PhD positions in Computational and Applied Marine Science
Applications are invited from highly motivated candidates for two PhD research fellowship positions in computational and applied marine science, jointly funded by the newly formed Western Norway University of Applied Sciences and the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research as part of a research collaboration between the two institutes.
The successful candidates will work on a cross-disciplinary research project which seek to develop cutting edge methodologies to support a framework for modelling and prediction of fish stock’s population dynamics and uncertainty quantification. The principal areas of research will include elements of computational modeling, optimization, parameter estimation, image processing, and numerical solutions to space-time ordinary, partial, and delay differential equations.
A master's degree in mathematics, computational sciences, mathematical biology, or a related field is required. Excellent grades in the graduate level, and strong programming skills in Matlab, C/C++ or Python, are also expected. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated ability to work independently, good English language skills and a potential to carry out high-quality research. Initial salaries will be offered at pay grade 50 on the governement salary scale (NOK 436 900 gross p.a.).
