Research Associate/Fellow position, Long-term anatomical fluid dynamics for new univentricular hearts palliation
We are offering an exciting opportunity for a researcher, whose expertise lies in computational partial differential equations, to
work on a multidisciplinary MRC-funded project aimed at modelling the circulation of blood in individuals with univentricular hearts.
The project is a Newton Fund UK-Malaysia partnership, comprising a team of mathematicians, surgeons and engineers, aimed at improving the long-term prognosis of children with univentricular circulation by establishing a new simulation-assisted treatment protocol. State-of-the-art multi-scale numerical modelling techniques based on polytopic finite elements will be developed and combined with artificial intelligence techniques to produce an open-source computational tool for the analysis of surgical procedures and their impact on later-life conditions.
The successful applicant will be based in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, joining the local project's team of Dr Andrea Cangiani, Prof Antonio Corno, Dr Edward Hall, and Prof Paul Houston and in close collaboration with the University of Leicester team of Dr Aldo Rona and Ivan Tyukin.
The preferred candidate will have a PhD in mathematics or closely related subject, expert knowledge of finite element methods for PDEs, and strong background in programming. Experience with biomedical modelling, artificial intelligence, adaptive mesh refinement, and parallel programming is desirable.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Andrea.Cangiani@nottingham.ac.uk or Paul.Houston@nottingham.ac.uk
Fixed-term contract until 30 December 2021 with a minimum salary of 30,942 GBP per annum with relevant PhD.
