NUFFIELD DEPARTMENT OF ORTHOPAEDICS, RHEUMATOLOGY AND MUSCULOSKELETAL SCIENCES (NDORMS)
Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Modelling for Tendon Tissue Engineering (139124)
Grade 7: Salary in the range of £32,236 – £39,609 per annum
Applications are invited for the position of a Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Modelling for Tendon Tissue Engineering to join an interdisciplinary team of researchers collaborating on a project led by Dr Mouthuy at the Botnar Research Centre, Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS), Oxford. This post will be included in the activities of the Carr group as well as Professor Jerusalem’s group at the Department of Engineering Science, Oxford and Professor Waters’ group at the Mathematical Institute, Oxford and as such the post holder will be required to work across these locations.
As a Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Modelling for Tendon Tissue Engineering you will participate in the activities of the research team in the Humanoid Bioreactor project, sharing skills and knowledge and publishing your findings in peer-reviewed journals. You will analyse, contextualise and interpret data, write and maintain programs and protocols for data analysis as well as train and supervise graduate and undergraduate students as appropriate.
You will hold a PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in a discipline of direct relevance to computational mechanics and/or tissue engineering. You will be competent with programming languages such as C/C++ and Matlab as well as numerical simulations, model calibration and validation. You will have an experience in implementing mathematical descriptions of physical biological processes and you will be highly self-motivated and committed to pursuing interdisciplinary research. Experience with handling clinical imaging data such as CT, MRI or ultrasound scans, strong competences in the use of CAD software to design materials and an ability to conduct experiments with cells and biomaterials are desirable.
This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 3 years.
The closing date for this position is 12 noon on Monday 18 March 2019. You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
