Job description

Job summary

Applications are invited for the position of Research Associate, to work in the Cardiac Electrophysiology and ElectroCardioMaths Groups at NHLI.

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist (with either a biological of computational background) to join a collaborative team of clinicians, basic scientists, and physical scientists working on cardiac electrophysiology. The present post is for a researcher on a British Heart Foundation Programme Grant awarded to Professor Nicholas Peters and Dr Fu Siong Ng.

You will work as part of the Cardiac Electrophysiology and Electrocardiomaths Research Groups at Imperial College London, which are multi-disciplinary teams that focus on investigating mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias and developing novel treatments.

Duties and responsibilities

You will carry out work to investigate the role of the myocardial electroarchitecture, i.e. gap junction coupling, fibrosis, tissue geometry, on myocardial fibrillatory dynamics. There are currently a number of projects on myocardial fibrillation, including work on cell culture models, whole heart models and computational models of myocardial fibrillation. There is also work on using machine learning on electrophysiological signals to classify mechanisms of fibrillation.

Depending on your background and expertise, you will be allocated a project most suited to your skills – this may be performing benchtop experiments, developing computational models or optimising machine learning algorithms.

You will work closely with the clinicians, biologist, bioengineers and physical scientists in the multi-disciplinary group.

Essential requirements

You should have a PhD or an equivalent qualification, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience, in a relevant biological or computational discipline. A background in cardiac electrophysiology research and previous experience in cell culture, cardiac optical mapping, electrical mapping, computational modelling or machine learning is desirable. You should also have a collaborative approach to research as this role requires working with other groups both within and outside the department. 

Further information

Please note this is a re-advertisement; previous applicants need not apply.

This role is full-time and fixed-term until 30 April 2021.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £35,477 - £38,566 per annum.

Should you require any further details on the role please contact: Dr Fu Siong Ng (email: f.ng@imperial.ac.uk).

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA),which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
