  • Postdoctoral position at Imperial College London - Spine Biomechanics

    This is an exciting opportunity to join the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London. This post is funded by an UKRI Biomedical Catalyst grant awarded to Dr Nicolas Newell and an industry partner to investigate the biomechanics of a novel spinal implant.

    The main aim of the research is to develop complex, physiological ex vivo test methods that allows the biomechanical assessment of novel spinal implants. State-of-the art equipment such as a 9.4T MRI scanner, microCT machine, and a six degree of freedom robot arm will be used to give unprecedented insight into the biomechanics of the spine, and how implants intact with soft and hard tissues. The post will involve working closely with an industry partner who are developing a breakthrough treatment to restore spine function. This means the project will be fast paced with a strong application focus.

    You will benefit from joining a vibrant, multidisciplinary team with access to expertise across a range of fields. We are looking to appoint someone with strong experimental skills to participate in the different cutting-edge projects that happen in our research group. The post will be based in the open and collaborative Spine Biomechanics Group (newsfeed), which brings together scientists, engineers and clinicians to address interdisciplinary challenges in spine biomechanics research.

    For further details of the post contact Dr Nicolas Newell Interested applicants should send an up-to-date curriculum vitae to Dr Newell. Suitable candidates will be required to complete an electronic application form on the Imperial College London webpage in order for their qualifications to be addressed by College Registry.

    Closing date: 10th April
