Research Fellow in Spinal Bone Fracture and Prevention in Spinal Metastases
Leeds, United Kingdom
Job posting number: #7116752 (Ref:EPSME1121)
Posted: November 24, 2022
Would you like to learn new skills in medical engineering with a focus on multiscale bone biomechanics and the role of disease? Could you be a future research leader in providing solutions to some of Europe’s most pressing healthcare problems? Do you want to further your career at one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?
OncoEng is a UKRI EPSRC funded flagship programme grant concerned with research into the identification and prophylactic intervention of metastatic bone disease in the spine. It comprises a collaboration between the University of Leeds, Imperial College London and University College London. OncoEng+ network brings together a researchers and innovators from a wide set of disciplines with the UK and abroad to tackle the challenges that underpin cancer using engineering and the physical sciences.
Specifically, this role aims to develop and implement new techniques to assess long term fatigue and fracture mechanisms within metastatic infiltrated spinal vertebrae and how these fractures may be prevented using novel minimally invasive implants.
The post also provides opportunities for enhanced professional development through further collaboration and training opportunities. To complete this exciting project you will be based in the Institute of Functional Surfaces and have access to world leading equipment including advanced simulators and other apparatus. This project will be supervised by Dr Michael Bryant, Professor Tze Wah, Professor Richard Hall and is part of the EPSRC Programme Grant 'OncoEng'.
We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.
