PhD position in computational biomechanics at University of Glasgow

I am looking for motivated students to join my research group and work towards their PhD in the area of computational biomechanics.

Description

Almost 30% of all deaths globally are related to cardiovascular diseases, and most of these are related to changes in the stiffness of tissues making up the system. There is an urgent need for new computational tools that can help detect, understand, and treat these diseases. There are three specific projects available under his broad topic:

Postdoc position in soft tissue mechanics, Swansea University UK

A postdoctoral researcher position is open in my group to work on multi-scale and inverse models for soft tissues and heart valve mechanics. The aim of this research will be to develop models that predict aortic stenosis - the most common valve-related disease that affects 5% of the elderly. The project is funded through the research council of UK, and will provide opportunities of working closely with clinicians and experimental collaborators.
