Research Assistant in the Effects of Loading and Strain-Rate on Biological Systems
Held in the Institute of Shock Physics (ISP), Imperial College London, and jointly supervised by Dr WG Proud and Professor Sara Rankin (Department of Medicine), the post will build on recent progress in the development of loading platforms, investigating the relationship between blast wave produced by a shock tube and the range of loading techniques. This project is firmly cross-disciplinary. More information and details on the application process can be found here.
A 3.5-year, fully-funded PhD Studentship (2018-2019)
Deadline: 24 June 2018
The Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies (CBIS) at Imperial College London welcomes applications for an October 2018 start from a high-calibre prospective PhD student. With access to world-leading academics, facilities and networks, students benefit from a highly stimulating environment where they undertake a range of additional training and development opportunities as part of being part of a large CBIS PhD cohort. Students also have opportunities to share their research through a number of media, including conference attendance and public engagement and outreach activities. Comprised of multidisciplinary collaborations between military medical officers and civilian engineers and scientists that address difficult research issues with a clinically-led approach, CBIS is housed within the Department of Bioengineering, which attracts outstanding students and researchers from around the world.
We have a range of opportunities to allow students to participate in real research within Blast including summer studentships and undergraduate/MSc project opportunities. Our projects are eligible for Undergraduate Final Year Student group projects and MSc Projects.

Scientific Study: Hearing damage from blast exposure
Dr Tobias Reichenbach's CBIS-based research group are undertaking an investigation of the hearing damage that results from blast exposure and our study will contribute to better aid and compensation for war veterans with hearing impairments. We have recently examined those exposed to blast that have hearing impairment and now seek healthy volunteers without blast exposure for a control study.
You will have your travel expenses (public transportation where possible and taxi) reimbursed, and will receive an additional compensation of £20 for each testing session. We will ask you to come for two testing sessions, which we can schedule for one day or for two different days, as is convenient for you. All study results, and in particular all of your results, will remain completely anonymous. For further details, see the study's Healthy Controls.
If you are interested in participating, please email Dr. Tobias Reichenbach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are Associate roles, where the post-holder will work closely with members from the Centre for Blast Injury Studies but will not be based in the Centre for Blast Injury Studies.
