Two Postdoctoral Research Associates

Polyurethanes for Medical Devices

Cambridge Centre for Medical Materials
Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy

Two 36-month Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available, funded
by the EPSRC, the DTI and industrial sponsors.  In collaboration with the
University of Leeds, the projects will develop controlled chemistry
polyurethanes for application in blood pumps, wound dressings and
orthopaedic bearings.  The microstructural, physical and bio response of
materials from a programme of precision synthesis at Leeds will be explored,
and the results fed back in a process of informed molecular and
microstructural design.

One of the projects will focus on time resolved synchrotron X-ray scattering
of deformation and processing.  For this position, experience in using
synchrotron radiation sources is desirable, although not essential.   The
other project will exploit techniques such as environmental scanning
electron microscopy, confocal microscopy and thermal analysis, and will
include assessment of in vitro bio response of the novel materials.
 
Applicants should have, or expect to have, a PhD in a relevant discipline.
The appointments are intended to commence as soon as possible.  Salary will
be on the University's RA1A  scale, which ranges from 16 775 to 25 213 pa.
A letter of application and a curriculum vitae (including the names and
addresses of two referees) should be sent  to Dr Ruth E. Cameron, University
of Cambridge, Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, Cambridge
Centre for Medical Materials, Pembroke Street, Cambridge, CB2 3QZ,
rec11@cam.ac.uk, so as to reach her not later than 31 January 2001.

The University is committed to equality of opportunity.
