Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Reader in Implantable Electronics

University of Glasgow – College of Science and Engineering - James Watt School of Engineering

The James Watt School of Engineering (JWSE) at the University of Glasgow is an energetic and growing international centre of excellence for Engineering research and teaching. The School leads research in Aerospace Sciences; Autonomous Systems; Biomedical Engineering; Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering; Infrastructure and Environment; and Systems, Power and Energy. We have 150 academics and 168 post-doctoral researchers supported by 61 technicians and 27 professional services staff. Currently we have 450 research students working towards doctorates.

We are seeking to fill a position for an ambitious academic to join the James Watt School of Engineering in the area of implantable electronics. These electronics could be applied to biological or engineering systems. Possible topics include wireless energy delivery systems, implantation or embedding protocols, implanted electronic systems for biological tests or non-destructive evaluation and monitoring, embedded and implanted imaging systems, and wireless actuation and control of a host biological or engineering system. We expect this to be done with due recognition of the needs of responsible research and innovation. 

The post holder will join a vibrant environment that includes world leading groups in Communications, Sensing and Imaging; Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies; Medical and Industrial Ultrasonics; Space and Exploration Technologies; and Energy and Sustainability. The James Watt School of Engineering hosts fundamental research that is developed with the ambition to lead to industrial and academic impact. We expect the successful academic to complement and synergise with existing activities and to develop a network of collaborations locally (across the School of Engineering and the University) as well as to liaise with industry and clinicians to translate their research to the highest impact.
