Research Fellow in Ophthalmology at University College London (UCL)

There is a new opening for a Research Fellow at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology.

A strong candidate will hold a PhD or equivalent and have substantial experience in the development and coding of computational models, ideally in the context of biological systems. The existing code base to be developed is in Matlab and experience of Matlab is beneficial. It is likely that, moving forward, code will be developed in Julia. Experience of Python and / or Julia would thus be an advantage as would understanding of any relevant area of biology or physics. This would include reaction kinetics, thermodynamics, diffusion, metabolism and metabolic networks, etc. It is also expected that the post-holder will have a solid foundation in mathematics. Whilst an appreciation of the eye and vision would be helpful it is by no means required.

The position is funded in the first instance until April 2023, with the possibility to move afterwards to a permanent position as Research Software Engineer within the new Centre for Advanced Research Computing, subject to satisfactory performance evaluation.
