We are recruiting!

We have recently had one of our research projects funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council so we are in the very fortunate position to be able to recruit another postdoctral research associate.  This role will be centred on the topic of wound healing with a view to understanding the microstructure of wounds as they repair, and working with other postdocs who are developing a sensor to measure these changes.  This project has the potential to have significant impact in clinical practice and address a £5 bn NHS problem – effective wound management.

We currently have a vacancy for postdoctoral research associate to join our lab on a one year contract.  The candidate will have expertise around tissue mechanics/material characterisation development, and will need to hold a PhD.  Start date will be early-2020.  More details in the job advert below:
