Postdoctoral Research Assistant in AirPROM

Applications for this vacancy closed on 6 November 2015 at 12:00PM
The Department of Computer Science at the University of Oxford is currently
seeking a postdoctoral research assistant to join the Computational Biology
Group.



This post is funded by the EU (on the project AirPROM, www.airprom.eu) and is
a fixed-term position until 28 February 2016 (with a potential 4 month
extension). This project involves the development of computational models of
the respiratory system with application to extensive clinical data
investigating structure-function relationships in asthmatic patients.



In particular, you will work on building a multi-scale model – linking tissue
level properties to a whole organ model – to simulate an asthma attack in
patients pre- and post-bronchial thermoplasty treatment. You will work within
a multi-disciplinary team in collaboration with leading experimentalists,
clinicians and mathematical modellers at the Universities of Nottingham,
Sheffield, and Leicester - plus many others across Europe. Within Oxford, the
project will be supervised by a diverse team consisting of Drs Kelly Burrowes,
Rafel Bordas, David Kay, and Vicente Grau.



You must have (or be close to obtaining) a PhD in a relevant branch of applied
mathematics, biomedical engineering, or a similar discipline and an enthusiasm
for multidisciplinary research. A strong analytical and computational
background and solid programming skills are essential. Previous experience in
modelling biological systems would be an advantage, but is not essential.



The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 6 November 2015. Interviews
are expected to be held in the week commencing 9 November 2015.
