PhD Position in Computational Mathematics

A new PhD fellowship in computational mathematics is available at the
Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Norwegian University of
Science and Technology (

The PhD project will focus on the development and application of novel
computational tools for the accurate and efficient simulation of
complex multiphysics flows. Such flows play an important role in many
environmental and engineering applications, for instance, in the
combat of oil spills, the design of droplet-based microfluidic
devices, and the modeling of cell motion.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a sound
background in numerical mathematics and a strong interest for
developing novel numerical schemes and applying them to challenging
application problems in science and engineering. The project requires
good programming skills, preferably in C++, and basic knowledge in
partial differential equations and their numerical
solution. Knowledge/interest in fluid mechanics and/or scientific
computing are considered merits. Experience with open source finite
element libraries such as FEniCS, deal.ii, mfem, ngsolve, DUNE
etc. are advantageous but not required.

The successful candidate will be offered a three-year, full-time
research position. The Department may offer a twelve month extension
as a teaching assistant. The work place will be Trondheim.
