New 4-year PDRA position - deadline 11th July

We are offering a unique opportunity for a Research Associate to make a leading contribution to the Centre for Future Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Planning.  The vision of the Centre is to develop novel and robust mathematical and statistical methodologies, supported by large clinical data sets, to create computational tools for optimisation of cardiovascular procedures. Based within the James Watt School of Engineering, you will work closely with colleagues from Mathematics & Statistics, Cardiovascular & Metabolic Health and Politecnico di Torino, as well as several leading international clinical centres and medical devices/imaging companies. 

You will work on the development of a range of mathematical models and their numerical solution, covering areas including patient geometry reconstruction, fluid-structure interaction, soft tissue mechanics, growth and remodelling and multiphysics modelling. You should have a PhD, or have equivalent experience, in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Computational Engineering, or a related discipline. You should have theoretical and practical knowledge of building multiphysics mathematical models and numerically solving them. Experience in patient geometry reconstruction from medical imaging, soft tissue mechanics and fluid-structure interaction modelling would be desirable.

You will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project, as opportunities allow.
