Research Associated appointed

Update: We have recruited the Research Associate details to follow.

The project is funded by British Heart Foundation (mathematical modelling right ventricular function in repaired Tetralogy of Fallot for predicting outcome and impact of pulmonary valve replacement) working with Hao Gao, Mark Danton, Colin Berry, Xiaoyu Luo, Nick Hill, and Dirk Husmeier.

This project will develop new computational models based on patient scan data using cutting-edge mathematical and statistical approaches to derive parameters of heart function of patients with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot, aiming to provide valuable insights into the cardiac condition for doctors and patients. Specifically, the job requires expert knowledge in nonlinear mechanics and computational modelling of the heart. 

A background in soft tissue mechanics and cardiovascular system would be advantageous. We are seeking a candidate with a background in applied mathematics or continuum mechanics or a closely related discipline. The successful candidate 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.

This position is full time and with funding for 36 months.
