Job Title:
Postdoctoral Research Associate in Skeletal Ageing and Biomechanics

A position has become available for a highly motivated postdoctoral research scientist to be involved with studies to determine the effects of geroprotectors on bone and joint ageing.
You will use ex vivo X-ray microCT and histomorphometry combined with new computational approaches for an in depth structural analysis of bone, bone strength, cartilage degradation and subchondral bone changes.
The post is funded by Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and will be based at the Insigneo Institute for In silico Medicine and the MRC Arthritis Research UK Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) in Sheffield.
You should hold a PhD in Engineering, Physics or related disciplines (or being close to submission), be familiar with experimental, imaging, image processing and computational modelling techniques for assessment of bone properties. A willingness to learn histological techniques is also essential.
The post is full time for 2 years, reporting to Dr Enrico Dall’Ara and Prof. Bellantuono
