    We invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Professor Helen Byrne on an exciting new Cancer Research UK funded project, using mathematical and computational modelling to understand the impact of hypoxia dynamics on therapeutic responses in breast cancer. The position is available for 33 months and the postholder will be based here at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford.

    The successful candidate will join a successful multi-disciplinary team comprising of researchers at the Mathematical Institute and Department of Oncology, University of Oxford, and the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, with the ultimate aim of investigating how cycling hypoxia, or low oxygen levels, affects the growth and response of tumours to treatment in vitro. You will use mathematical and computational modelling techniques via the group's existing programming software, Microvessel Chaste, to simulate blood flow initially through artificial vessel networks, and later through biological vessel networks derived from photoacoustic images.

    Applicants will be expected to have, or be close to completing, a PhD in mathematics or a related discipline. You must have prior experience of developing and applying numerical methods to solve systems of partial differential equations (PDEs), and an ability to program in C++ or a similar language. Previous experience of the multiscale modelling of biological systems is desirable.

    Please direct informal enquiries to the Recruitment Co-ordinator using the email address below, quoting vacancy reference 146090.

    Please note that applicants will be selected for interview purely based on their ability to satisfy the selection criteria outlined in the attached job description. You will be required to upload a letter setting out how you meet the selection criteria, a curriculum vitae including full list of publications, a statement of research interests and the contact details of two referees as part of your online application (NOTE: Applicants are responsible for contacting their referees and making sure that their letters are received by the closing date).

    Only applications received before 12.00 noon on Friday 19 June 2020 can be considered. Interviews are anticipated to take place week commencing Monday 29 June 2020.

    PhD Program in "MODELING AND  ENGINEERING RISK AND COMPLEXITY" in the Scuola Superiore Meridionale  di Napoli.

    The overarching goal of the PhD program is to train a new generation 
    of highly qualified researchers and professionals, who will be able to 
    combine applied and theoretical expertise from a wide range of fields 
    to develop and apply new methods to study and manage complex systems, 
    to engineer resilient systems and to analyse and cope with risk and 
    cascading effects.

    The deadline for applications is June 30, 2020.

    The PhD program aims at attracting highly qualified international 
    students. It lasts 4 years and all successful candidates will get a 
    fellowship of 1,500 euros per month (net amount) for all 4 years. The 
    fellowship will be increased by a 50% for the period that they will 
    conduct their PhD abroad. In addition, each PhD student will have an 
    additional budget of 3,800 euros each year to cover participation into 
    conferences, summer schools etc.
