Job Title: Research Assistant
Department/Division/FacultyDepartment of Surgery and Cancer / Division
of Surgery / Musculoskeletal Section

Salary Range: £29,350 – £32,520 per annum

Charing Cross Campus

The MSk (Musculoskeletal) Lab at the Charing Cross Hospital campus,
Imperial College London, was recently awarded the highly prestigious
2014 Welcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Fund Networks of
Excellence Award to support a research project which aims to use
acoustic technology and signal processing techniques to develop and
evaluate a novel medical imaging system for assessing the structural
integrity of the knee joint during functional activity (i.e. walking).
The project will inform and be supported by existing studies in the
MSk Lab that explore the biomechanics of ‘healthy’ and osteoarthritic
gait. The Principal Investigator and Head of the MSk Lab is Professor
Justin Cobb, Professor of Orthopaedics.

This is an interdisciplinary project that supports collaboration
between the Faculties of Medicine, Engineering and Centre for
Co-Curricular Studies, Imperial College London. The post-holder will
be responsible for the day-to-day research project tasks, including
interacting with patients and acquiring quality data, maintaining
equipment and lab space, reviewing the existing literature, preparing
ethical and research governance applications if required, research
dissemination, etc. with the support of Dr Victoria Manning
(postdoctoral Research Associate).

The post provides a unique opportunity for a self-motivated
individual, interested in pursuing a career in the field of biomedical
science, to embark on a novel and exciting interdisciplinary research
project over the upcoming year, supported by clinicians and academics
across three university faculties.

We are looking for someone with a BSc (2:1 or above) or equivalent in
biomedical sciences, exercise physiology, biomechanics, biomedical
engineering or similar, with an interest in human biomechanics and the
use of technology to improve health outcomes.

This post is full time and fixed term until 31 August 2015 in the
first instance, and will be based at the Charing Cross Hospital Campus
located in Hammersmith.
