Position: Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Mathematical Modelling
Institution: University of Oxford
Department: Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics
Location: Oxford, Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
Duties: This position is for a central role in an interdisciplinary research team that aims to apply new technologies from the physical sciences to improve the diagnosis and management of patients in intensive care and with particular diseases of the airways. At the heart of this work is a computational model of the physiology of the patient. The parameters of the model require identification from data collected by physicians using the novel sensors from the physical sciences. It is the recovered values for these parameters that we hope will ultimately guide therapy. Thus, the work is integral to the whole programme
Requirements: The successful applicant will hold a higher degree in the sciences, and this will most likely be in the physical sciences or applied mathematics. It is important that the applicant can develop a genuine interest in gaining understanding of physiological processes relating to disease in the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, if not already experienced in this area. The applicant must already possess a strong mathematical and computational background with excellent programming abilities in MATLAB and in C++
   
Text: Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Mathematical Modelling Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, Oxford Grade 7: £31,604 - £38,833 p.a. Applicants are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Mathematical Modelling. This position is for a central role in an interdisciplinary research team that aims to apply new technologies from the physical sciences to improve the diagnosis and management of patients in intensive care and with particular diseases of the airways. At the heart of this work is a computational model of the physiology of the patient. The parameters of the model require identification from data collected by physicians using the novel sensors from the physical sciences. It is the recovered values for these parameters that we hope will ultimately guide therapy. Thus, the work is integral to the whole programme. The funds supporting this research project are provided by National Institute for Health Research through the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre. We are seeking an individual to lead the further development of the computational model of human physiology together with the algorithms required to identify the model parameters from datasets gathered on patients. The hope is that these parameter values will ultimately be used to guide therapy. The duties of the successful individual will include the supervision and support of graduate students and postdoctoral workers who are involved in either using or further developing this code. The individual will need to communicate effectively with both the team members involved in the sensor development process and with the clinicians involved in the various clinical studies using the device. We would expect the successful applicant to spend some time in the clinical environment so as to understand better the applications of the model. The applicant would need to spend time developing and managing their own academic understanding of the relevant physiology and to be involved in the teaching of graduate students, and other project students, who are undertaking projects using the technologies. The successful applicant will hold a higher degree in the sciences, and this will most likely be in the physical sciences or applied mathematics. It is important that the applicant can develop a genuine interest in gaining understanding of physiological processes relating to disease in the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, if not already experienced in this area. The applicant must already possess a strong mathematical and computational background with excellent programming abilities in MATLAB and in C++. This position is based in the Sherrington Building, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PT. The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 30 May 2018. Interviews are expected to be held week commencing 4 May 2018.
