About the Position

Simula Research Laboratory invites outstanding applicants for one 3-year PhD position, who will carry out research activities within the MicroCard project funded by EuroHPC. The project's overall objective is to develop an exascale application platform for cardiac electrophysiology simulations that is usable for cell-by-cell simulations.

The starting date is January 1, 2021.

The PhD student is to enroll in the PhD program of University of Oslo, and obtain the PhD from University of Oslo upon completion.


The PhD student is expected to adopt modern techniques of HPC and performance optimization, as well as the latest developments in HPC hardware and middleware, to enable efficient simulation of cardiac electrophysiology based on a cell-by-cell approach. The research activities will be under supervision and assistance of senior staff at the   Department of High Performance Computing and the Department of Computational Physiology. The PhD student is also expected to actively collaborate with researchers at the other partners of the project. Writing scientific publications and software code, as well as disseminating/reporting the project’s research findings, are included in the responsibilities of the PhD position.

Required profile

All applicants must hold a master's degree (or equivalent education) in a subject of computational science or computer science. The successful candidate must have solid knowledge of numerical methods for solving PDEs, parallel computing and programming. Expertise with computational electrophysiology is preferred. It is also expected that the successful candidate has good skills in scientific communication (both oral and written).
