Posted: 24th April 2008



euHeart: Biophysically-based modelling for the treatment of cardiovascular disease

Grade 7 Post-Doctoral Research Scientist   

The Computing Laboratory has two vacancies for Post-Doctoral Research Scientists as part of an EU funded research project "euHeart" which runs from the 1st of June 2008 till the 1st of June 2011. The work will focused on the development of computational fluid-mechanical models of the heart. This work will involve the application of multi-scale modelling techniques and numerical methods to produce validated and personalised models from unique data collected by our collaborators. This exciting project will provide the successful candidate with the opportunity to interact with members of the partner sites in France, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, and the UK . As such the role will form a central part of a multi-disciplinary collaboration between academic, clinical and industrial partners working across modelling, imaging and device design.
