Position: Research Fellow in Tomo-SAXS: Dynamic Tomographic and SAXS Imaging of Joint Mechanics
Institution: University College London
Department: Department of Mechanical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: UCL is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow to be part of an international, EPSRC funded project to couple synchrotron micro-tomography and SAXS to enable imaging of fibrillar tissue in joints and intervertebral discs. The bioengineering challenge is to determine the correlated 3D deformation and structural changes at the molecular-, fibrillar-, and cell-matrix length-scales under physiological load in intact tissue, and how these alter in ageing, injury and disease. You will be based at Harwell Campus where Diamond Light Source is located, but will also work with collaborators at QMUL, Manchester, and ESRF (Grenoble); Your goal will be to adapt existing in situ rigs for physiological loading for CT and SAXS imaging, developing experiments and analysis codes to measure strains at the nanoscale using digital volume correlation. A second PDRF will lead the 3D-SAXS development; The position is available immediate on a fixed-term contract of 3 years in the first instance
Requirements: You will have a PhD qualification awarded for research and extensive knowledge and expertise in some of the following areas: tomographic imaging, digital image or volume correlation, biological sample imaging and handling, programming, and synchrotron X-ray imaging. Your expertise should be at a level appropriate for the conduct of research and publishing new knowledge in leading international research journals. The post-holder will need to show a high level of initiative and an ability to work collaboratively and independently. Applicants should have good team-working skills and a strong command of English
