Dear Auditory List, There is a Research Assistant post available at Imperial College London. It refers to acoustic imaging using signal processing techniques for detection of knee pathology (specifically osteoarthritis). More details at: Many thanks (and apologies for the cross-posting) Margarita Kotti ------------------------------------------------------- Job Title: Research Assistant Department/Division/FacultyDepartment of Surgery and Cancer / Division of Surgery / Musculoskeletal Section Salary Range: £29,350 – £32,520 per annum Closing Date: 28 September 2014 (midnight BST) 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.
