As part of an international EPSRC-funded project (Tomo-SAXS) between QMUL, UCL, UoM, Diamond and ESRF, QMUL's School of Engineering & Materials Science (SEMS) is seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Assistant to couple synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and phase-contrast micro-tomography (pCT) to enable 3D imaging of fibrillar collagenous tissue in joints and intervertebral discs (IVD). The bioengineering challenge is to determine the correlated 3D deformation and structural changes at the molecular-, fibrillar-, and cell-matrix length-scales under physiological load in intact tissue, and how these alter in ageing, injury and disease. The post will be solely based on the Harwell Campus.
