Vacancy: Research Associate to work on micro-vessel flow phantoms for ultrasound therapy at University of Strathclyde

Research Associate post available to work on developing 3D printed hydrogel flow systems for medical ultrasound research

This post will contribute to a multidisciplinary team using real anatomical data to replicate micro vessel structures in materials that are both mechanically and acoustically similar to tissue. The researcher will be expected to:

  • Test, develop and optimise 3D printing protocols to produce vessel-like structures using hydrogel materials
  • Incorporate the vessel-like structures they print within fluid flow systems to mimic real-life flow conditions in micro vessels
  • Work with acoustic engineers to assess hydrogel acoustic properties and incorporate acoustic excitation of the fluid contained within the micro vessels
  • Work with cell biologists to incorporate additive cell culture within the micro vessel mimics for future experimental investigation
