Post-doctoral research assistant in computational modelling of
biological systems (2 year FTA)
Job number: SCH00213
Full time, Fixed Term Contract (expected dates 01/08/2013 - 31/07/2015)
Grade 6 £24,049 - £29,541
Closing date: 19 May 2013
The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council-funded project
Improving Patient Outcome by Integrating the Generic with the
Personal, aims to develop a framework for mathematical and
computational modelling which can capture the synergistic,
spatio-temporal nature of an individual person and to use this to
recommend and monitor healthcare interventions. The specific disease
targetted in this project is glioma, or brain cancer. The PDRA will be
part of a multidisciplinary team to develop new
mathematical/computational models which are fast, accurate and
The PDRA at Stirling will model the dynamic aspects of cell response
in cancer progress and treatment. An individual-based modelling
approach will be used (specifically, process algebra).
