Postdoctoral Position in Computational Cardiac Dynamics


The Center for Nonlinear Science at Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for the Joseph Ford Postdoctoral Fellowship.


The Fellow will become a key player in the NSF-funded collaboration between Georgia Institute of Technology (Roman Grigoriev, Flavio Fenton, and Predrag Cvitanović), Rochester Institute of Technology (Elizabeth Cherry), and Max Planck Institute (Stefan Luther) which brings together experts in nonlinear dynamics and cardiac electrophysiology. The research focus will be on the theoretical and computational modeling of the dynamics of cardiac tissue with the goal to better understand arrhythmic behaviors and learn how they can be terminated. Additional information about the project and the Center for Nonlinear Science is available at and


Candidates with a Ph.D. in physics, applied mathematics, biomedical engineering, or a related field and background in nonlinear dynamics and experience with computer simulations are encouraged to apply. The appointment is available immediately, with applications considered until the position is filled. To apply, please upload curriculum vitae along with a brief statement of how your research interests are related to the position to #6343, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation uploaded to this site.
