Research Fellow in Hard-Soft Tissue Restoration using Lasers

Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have a passion to uncover new methodologies for the treatment of load-bearing bones? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

Hard-soft tissue interface based materials engineering research is required for bone and oral tissue engineering, using novel fabrication technique such as calcium phosphate based bio-mineral synthesis, soft-macromolecular materials (e.g. chitosan) for bone implants and tooth enamel surfaceengineering. The project aims to integrate materials synthesis with ultra-fast laser processing for tissue integration in vitro leading to future in vivo studies. The project aims to apply the techniques developed for damaged implant restoration in damaged bone and in enamels and surrounding gum tissue.

You will undertake research developing a biomaterial to substitute damaged hard-soft tissue and then sintering using ultra-fast lasers.
