PhD fellowships at CIMNE-UPC, Barcelona

The Computational Physics and Large Scale Computing department at the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), BarcelonaTech (UPC), is seeking candidates for PhD studies. The department is focused on the development of computational methods for the numerical approximation of partial differential equations (PDEs) and is partially 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 motivated candidates with a MSc in engineering, mathematics, physics or computer science. Excellent qualifications will be important, since students are also expected to apply for competitive PhD fellowships. We have opening PhD fellowships on high order finite element techniques, adaptive finite element solvers, domain decomposition preconditioners, with application to plasma physics and fusion engineering. The positions will remain open till appropriate candidates will be found but it is recommended to apply before the end of March 2014. Send your application, providing CV, to
