Postdoctoral Research Associate in Computational Cardiovascular Science
Computer Science - Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford
We have an opening for full time Research Associates to work within the
Computational Cardiovascular Science Team, until January 2024 with a potential
extension. We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to conduct research
within the Computational Cardiovascular Science Team (www. cs.ox.ac.uk/ccs).
We welcome applications both from junior and senior postdoctoral scientists.
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. 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. This
would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.
Applicants will be required to upload a supporting statement, setting out how
