We are seeking a full time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the group of Computational Mechanics of Materials at the Department of Engineering Science (central Oxford), with affiliated positions in the Mathematical Institute and NDORMS.  The post is funded by EPSRC and is fixed-term until 31st December 2023.


As a Postdoctoral Researcher in Computational Modelling for Tendon Tissue Engineering you will participate in the activities of the research team in the Humanoid Bioreactor project, sharing skills and knowledge and publishing your findings in peer-reviewed journals. You will analyse, contextualise and interpret data, write and maintain programs and protocols for data analysis as well as train and supervise graduate and undergraduate students as appropriate.


You will hold a PhD/DPhil (or near completion) in a discipline of direct relevance to computational mechanics and/or tissue engineering. You will be competent with programming languages such as C/C++ and Matlab as well as numerical simulations, model calibration and validation. You will have an experience in implementing mathematical descriptions of physical biological processes and you will be highly self-motivated and committed to pursuing interdisciplinary research. Experience with handling clinical imaging data such as CT, MRI or ultrasound scans, strong competences in the use of CAD software to design materials and an ability to conduct experiments with cells and biomaterials are desirable.
