Postdoctoral position available for immediate start

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Developmental Biomechanics Group. The research project is focussed on cartilage development and healing, and will be in close collaboration with Prof Pieter Brama from the UCD School of Veterinary Medicine. Experimental (wet lab, e.g., histology) experience (ideally) with musculoskeletal tissues is essential for the position. The funding available is for nine months, but every effort will be made to extend the duration of the position. If interested in the opportunity, or for further enquiries, please email Prof Nowlan your CV in the first instance. 


We are keen to welcome excellent prospective postdoctoral researchers and PhD students to the Developmental Biomechanics group. A range of competitive funding opportunities for talented early career researchers are available at UCD, including schemes aimed at PhD students (IRC, application deadline October 2022 for September 2023 start) and at postdoctoral researchers (IRCMarie Skłodowska-Curie, both annual calls).

If you are interested in applying for a studentship or fellowship, please email Prof Nowlan in the first instance with your CV.
