PhD Student in Numerical solution of PDEs

We are looking for PhD students to join our team of researchers working within the framework of the project "Adaptive methods for the numerical solution of partial differential equations: analysis, error estimates and iterative solvers" at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University.

Applications are invited from candidates who have a good background in numerical solution of partial differential equations, numerical analysis and programmimg. The candidate has to hold a Master's degree and meet the formal enrollment requirements of Charles University.

The positions come with a stipend of 20000 CZK per month in the first year study and then it can increase.

The subject of the PhD thesis is the numerical solution of problems arising in porous media flows (Richards equation) and related problems by discontinuous Galerkin method. The research consists of a priori and a posteriori error analysis, algorithmization and programming and the development of mesh adaptive methods.

The candidates should contact prof. Vit Dolejsi ( ) by December 2, 2019. Please include with your email:

Curriculum Vitae including the possible list of publications

Cover Letter explaining motivation and interest to obtain the position of PhD student

Brief summary of Master's study and thesis (including pdf file of Master's thesis if available)

Selected finalists will be instructed to officially apply through the university system, the deadline for which is December 31, 2019. Details of requirements for admission can be at
