This position is for a scientist working in HeartFlow’s CFD Research team whose primary responsibility will be to research, design, develop, test and deploy cutting-edge computational algorithms for modeling blood flow and related technologies. The scientist will tackle exciting problems that can include topics such as reduced order modeling, patient-specific physiological modeling, perfusion simulation, advection-diffusion modeling, sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification. The scientist will have access to the vast amount of HeartFlow’s non-invasive and invasive data for data driven approaches to HeartFlow’s physiology and fluid dynamics challenges.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Implement highly accurate reduced order modeling algorithms for efficient fluid simulation.
  • Develop and implement methods to enable uncertainty quantification in coronary flow analyses.
  • Assist with the implementation of new computational methods including plaque traction force analysis, advection-diffusion equations for contrast simulation and improved outflow boundary conditions.
  • Support clinical studies with CFD and physiology expertise.
  • Assist with the development of feedback control algorithms and tuning capabilities to more accurately model pulsatile flow during adenosine-induced hyperemia and exercise.
  • Assist with the development of new modeling capabilities for carotid artery disease, renal artery disease, peripheral artery disease.
  • Assist with the development of FSI methods for assessing vulnerability of coronary and carotid plaques for rupture.

You have experience in the following:

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Reduced Order Modeling
  • Coronary Physiology
  • Uncertainty modeling
  • Statistics and Machine Learning
  • Python (advanced programming)
  • C++ (knowledgeable)

You are passionate about:

  • Solving critical medical problems with state-of-the-art technology
  • Revolutionizing the way cardiovascular disease is diagnosed and treated
  • Being a great engineer: 1) Familiarity with modern software development tools (bug tracking systems, source code revision control, automated testing) 2) Writing clean, modular, bug-free code 3)Algorithm development and computational complexity

You want to learn about:

  • Working in a regulated medical software company
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Advanced Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Computer Vision
  • High-performance and scalable computing
  • Cloud computing

Educational Requirements & Work Experience:

  • PhD in Engineering, Computer Science, Math or related field with a focus on Computational Fluid Dynamics is a must
  • A minimum of 2 years post-PhD work experience is desirable
  • Publication record in high-impact engineering, computer science, math and/or computational physics journals or conferences is highly desirable
