Lecturer – Bio-Inspired Engineering

The School of Mechanical, Materials and Mechatronic Engineering is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic lecturer with expertise in the biomechatronics or biomechanical branch of bio-inspired engineering. The successful candidate will teach at all levels of the curriculum including the team-taught introductory engineering subjects and specialised subjects on bio-inspired actuators and sensors, bio-inspired manufacturing, bio-inspired mechanical design, bio-inspired modelling, and similar, depending on the expertise of a successful candidate. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a vigorous research program that complements and enhances the extensive interdisciplinary engineering network at the University of Wollongong, particularly in the areas of soft robotics, bio-inspired robotics, advanced smart materials and structures and their applications, bionics, and innovative fabrication methodologies including nano/micro/macro manufacturing.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
