You will work in close collaboration with our clinical and industrial partners, and other members of the team. We 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 in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or related discipline. You will possess either knowledge or a strong interest in learning cardiac multiscale modelling and simulation, and knowledge/experience in one or more of these areas: image-based modelling, high performance computing, machine learning and cardiac electromechanical modelling and simulation. Experience of actively developing research outputs such as publications is required.

We can consider candidates with potential but less experience who are seeking a development opportunity, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 7 (£33,309 - £40,927 p.a.) with responsibilities adjusted accordingly.
