable of managing your own workload to deadlines.
