Postdoctoral Position in Numerical Analysis of Wave Scattering Problems

Applications are invited for a 3-year full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) position on the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council-funded project: "Fast solvers for frequency domain wave scattering problems and applications".


The overall goal of the project is to design, analyse, and implement fast, highly-parallel domain decomposition preconditioners for heterogeneous frequency-domain wave problems involving acoustic, electromagnetic, and elastic waves. The investigators are Ivan Graham, Euan Spence, and Silvia Gazzola at Bath and Victorita Dolean at Strathclyde (Glasgow). The project concerns the numerical analysis and applications of iterative solvers for discrete frequency-domain wave equations at moderate- to high-frequency, their implementation on HPC architectures and application to forward and inverse problems in geosciences and electromagnetics.
