Postdoc position in parallel adaptive finite element multiphysics solvers at CIMNE-UPC, Barcelona

The International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) at BarcelonaTech-Universitat Politcnica de Catalunya (UPC) is seeking a postdoctoral candidate to work on scalable preconditioners for adaptive finite element multiphysics solvers. The candidate will belong to the newly created Large Scale Computing and Computational Physics department, which is focused on the development of computational methods for the numerical approximation of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs).

The creation of this group is funded by the European Union through the Starting Grant COMFUS (Dr. Santiago Badia) from the European Research Council (ERC) and the FP7 project NUMEXAS: Numerical Methods and Tools for Key Exascale Computing Challenges. We are looking for excellent candidates holding a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Computational Mechanics/Physics or Computer Science. Background on parallel computing, domain decomposition techniques and/or finite elements will be highly appreciated. The candidate would collaborate in the development of scalable adaptive finite element solvers, with application to plasma physics and fusion engineering. The position will remain opened till filled, but it is recommended to apply before the end of March 2014. The appointment is originally for 2 years but can be extended. The salary would be among 32,000-40,000 EUR, but the numbers are flexible and will depend on experience. Send your application, providing CV, to: Recommendation letters will likely be requested.
