Research Associate in Bioengineering at Imperial College London

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoc position in Bioengineering at Imperial College London. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before 09/09/2018.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the group of Dr Angela Kedgley. The group investigates the effects of ageing and joint pathologies in the upper limb using both experimental and computational methods. The post is funded by The Dunhill Medical Trust to create, validate, and employ a new instrumented orthosis for the treatment of thumb osteoarthritis. This project will be conducted in collaboration with clinicians at Universities of Oxford and Leeds.

The Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London is leading the bioengineering agenda both nationally and internationally, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge in the discipline's three main areas: Biomedical Engineering (Developing devices, techniques and interventions for human health), Biological Engineering (Solving problems related to the life sciences and their applications for health), Biomimetics (Using the structures and functions of living organisms as models for the design and engineering of materials and machines). The Department's staff comes from diverse academic disciplines including all main branches of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences and medicine, creating a rich collaborative environment. Housed in substantial purpose-built space within the historic Royal School of Mines and its adjacent Bessemer buildings, the Department boasts state-of-the-art laboratories, including 'wet labs' for cell culture, chemistry, histology, flow studies, biosensors and electrophysiology, biomaterials, molecular biology, and high throughput biological screening; as well as 'dry labs' for modelling, electronics, imaging and mechanics. The space has been designed to promote greater interaction among researchers - just what is needed for the interdisciplinary field that is modern bioengineering.

You must have a PhD in (or equivalent experience) in computing, engineering, or physical sciences, experience working in the clinical environment, a high level of competence in optical motion capture techniques, and be proficient in the use of appropriate scientific software, specifically including Matlab.

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range of 33,380 to 35,061 per annum.
