· The analysis of systems of partial or ordinary differential equations, for example proving the existence of coherent structures (such as traveling waves) in PDE or related systems; the development, analysis and numerical solution of models of biological invasions incorporating adaptive evolution. Candidates should have a PhD in mathematics with a research background in PDE or related subdisciplines.

· The development and implementation of numerical algorithms to solve nonsmooth/nonconvex optimization problems in imaging and data processing. Candidates should have a PhD in mathematics/computer science/engineering with a research background in optimization and data analysis, as well as fluency in programming with Matlab and Python.

Applicants should submit a CV, a cover letter and contact information for two academic references. The cover letter should include a brief description of the applicant’s current research. Application reviews will start immediately. The position will start on July 1, 2021 and is expected to last two years, with a possible extension for a third year.
