[Job Description] Three full-time (or part-time) research assistants wanted to engage in computational modelling of cerebral blood flow and metabolism. The MOST-funded project will run for the next three years and will develop novel models of the brain’s behaviour over short and long-time scales with a view to understanding better how interventions, such as sleep and exercise, affect the development of brain diseases such as stroke and dementia. There are many opportunities for collaborative research with experimental and clinical research groups. For further information, please contact Professor Stephen Payne.

The duties of the role include:

1. Engaging in original research relating to the computational modelling of cerebral blood flow and metabolism;
2. Writing papers for publication and presenting work at conferences;
3. Assisting in supervising research students as appropriate;
4. Supporting the IT requirements of the research group through the maintenance of both hardware and software;
5. Other routine duties that arise from time to time.

[Job Experiences Required]

1. Experience of performing original research;
2. Experience of publishing original research in journal/conference papers;
3. Experience of programming languages (such as Matlab, C, Fortran, Python).


1. A high standard of English language skills, both written and oral.
2. At least a master’s degree in a subject related to the work of the group.
3. Previous experience in original research in the area of physiological modelling or a related area.
