Opportunities for postdoctoral research in numerical analysis & scientific computing  

Job summary:   Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in the Institute for Computational and Engineering Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin, in the research group of Gunnar Martinsson. Current areas of activity in the group include: Randomized methods for matrix computations and data analysis, fast direct solvers for elliptic PDEs, boundary integral equation methods, multidomain spectral methods, high-order methods for parabolic PDEs, and computational fluid dynamics.  

The positions are available to be filled immediately, but the start date is flexible. 

The initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal based upon availability of funding and performance. The appointment can be renewed up to 4 times, but an overall duration of 2 or 3 years would normally be expected."

Applications submitted before December 1 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until both positions have been filled. 

Qualifications:  Applicants must have a Ph.D. in mathematics, computer science, computational sciences, or a related field with a strong background in numerical analysis and scientific computing. Plus factors would include prior experience in: numerical linear algebra, randomized algorithms, numerical methods for PDEs, fast solvers, high-order time stepping methods, rank-structured matrix computations, or computational fluid dynamics. 

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, a statement of research interests (ideally of about 500 words), current CV, and  a minimum of three letters of reference

 The University of Texas at Austin is an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. This job is a security-sensitive position.
