Research Associate in Biomedical Engineering
Heriot-Watt University - School of Engineering and Physical Sciences
United Kingdom

We are excited to be able to recruit a biomedical engineering postdoctoral research associate to the Soft Tissues and Biomedical Devices Lab at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland. The selected candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team to work on an EPSRC funded project seeking to understand the process of wound healing, from a biomechanics/materials science perspective. 

Working with skin immunologists, engineers and clinicians, this post will identify the key mechanical data that is required to develop novel wound sensing, treatment and diagnostic methods. This project seeks to understand the biomechanics of wound healing - which is well established biologically, but poorly understood mechanically, especially at the microscale. This role will study these and their underlying structure during healing.

The post is available for 12 months. 

You will have a strong engineering PhD with a focus on biomechanics, biomedical engineering, material characterisation or related (ideally with experience of soft tissues), or a PhD thesis submitted in this area before the start of the project together with a strong understanding of biological material behaviours (e.g. hyperelastic models)

Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Michael Crichton at
