Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Parallel Computing for Partial Differential Equations in Biomechanics (Ref: BHA0266-2)

Brunel University, London, England
Job Description: 

Post-doctoral research fellow sought to work for three years on an EPSRC funded project entitled Acoustic Localisation of Coronary Artery Stenosis. This project is concerned with mathematical modelling and development of novel software for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease. It is a joint effort with biomedical engineers at Queen Mary University of London and Barts & The Royal London NHS Trust (Whitechapel), and with mathematicians at North Carolina State University.

Your main duty will be the development and implementation of time domain finite element methods in a multi-core high performance computing environment. Essential requirements for this post are:

A PhD in an area involving the finite element approximation of time dependent partial differential equations.

Practical and theoretical expertise in the implementation of three dimensional finite element approximations (and use of mesh generation software) in a high performance computing environment.

In addition, it will be a considerable advantage if you can demonstrate:

An ability and willingness to work as part of an international, interdisciplinary and multi-site team involving experimental scientists as well as other mathematicians.

An enthusiasm for matching theoretical results with experimental ones in an applied and results-driven project.

Excellent written and oral communication skills.

The web page gives more details on this research project and informal enquiries for clarifying the nature of the vacancy can be made by email to either Simon Shaw ( ) or to John Whiteman ( ).

Interviews to be held in July 2010
