Research Associate (Fixed Term)

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) to work on computational modelling of prosthetic heart valves with Dr Shelly Singh-Gryzbon in the department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. Funding is available for a 1 year fixed-termed post in the first instance.

The aim of the project is to develop and validate computational models and simulations for assessing clinical outcomes of aortic valve replacement procedures. Research will be focused on valve thrombosis, coronary obstruction, and structural implications of valve-in-valve procedures.

Necessary qualifications include a PhD in a relevant subject area. Candidates must demonstrate experience in computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA), and/or fluid-structure interactions (FSI) for problems involving large deformations. Experience with experimental fluid and structural mechanics or medical device design would also be an advantage.

Key responsibilities include developing and validation computational models and simulations, exercising independent responsibility for project development of research outcomes, writing up work for presentation and publication, collaborating with academic, clinical and industrial partners, assisting in the supervision of student research projects, and mentoring graduate students.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance.
