PhD studentship in Virtual Human Cardiovascular Modelling & Simulation

University College London

First advertised here 11 August 2020

UCL and the Centre for Computational Science (CCS) are offering a fully-funded studentship to a highly motivated and talented candidate to work on the development and deployment of medical and clinical applications of the lattice-Boltzmann method for blood flow. The studentship will cover tuition fees at the standard home student rate together with a maintenance stipend of £17,285 (tax free) per annum for three years from September 2020.

The post-holder will work primarily on scientific applications of HemeLB (, a flexible open-source lattice-Boltzmann code for the simulation of blood flow, at the scale of the entire human body, in physiology and medicine. The post-holder will be expected to use state of the art supercomputers and contribute to code optimisation on emerging exascale platforms.

The prospective student will join a multidisciplinary group at UCL producing research in wide-ranging applications, from biomedicine to advanced materials and quantum computing, and leading a number of large European and national projects giving exceptional opportunities for expanding your network and experience.
