  • Professor or Associate Professor of Medical Engineering - University of Leeds, UK

    Are you an experienced and influential academic in medical engineering looking to join an internationally-renowned group? Do you have an excellent research track record, proven success in obtaining funding and the vision and drive to tackle new challenges? Are you passionate about delivering world-leading research and an exceptional student experience?

    We are seeking to appoint one candidate at either Associate Professor (EPSME1012) or Professorial level (EPSME1011). Seperate adverts describe each role, and candidates are encouraged to apply at the grade that is most appropriate to their career stage.

    These new senior positions form part of an ongoing process of investment in the School of Mechanical Engineering that has generated continuing growth in staff, student numbers and research income. As part of this strategy, we are seeking to broaden the scope of research activities in the iMBE, particularly into the areas of musculoskeletal multi-body modelling, or activity monitoring and rehabilitation, along with associated data acquisition and interpretation. These fields complement existing iMBE activity and provide collaborative opportunities across the university with research activities in medical robotics, sports science and clinical biomechanics.

    Closing Date Extended to : Sunday 5 January 2020
    The Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) at the University of Leeds is a world-leading centre for medical engineering. The Institute spans the faculties of Engineering & Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences, and brings together a multidisciplinary team dedicated to improving the quality of life of an ageing population and achieving a vision of ‘50 active years after 50’. Driven by clinical challenges, the iMBE undertakes research to innovatively develop, test and translate novel therapies and devices into practical clinical applications. The research focuses on longer lasting joint replacements, tissue sparing interventions and biological scaffolds for tissue regeneration, supported by computational and experimental simulation systems for design and pre-clinical testing. Over the last 10 years, the iMBE has received awards from government, charities, healthcare bodies and industry which total in excess of £60 million, and is recognised for its excellence in medical engineering, receiving the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education in 2012. The iMBE hosts a number of national centres, including the EPSRC Innovation and Knowledge Centre in Medical Technologies, as well as a partnership with the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust through an NIHR Biomedical Research Centre.
