Postdoctoral Research Associate in Computational Cardiovascular Science Closing date: 03-Aug-2016
A full-time opportunity in Computational Cardiovascular Science has arisen in department. Reporting to Professor Blanca Rodriguez, you will be a member of the Computational Cardiovascular Science team, jointly supervised by Professor Blanca Rodriguez (Professor of Computational Medicine, in Computer Science) and Professor Vicente Grau (Professor of Biomedical Image Analysis in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering).
You will have responsibility for carrying out research on high performance computing simulations of the electromechanical activity of the heart with whole-ventricular models personalised using magnetic resonance imaging. The research will be conducted as part of the Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine funded by the European Commission, and you will conduct research as part of a collaboration between Department of Computer Science and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Oxford, the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre and University College London.
Your main responsibility will be to achieve the research goals and provide guidance to junior members of the research group including research assistants and students. We will encourage career development in line with your interests, and the experience available in the group, for example, to secure personal fellowship funding.
You should have a PhD (or be very close to completion) in biomedical engineering, computer science or a related discipline, and experience of high performance computing. Experience of building image-based anatomical models, and computational cardiac mechanics, electrophysiology and/or electromechanics is highly desirable.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 3 August 2016. Interviews are expected to be held in the week commencing 5 September 2016.
