The MSk Lab is a fast growing research group with a high level of productivity and a wide range of research initiatives and teaching responsibilities within Imperial College London and the NHS Trust.  The successful applicants will build on the reputation and research strategy of the MSk Lab, as a world leading centre of excellence for Orthopaedic research.  
The successful candidates will join a program of translational research to improve outcomes for patients undergoing surgical treatment of musculo-skeletal disease through the transfer of technology into clinical practice.

The appointee will be expected to have a record in such activities. 

Teaching and research are considered an integral part of the post. The post will involve the usual administrative duties associated with a busy academic and research-active environment and the appointee will be expected to enhance the academic standing of the Department of Surgery and Cancer.
