New 3-year PhD studentship available at UCL Mechanical Engineering on biomechanics of skull growth in children with craniosynostosis

Application deadline: 14 June 2018

This studentship provides an opportunity for a UK/EU candidate to join a 3-year study program in UCL’s Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The aim of this research project is to optimise management of craniosynostosis from a biomechanical point of view. The long term goal of the work is to provide advice to surgeons on when to operate and how best to manage the condition from a biomechanical point of view to ensure the best possible outcome for the child. This project is a joint collaboration between UCL Mechanical Engineering and several UK/EU partners.

Applicants should have a strong background (at least a 2.1 honours degree or predicted) in an appropriate engineering discipline (e.g. Mechanical and Biomedical). Previous experience in finite element method, use of ANSYS/ABAQUS finite element software, image processing, and geometric morphometric methods would be an advantage. The candidate must be self-motivated, take the lead in running the project and liaise the collaboration between the three project partners.
