Biomedical Engineering Research Associate at King’s College London

King’s College London is seeking a Research Associate on a 36 month fixed term contract. The post is part of a British Heart Foundation Project grant held at King’s College London (KCL).
This project aims to combine anatomical and functional measurements from controls and patients suffering from atrial fibrillation within biophysical personalized computational models to investigate the interplay between anatomy and electrophysiology in underpinning patients disease and their response to treatment. This interdisciplinary project will require working directly with clinicians, MRI specialists, computer scientists and image processors to both interpret and optimize clinical measurement protocols using computational models. The project will involve image processing, signal processing, model development, cardiac electrophysiology simulation and analysis.

The post holder will work in the Department of Biomedical Engineering (part of the Division of Imaging Sciences and Biomedical Engineering), in the School of Medicine at KCL, part of King’s Health Partners. A primary area of research focus within the Biomedical Engineering Department is the translation of personalized computational cardiac electrophysiology modeling into clinical applications. It is situated on the 3rd and 4th floors of the Lambeth Wing, St Thomas’ Hospital, one of the leading research hospitals in the UK. The Division comprises a unique group of clinicians, physicists, mathematicians, chemists, biologists and engineers who collaboratively focus on translational research.

The post holder should have a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, Computational Biology/Physiology or related discipline. Previous experience in computational modelling, numerical solution of ordinary differential equation or partial differential equations, parameter estimation, high performance computing and cardiac research would be a distinct advantage. In addition, the candidate should have expertise in Linux systems and programming skills (ideally Matlab, C++ or Fortran), and show an aptitude for independent learning and project management.

Salary will be between £31,331 – £34,223 per annum, plus £2,323 per annum London Allowance.

Please see the Application Pack with explanatory notes including application procedure and further particulars. All correspondence should clearly state the job title and reference number R6/MRE/1017/13-SC.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 13 November 2013. Interviews will be held in the week following closure.
