  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

The biomedical engineering research group in the School of Engineering, University of Birmingham develop computational and experimental methodologies to characterise cardiovascular tissue, implants and biocompatible materials in-vivo and ex-vivo. Dr Lauren Thomas-Seale’s research focusses on developing elastography imaging, image processing techniques and validation methodologies to characterise the mechanical properties of healthy and diseased cardiovascular tissue. Experimental and/or computational PhDs are available, and may be tailored to the expertise and interests of the applicant.

Dr Lauren Thomas-Seale is an advocate of equality and diversity. Any applicants who require adaptations to their PhD due to their personal circumstances, for example part-time or flexible working are most welcome to apply.
