RUA Medical Devices is an experienced full-service medical device contract developer, contract manufacturer and implantable fabric specialist. In April 2020, AorTech International plc acquired RUA Medical Devices Ltd to create a fully formed medical device business. AorTech subsequently rebranded to the RUA Life Sciences Plc and is now the holding company of the group, trading through four businesses (RUA Medical Devices Ltd, RUA Vascular Ltd, RUA Biomaterials Ltd, and RUA Structural Heart Ltd) all of which exploit the group’s proprietary Elast-EonTM polymer technology. RUA Medical Devices Ltd has 32 FTE and generated turnover of over £1 million in 2022/23.

The University of Strathclyde has joined forces with RUA to develop a series of sophisticated new products, and we are seeking a highly motivated KTP Associate to work with us in this exciting new collaboration. The project is part of the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) programme, funded by UK Research and Innovation through Innovate UK. To find out how KTP works and the vital role you will play if you successfully secure a KTP Associate position please visit: www.ktpws.org.uk.

The KTP Associate will be an employee of the University of Strathclyde and will be supervised by chemistry and engineering academics but will spend most of their working time at the company’s HQ, design and manufacturing facility in Irvine on the Clyde Coast. As a Design & Modelling Engineer, you will work alongside a second KTP Associate (a Polymer Engineer) to establish new insights into polymer-processing-property relationships. At the end of the KTP there is the opportunity for a permanent position within the company.

 

A PhD in Design and Finite Element Modelling or a related discipline is essential, and some industrial experience is desirable. The successful candidate will have a ‘hands-on’ approach with good interpersonal and team working skills and must be able to communicate at all levels and work to tight deadlines.

 

The position includes extensive management training a generous personal development budget. With the support of academic experts, the West of Scotland KTP Centre, and mentoring from a KTP Adviser, this is an excellent opportunity which offers an extremely interesting, varied and challenging role.
