Dissipative vortices are omnipresent in physical, chemical, and biological systems. Among those, e.g. hurricanes represent one of the most important examples of dissipative vortices in the atmospheric layer, while cardiac re-entry underly dangerous arrhythmias and fatal fibrillation.
Department of Computer Science, University of Liverpool, UK, offers
4 funded PhD positions for UK/EU students to start next academic year 2020/2021
For candidates with suitable qualifications, I will offer the following PhD projects:
- Optimal visualisation of cardiac re-entry in anatomically detailed models. (CS, Computer Graphics)
- Automatic conversion of CellML models into BeatBox modules. (CS)
- Anatomy induced dynamics of cardiac re-entry in MRI and micro-CT anatomy models. (CS, Computer Graphics, Computer Simulations, Applied Maths, Physics)
- Dynamics of dissipative vortices: response functions framework. (Applied Maths, Physics)
- Data analysis of hurricanes trajectories. (CS: Data Mining)
You can apply online. The deadline for this PhD application round is April 1, 2020. While applications will be possible until all positions are filled, your chances will be increased by applying before this deadline.
Whether you are eligible for the University of Liverpool scholarship, or have your own funding, if you have suitable qualifications and are interested in doing the above projects, please do not hesitate to contact me (ivb at liverpool dot ac dot uk) to discuss the projects.
