  • 3 fully funded PhD opportunities to join the institute of medical and biological engineering (Leeds, UK) in Summer 2021

    Three PhD opportunities are currently available at the institute of medical and biological engineering (iMBE) at the University of Leeds, UK. The studentships are fully funded through the EPSRC and include maintenance and fees for UK and international students. Closing date for applications is 28th March 2021.

    The projects are on
    • Enabling stratification of intervertebral disc repair
    • Optimisation of osteochondral grafts for the treatment of cartilage lesions
    • Ligament repair in the ankle for restoration of function: exploring the application of decellularised grafts
    You will join the multi-disciplinary, dynamic Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) embedded within the School of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds. The iMBE is a world-renowned medical engineering research centre which specialises in research and translation of medical technologies that promote ’50 active years after 50’. In this PhD project, you will be able to access unique experimental and computational facilities developed through a large programme of research. The University of Leeds has a friendly, supportive and diverse community of postgraduate researchers who come from all over the world.

    As a PhD student within iMBE, there will be opportunities to contribute to wider activities related to medical technologies including public and patient engagement, group training and social events. Groups of researchers working on aligned projects or using similar methods meet regularly to share ideas and best practice, and we encourage collegiate working. We will support your long term career ambitions through bespoke training and encourage external secondments, laboratory visits or participation at international conferences.

    Please see more information online, including contact details for each of the projects and application process.
