PhD studentship in Virtual Human Cardiovascular Modelling & Simulation

UCL Chemistry Department is offering a fully funded studentship for three years to a highly motivated candidate to start in March 2021. The project will involve a collaboration with CBK Sci Con and is co-funded by them. The student will work on scientific applications of HemeLB, a flexible open source lattice-Boltzmann code for the simulation of human vasculature, and the Alya Red code for human heart modelling, at the scale of the entire human body. The coupled code, running on powerful supercomputers, will be used by the post-holder for research in physiology and medicine within the Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine. In addition to the development and application of the code, including verification, validation and uncertainty quantification, the student will facilitate uptake of these software within the wider computational biomedicine community.
