2 postdoc positions at the University of Franche-Comté (France) in PDE and Numerical Analysis/Scientific Computing

The University of Franche-Comté offers two post-doctoral positions.
These offers are also available at http://trimestres-lmb.univ-fcomte.fr/Post-doctoral-positions-120.html

Applicants should be working in one of the following areas:

Profile 1: Variational and topological methods in elliptic PDE, stability of standing waves.
The applicant should work in (at least one of ) the following areas : Variational methods in elliptic PDE, concentration for singular problems, Liouville type results, orbital stability of standing waves.
For further informations about the scientific profile, please contact louis.jeanjean@univ-fcomte.fr

Profile 2: Scientific Computing/Numerical Analysis.
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who will participate in the ongoing work on the development of multi-scale finite element methods applied to the flow simulations in a complex geometry (in the presence of numerous obstacles). The main challenge will consist in extending the methods, which are already developed in the linear case (Stokes equations) to the non-linear one (Navier-Stokes equations) using the reduced basis techniques. The candidates with research interests intersecting with those of the Scientific Computing/Numerical Analysis group in Besançon (https://lmb.univ-fcomte.fr/spip.php?page=rubrique&id_rubrique=8) are welcome to apply as well.
For further informations about the scientific profile, please contact alexei.lozinski@univ-fcomte.fr

Profile 3: Control theory for systems governed by PDE.
The applicant should work in (at least one of ) the following areas: Controllability of linear and nonlinear parabolic and hyperbolic systems.

Applicants are expected to have graduated with a Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral program by the end of August 2014. Applicants who have graduated before September 2008 are not eligible.

Your application should contain:
1) a vitae containing basic data including your birthday, your nationality, and present country of residence.
2) a list of publications together with the links to the publications.
3) a short description of your past research.
4) a short research project.

Your application should be sent by e-mail with "postdocPDENA" in the subject line to the address: pdena2015@univ-fcomte.fr

Your application should be received at the latest on June 30th 2014. Applicants will be informed of the final decision by July 10th 2014.
