  Adapting and testing the feasibility of an enhanced community-based rehabilitation programme following hip fracture for people with dementia or cognitive impairment
  Prof N Williams
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Proximal femoral fracture (commonly referred to as hip fracture) is a major health problem in the frail elderly [1], and 42% have cognitive impairment [2].
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture - Ref: SL1UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Development of methods to evaluate dynamic fracture toughness of metallic materials at very high loading rates under conditions of limited plastic deformation
  Dr Y Janin, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Many important industrial applications require that dynamic fracture toughness of materials is quantified and the accuracy of safety assessments depends on this material property.
  Why do bones break? The nanomechanics of osteoporotic bone fragility fracture
  Dr R Abel, Prof J Cobb
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
An opportunity has arisen for a 3-year PhD studentship within the Musculoskeletal Laboratory at Imperial College London. The studentship is funded by the Department of Surgery and Cancer at Imperial College London.
  Fracture problems in microstructured materials - Ref: KB2UF2018
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round
Fracture in science and technology is understood as the total or partial separation of an originally intact body or structure. This phenomenon may have destructive effects on structures and lead to catastrophic failures, with high economic consequences or, in the worst case, loss of lives.
  (STFC DTP) Combining neutron diffraction experiments and microstructural analyses to investigate the fracturing of pyroxenes
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr K Joy
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
The link between aqueous fluids and potential habitability means that assessing the distribution of liquid water at or near the surface of Mars throughout its history remains a strong focus of missions to Mars.
  Addressing unmet clinical needs in the repair and rehabilitation of non-union fractures - Ref: SL3UF2018
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round
A non-union is a broken bone that fails to heal. These result from both civilian and military injuries and lead to pain, suffering and loss of dignity.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials - Ref: KB3UF2018
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round
Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  The Effect Of Osteoporosis On Bone Cell Response To Strontium.
  Dr S Clarke, Dr F Buchanan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Osteoporosis mainly affects older people and causes an increased risk of vertebral, hip and wrist fractures with every decade over 50 years of age leading to an incidence of nine million fragility fractures per year worldwide.
