Working in the Lab
We are always interested in meeting people who are enthusiastic about undertaking high quality research and addressing new challenges in biomechanics and related fields.
Current appointments are advertised on this page and at jobs.rvc.ac.uk
We offer one or two vacation studentships for undergraduates who are interested in gaining work experience in the lab. These usually last for 3-6 months.
If you would like to be involved in or contribute to our research, please send a brief CV and letter of interest to one of the faculty members listed on our People page.
Get Involved in Regular Events in The Structure & Motion Laboratory
The Structure & Motion Lab is a multi-disciplinary, diverse and stimulating place to work. Whatever your level or scientific background, you can expect to learn and develop as a research scientist here. We run a regular programme of activities to share and communicate many aspects of our work within the group, ranging from our weekly 'Science Monday' internal seminars, to Journal Clubs and Research Skills Workshops. These activities are led by members of the lab or visiting scientists.
PhD Studentships in The Structure & Motion Laboratory
Our PhD students come from a range of science backgrounds usually with a 2:1 or better degree in a mathematical / engineering / zoological or related subject. Please see The RVC's Postgraduate pages for details on how to apply. All of our PhD studentships are also advertised on www.findaphd.com.
Work experience placements
One or two work experience placements are available to Sixth Form students interested in a career in science. Please direct your enquiry to James Cannon, Widening Participation Development Officer, email@example.com.
To find out what work experience in this lab is like, read the reports of the students from this year and last year:
Please note that the Structure & Motion Laboratory is not a suitable placement if you are interested in a career as a veterinary surgeon.
Further vacancies will be listed here as they arise.
Biomechanics and Imaging Technician (3 years; 1 July 2013 start, EU/EEA applicants only)
More opportunities expected soon.
We run regular training sessions open to the whole lab, campus or even outside members. Watch here for more information
Prof. John R. Hutchinson's team is running a special workshop on musculoskeletal modelling methods in SIMM/OpenSim packages, 18-19 June 2013. Spots for 10 attendees are open- get more details here!
Structure & Motion Trac
The Structure & Motion Laboratory has its own Wiki/Trac which is a helpful tool and repository for all manner of information useful to those working within the Lab. It is a "live document" with content regularly added and updated and is accessible to personnel via normal log in details and password.
