The Centre for Blast Injury Studies at Imperial College London is a unique collaboration between civilian and military researchers to bring together experts from clinical, engineering and science fields in order to propose solutions on how best to design, protect and educate against high impulse events. The Centre is currently recruiting a research assistant/associate to design, test and validate a device for distal femur amputation. The device will restore the femur to its natural length, allowing a conventional knee socket prosthesis to be worn. Testing shall design the optimum bone fixation for the device, manufacture prototype parts and prove the safety and efficacy of the design.

The interested candidate should have a first class or upper second class degree in Bioengineering or Mechanical Engineering. Experience with experimental testing and material characterisation in biomechanical applications is essential. Experience with implant design and manufacture using UHMWPE, PEEK or additive manufactured Ti alloy would be desirable.

Applications close on November 27th and can be made via http://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/AMH204/res...ant-associate/
