Research Associate in Patient Specific Cardiac Modelling
King's College London
Note: Feel free to approach me or message me to talk more informally about this position. If you have different expertise/skills, happy to chat about it and try to find a common ground.

Job description

Physics-based computational models of the heart are increasingly being used to integrate, interpret, and analyse clinical data to inform patient diagnosis and therapy delivery. At King’s College London and St Thomas’ Hospital we create computational models of patients' cardiovascular system, electrophysiology and mechanics directly from patient data. These classical modelling approaches are complemented with machine learning, artificial intelligence and computational statistics approaches to improve and accelerate model calibration and predictions. 
As part of a European Research Council project, we will create patient specific models as part of a prospective clinical trial to test if simulations can be used to predict optimal therapy and patient outcomes.

 

Applicants will work across the model creation workflow from raw clinical and diagnostic data through to large scale simulations on national high-performance computing resources. The applicant will work with an interdisciplinary team of mathematicians, software developers, engineers, and cardiologists. The project would suit candidates who are passionate about translating cardiac modelling and simulation into clinical applications.
