The Department of Computer Science seeks to employ a two Research Associates in Computational Cardiovascular Science under the supervision of Associate Prof Alfonso Bueno-Orovio.

The overall project aims to develop computer models and perform high performance computing studies of the human heart to better understand structural heart disease, and in particular the deadly inherited heart condition known as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM).

The work involves close international, multi-institutional and cross- disciplinary collaborations involving world-experts in clinical and experimental cardiac electrophysiology. Two research positions are available to work within the Computational Cardiovascular Science team. The positions are available for an initial period of two years to start as soon as possible from 01 May 2024.

The successful candidate will be located in the Department of Computer Science. The appointees will be expected to contribute to the development of cardiac digital twin models of human ventricular electro-mechanics in HCM, based on multi-modality magnetic resonance and electrocardiographic studies from patients; and to conduct scientific computing studies using the personalised models to investigate risk stratification and tailoring of pharmacological therapy in HCM.

Candidates would ideally hold a relevant PhD/DPhil (or close to completion) in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science or Mathematical Biology. Having an experience of working in multiscale cardiac modelling and experience of C, FORTRAN or equivalent general-purpose programming language(s) are within the essential criteria.

Candidates will be considered with strong potential and commitment who are seeking an opportunity for early research experience, for which an initial appointment would be at Grade 6 with the responsibilities adjusted accordingly. This would be discussed with applicants at interview/appointment where appropriate.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Monday, 15 April 2024. Interviews are expected to be held in late April or early May.
