Research Fellow in Virtual Human Cardiovascular Modelling & Simulation


VHcardiovascular

Principal Investigator: Professor P. V. Coveney

Start date: immediate

Salary (inclusive of London allowance): £35,965 to £43,470 per annum

The successful candidate will join a very active inter-disciplinary group in the Centre for Computational Science, and will perform modelling and simulation of the cardiovascular system at the whole human scale.

The post-holder will work on scientific applications of HemeLB, a flexible open source lattice-Boltzmann code for the simulation of human vasculature, and the Alya Red code for human heart modelling, at the scale of the entire human body. The coupled code, running on powerful supercomputers, will be used by the post-holder for research in physiology and medicine within the Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine. In addition to the development and application of the code, including verification, validation and uncertainty quantification, the post-holder will facilitate uptake of these software within the wider computational biomedicine community.

The post is funded by the European Commission and is available immediately, for a period of 24 months initially.
