  PhD Studentship in Orthopaedic Surgical Technology
  Prof A Hart
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Come and join the exciting area of bioengineering research to help innovate orthopaedic surgical technology. You will work in the leading medical implant retrieval research group, at the largest university in Europe (ranked 1st for Bioengineering), onsite at the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK.
  Nanoparticle-containing antimicrobial coatings, validation in laboratory tissue model of orthopaedic prosthesis
  Dr T Nichol, Prof T J Smith, Prof C Le Maitre
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Hypothesis. An antimicrobial sol-gel coating containing nanoparticles can be developed for prosthetic devices, and shown to be effective in a novel 3D tissue culture model of orthopaedic infections.
  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.
  Could anti-inflammatory treatment at ACL reconstruction improve biological, functional and clinical outcomes?
  Dr D Mason, Prof C A Holt
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
This project will test the hypothesis that inflammation after ACL reconstruction surgery is detectable in the joint fluids and blood, and reduces joint function and surgical outcomes; and that anti-inflammatory medication reduces inflammation and improves joint function and surgical outcomes.
  PhD in "Biomechanics and biomedical engineering in reconstructive foot & ankle surgery”
  Dr P Zioupos, Dr S Junaid
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a three year EPSRC Doctoral training Partnership Postgraduate studentship, supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to be undertaken within the Biomedical Engineering Research Unit at Aston University and the Forensics Biomechanics Laboratory in Cranfield University.
  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.
  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020
Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
  Novel Nanohybrid Coatings for Controlling the Degradation Rate of Bioresorbable Medical Devices
  Dr D Sun, Dr F Buchanan
Applications accepted all year round
Bioresorbable implants offer significant advantages over permanent implants for both cardiovascular and orthopaedic applications and offer the potential for restoration of normal tissue function.
  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.
  Next-generation of Intelligent Healthcare Device Controllers
  Dr I Georgilas
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Hundreds of thousands of people face significant challenges as a result of disease or injury. Patients can improve their independence and quality of life through specialised support but the number of healthcare professionals is inadequate to provide the required level of care.
