Postdoctoral Fellow - Computer Modeling in Biology, University of Calgary, Canada

A postdoctoral fellow is required to develop a computer model of the gastrointestinal tract. The GI tract is a complex physiologically system, with a network of oscillators driving a population of muscles. The project will require the development of ionically-based representations of GI cell types, and integrating them into a anatomically realistic framework. The PDF will interact extensively with computational scientists in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and biological researchers in the Department of Physiology.

The candidate must possess a PhD in Engineering, Physics, Biology, or Medicine. Experience with computer modeling, numerical methods, or biophysics is highly preferred.
