Position: PhD Studentship, Mathematics in Healthcare
Institution: University College London
Department: Mathematics - Clinical Operation Research Unit
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the UCL Department of Mathematics starting in September 2022 or as soon as possible thereafter. This studentship is part of a large, EPSRC-funded multidisciplinary programme of work called OncoEng (oncoeng.org) that will combine imaging, mathematical modelling, mechanical characterisation, computation and clinical data to improve patient outcomes in the treatment of metastatic bone disease (MBD). Prof Nick Ovenden (Mathematics) and others at UCL are working with the University of Leeds, Imperial College London as well as multiple hospital and industry partners on this exciting initiative. The PhD project will focus on using mathematical modelling to predict the fracture risk of spine vertebra affected by MBD under various loading conditions generated by typical daily activities. The project will use data generated by our research partners from a range of experimental models (e.g. in vitro, in vivo) and characterisation techniques (e.g. imaging) which will inform the model development and parameters. The student will have the opportunity to get involved with various modelling aspects and will be encouraged to work and collaborate within the broader team
Requirements: Applicants should possess a good honours degree (1st Class) in Mathematics, or an equivalent qualification from other countries, as well as the following essential skills: Good knowledge of and experience in mechanics, mathematical modelling and partial differential equations; Experience in and an aptitude for programming using at least one of the following languages: Python, Matlab, C++; Knowledge of finite element methods and/or solid mechanics is desirable, but not essential

Applicants will be considered for the following sources of PhD funding: · EPSRC Studentships · Teaching Assistantships Details of each type of funding can be found below. Successful candidates will be admitted to the MPhil/PhD programme in Mathematics. Studentship Description EPSRC funding will cover tuition fees at Home rate plus a stipend of approximately £17,983* per annum based on the standard rate. This will be tenable for four years. Teaching Assistantships last for four years and will cover tuition fees at Home rate plus a provisional stipend of approximately £17,983* per annum based on the standard EPSRC rate. Teaching Assistants will spend up to 25% of their time teaching and marking, and the rest devoted to research towards their PhD. *Please note: Stipend amount is approximate. UCL Stipends are paid at the UKRI standard rate which will be confirmed later in 2022.
