  Tailored mechanical design of biodegradable metallic orthopaedic implant devices
  Dr M Staiger, Dr B Nowak
Applications accepted all year round
Short Project Description. During the last two decades, rigid internal fixation with micro-plates and screws has gained widespread acceptance in the correction of craniomaxillofacial deformities.
  Analysis of Orthopaedic Implants: A Multi-scale Approach
  Dr B Pal, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and will be supervised by Dr Bidyut Pal, Dr Gianluca Tozzi and Professor Gordon Blunn.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round
Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Optimisation of mesenchymal stem cell interactions with photoactive materials for dental and orthopaedic repair
  Prof W Palin, Dr R M Shelton, Dr P Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
For repair and replacement of dental tissue, “photoactive” biomaterials offer significant benefits since light curing provides a fully controllable setting mechanism of a single paste system, which requires no mixing by the surgeon.
  Development of bioactive orthopaedic cement materials
  Prof W Palin, Dr R M Shelton, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
The widely used bone cement type, polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) has many limitations including difficulty in handling, slow setting, shrinkage and heat production, which ultimately reduces the lifetime of the artificial implanted device.
  A statistical parametric tool for flatfoot surgery
  Dr P Zioupos, Dr S Junaid
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
The main purpose of the PhD is to investigate the key parameters impacting surgical outcomes with the aim of improving surgical planning and prognosis.
  Deformation avalanches in small-scaled components and how to prevent them
  Dr A Roy
Applications accepted all year round
The prediction of plastic deformation of metals has been an important research topic for decades, which primarily reduces to the question of properly understanding the motions of dislocations as the major cause of plastic flows in metals.
  PhD Studentship in Human-Computer Interaction: developing the state of the art of human-robot interactions (HRI) whilst developing a semi-autonomous wheelchair
  Dr C Holloway, Dr T Carlson
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the UCL Interaction Centre (UCLIC, https://uclic.ucl.ac.uk/), funded by a Horizon 2020 project grant focussed on crowd navigation of robots.
  Modelling and assessment of diffusion processes of strontium-based bone fillers and its effect on human tissues
  Dr H Batchelor, Dr J Camilleri, Prof PR Cooper
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Loss of bone can occur due to disease or trauma. From the dental and orthopaedic perspective, bone loss can occur following dental infections in non-vital teeth, infections after implant placement and trauma.
