Tibial Plate Stability in Augmented Knee Arthroplasty, Supervisors: Professor A Crocombe, Dr W Xu, Dr D Ewins
Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship within the School of Engineering at the University of Surrey.
In knee replacement, augmentation is necessary when quality of tibial bone stock is poor.
In such cases a tibial plate with an extended stem is conventionally used.
This will be achieved through a combination of 3D finite element analysis (FEA) incorporating bone remodelling algorithms and bio-mechanical testing.
Applicants should have expertise in computational mechanics in general and FEA in particular.
They should have at least the equivalent of a good upper second class honours degree in Mechanical, Civil or related engineering disciplines or Physics.
For further information please email Prof Crocombe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Applications, to include a CV and the names and addresses of two academic referees, should be sent to:
