We invite applications for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher Fellowship, tenable for 3 years at Oxford University, to start before 1/2/18. The MSC-ESR Fellow will work with Prof Blanca Rodriguez on Personalised In-Silico Cardiology (PIC), within the Computational Cardiovascular Science team (www.cs.ox.ac.uk/ccs) to investigate why and how medicines cause cardiotoxicity in healthy people and in people with cardiac disease. You will aim to improve our understanding and prediction of cardiotoxicity, which is of huge interest for society, industry and regulatory bodies. For more information of the PIC-project see: picnet.eu.

The fellowship is offered in conjunction with a PhD position at the University of Oxford, and will be subject to the fellow satisfying the University’s admissions requirements for PhD study.
