About the Project

Situated within the world-leading School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, the research team led by Professor Mark Lewis has over 25+ years of experience in bioengineering of functional tissue engineered musculoskeletal constructs. Over this period the group has investigated numerous facets of musculoskeletal biology including; developing bioengineered models of the human neuromuscular junction, mechanical and electrical stimulation of skeletal muscle to induce muscle hypertrophy, chemical/mechanical injury and regeneration assays, models of tissue vascularization and hypoxia, disease models including type II diabetes, and various nutritional interventions. Applicants will be joining a well-established research team working within the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences, interested in the development of physiologically relevant models of skeletal muscle. Using bioengineering applications, this research team has published extensively in the field of musculoskeletal biology. Potential projects can work within any area concerned with musculoskeletal biology, depending on the candidates previous experience and/or areas of potential interest.

Entry requirements:

Applications are invited from ambitious, self-motivated candidates to undertake a PhD in the field of musculoskeletal biology in the School of Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences at Loughborough University, who have at least an Upper Second Class Honours degree or equivalent in a biological or engineering related subject.

English language requirements

Applicants must meet the minimum English language requirements. Further details are available on the International website.
