Closing date for applications: 12.00 pm - 1 May 2019
University of Oxford has a vacancy for two full-time Senior Research Associates to work within the Computational Cardiovascular Science Team until 31 January 2024. Both junior and senior postdoctoral scientists are welcome to apply.
Under the supervision of Professor Blanca Rodriguez (Professor of Computational Medicine), you will have responsibility for carrying out impactful research at the interface of cardiology and computational modelling and simulation science, within a research programme on “Human in silico clinical trials in post-myocardial infarction”.
You will work in close collaboration with our clinical and industrial partners, and other members of the team. University of Oxford will support your career development, through supporting your scientific work, and also through attendance to conferences, student supervision and supporting applications for personal fellowships, as appropriate.
You will hold a PhD (or be close to completion if appointed at Grade 7) in computer science, engineering, physics, mathematics or related discipline. You will possess either knowledge or a strong interest in learning cardiac modelling and simulation, and knowledge/experience in one or more of these areas: analysis of cardiac magnetic resonance images or the electrocardiogram, high performance computing, machine learning and cardiac electromechanical modelling and simulation. Experience of actively developing research outputs such as publications is required.
Whilst the roles are Grade 8 positions, University of Oxford would be willing to consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 7 (£32,236 - £39,609 p.a.) with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly (for Grade 7, you would be expected to hold a doctoral degree in computer science or be close to completion). This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 1 May 2019. Interviews are expected to be held in mid-May 2019.
