Lecturer in Active Implantable Devices

University College London - UCL Dept of Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering

The Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering Department at UCL is seeking to appoint a highly motivated Lecturer with expertise in active implantable devices. The successful candidate will be joining a thriving Department that is committed to the highest standards of teaching and research: we aim to develop significant advances in fundamental knowledge and to pioneer new technologies that deliver impact.

The Department is host to the UCL Implanted Devices Group (IDG) whose focus has been on the design, development and testing of practical implantable electronic devices for use in healthcare. The main application has been electrical stimulation for treatment after spinal cord injury, and there is a long association with the London Spinal Cord Injury Centre at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. The implant technology is also being applied to electronic devices and neural interfaces for several other conditions. In addition to devices and system design, we have a continuing interest in materials and methods to obtain the very long lifetime required for treating chronic conditions. We are looking to expand the research portfolio and the new lecturer is expected to become an active member of this group.

As well as leading collaborative research activities, the candidate will be expected contribute to the Department’s undergraduate and MSc taught programmes in Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics, and to the supervision of PhD students.

The ideal candidate will have an outstanding track record in electronic implanted device research and have teaching experience in medical electronics and biomedical engineering. A first degree and a PhD in Electrical or Biomedical Engineering or a related discipline are required. The candidate is expected to develop and lead a world-leading programme of research and to attract funding to support this.
