King's College London has opened a 2-year position in computational cardiac modelling.
The main objective of this role is to use an in-silico approach to improving the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Advanced workflows will be created to analyse comprehensive clinical imaging and electrical data to facilitate the construction of biophysically-detailed, validated computational cardiac models.
Models will be used: 1) to test and optimise the design of novel electrotherapy electrode configurations and protocols; and, 2) to design state-of-the-art in-procedure computational tools to optimise catheter ablation therapy.
This work will be performed in close collaboration with the clinical researchers at KCL and St Thomas’ Hospital.
The post will use the computational and clinical electrophysiological infrastructure provided by the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences and will be based at St Thomas’ Hospital.
The successful candidate will be expected to work under the supervision of Dr Martin Bishop at KCL. In addition, this project will involve working directly with cardiologists and other collaborators at with KCL and the Medical University of Graz.
The role forms an important part of an on-going portfolio of research involving the development and use of detailed computational models to understand arrhythmia and antiarrhythmia therapies. The profile of this specific position is focused on the application of cardiac modeling and clinical signal processing to create detailed biophysically-based computational models in order to further develop and validate novel anti-arrhythmia electrotherapy electrode designs and invasive ablation procedures. It may be possible to tailor the specifics of the role to suit an individual candidate’s relevant background, expertise and interests.
