EPSRC CASE Studentship: Development and evaluation of a new device for the clinical measurement of tissue blood flow and tissue oxygenation

We wish to appoint a PhD studentship fully funded through the EPSRC Industrial CASE studentship award scheme (http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/funding/students/coll/icase/Pages/faqs.aspx  ). The studentship is available to UK residents with the equivalent of a first class or upper second class degree in relevant disciplines, e.g. physiological and analytical sciences with an interest in medical instrumentation and clinical measurements on volunteers. The studentship will last for 36 months and can commence from October 2011. Further particulars and information on how to apply can be found at https://www.southampton.ac.uk/jobs/index.shtml . The student will be based within the Human Development and Health Division (www.som.soton.ac.uk/research/dohad ) of the Faculty of Medicine and be part of the multidisciplinary Vascular Research group, undertaking experimental, bioengineering and translational clinical research.

The studentship will build on established relationships between the University of Southampton's Faculties of Medicine and of Engineering Sciences and the industrial partner. The aim of the project is to develop a new instrument for clinical measurement of tissue blood flow and tissue oxygenation. The student will initially use prototypes to develop instrument functionality, evaluating and optimizing specifications in the appropriate university and industrial laboratories clinical and laboratory facilities. Devices will be evaluated in the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility at Southampton General Hospital. The student will engage with user groups to establish clinical and user requirements and how the devices may best be exploited to help patients and benefit UK healthcare.

For further details contact Prof Geraldine Clough, Faculty of Medicine (G.F.Clough@soton.ac.uk) or Mrs Julie Hickman (j.hickman@soton.ac.uk ).  The closing date for these positions is September 23rd 2011 with interviews later that month. To apply, please email an up to date CV (including names of 2 referees) and a covering letter to Professor Geraldine Clough (or mail to the Institute of Developmental Sciences, Mailpoint 887, Southampton General Hospital, Tremona Road, Southampton, SO16 6YD
