    PhD Studentship in Smart Orthopaedic Devices at Imperial College London

    Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in smart implants and tooling for orthopaedic surgery, within the Medical Engineering Group of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London. The studentship includes fees and a London-weighted stipend and has an October 2017 start date.

    Metal additive manufacturing technology offers exciting new opportunities to embed sensors in surgical tooling and implants, enabling real-time monitoring of orthopaedic procedures and post-operative outcomes. The aim of this PhD is to exploit this opportunity, developing new smart devices to improve the treatment of joint pain and disease.
