An opportunity exists for a short term post in developing and testing a new smart endotracheal tube (ETT) for monitoring at the interface between the ETT cuff and trachea. The ETT incorporates optical fibre sensors and measures interface pressure and perfusion. The aim is to reduce tracheal injury and ventilator associated pneumonia. This project is funded by the medical research council and pre-clinical studies are currently being conducted.
We are looking for a research engineer, whose expertise lies in biomedical engineering and fibre optic instrumentation.
We require you to be able to carry out duties to the highest standard and to achieve our project goals this work will involve one or more of:
- Fibre Optics Sensor-based instrumentation construction and calibration
- Integration of fibre optic sensors into catheters such as ETTs
- Data capture and signal processing
We are looking for enthusiastic, confident and organised engineering researchers who have a degree or equivalent in Fibre Optic Sensing, Biomedical Engineering Electrical & Electronics Engineering or relevant subject area.
This post is available immediately and on a fixed-term basis until 31st March 2024. The role is available on a part time basis (20 hours per week). The successful candidate must be in post by 31st December 2023
If it sounds like you would be a good fit, we look forward to hearing from you.
