Do you want to make a difference by applying engineering to medical applications for improved patient treatment? Are you able to think outside the box to find innovative yet practical solutions?
Do you want to join an established team of researchers, clinicians and industry partner?
The Surgical Technologies Group (Mechanical Engineering) have been developing soft load sensing technologies and exploring how they can be applied to improve healthcare interventions for a range of conditions.
In this role you will be undertaking research to integrate load sensing technology into a commercially available wearable medical aid, with the aim of providing the wearer with personalised feedback and the clinician with valuable usage data.
This role is an exciting opportunity to work on novel medical technology in a team of academic, clinical and industry partners.
Holding an undergraduate or masters degree in Mechatronics or Robotics (or a closely allied discipline), or equivalent experience, you will have a strong background in design, fabrication and experimental evaluation of electronic sensing systems, microprocessors and PCB circuits, and experience in medical engineering device design.
