The Bioengineering Science Research Group at the University of Southampton invites applications for an 18 month post-doctoral position investigating the use of imaging techniques to characterise the mechanical performance of knee arthroplasty. The project, which will involve the development of state of the art, computed tomography based imaging techniques, is sponsored by the EPSRC. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct physical experiments on implanted cadaver knees to assess stress and strain within the construct based on digital volume correlation data generated from micro computed tomography scans. These will be verified against computational predictions as part of a verification process.
