The University of California, Merced, is the newest of the University of California system’s 10 campuses and the first American research university built in the 21st century. With more than 7,500 undergraduate and graduate students, UC Merced offers an environment that combines a commitment to diversity, inclusion, collaboration and professional development. With bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programs, strong research and academic partnerships, and community involvement, the UC Merced campus is continually evolving and requires talented, knowledgeable and dynamic educators, researchers, management and staff.

Ranked among the best public universities in the nation by U.S. News and World Report, UC Merced is uniquely equipped to provide educational opportunities to highly qualified students from the San Joaquin Valley and throughout California. The campus enjoys a special connection with nearby Yosemite National Park, is on the cutting edge of sustainability in construction and design, and supports the economic development of Merced and the region.

In Fall 2016, UC Merced broke ground on a $1.3 billion public-private partnership that is unprecedented in higher education. The Merced 2020 Project will nearly double the physical capacity of the campus by 2020, enhancing academic distinction, student success and research excellence. UC Merced has also built the Downtown Campus Center, a $33 million, three-story administrative building in the heart of Merced.

The postdoctoral researcher will work with Camille Carvalho's research group, and perform research on numerical methods for electromagnetic interface problems. The researcher will derive and analyze different interface problems formulations, develop and implement numerical methods. The researcher will also be expected to take a primary role in preparing manuscripts for publication, and contribute to the collaborative research group environment.

Applications must be submitted via and must include 1) a cover letter, 2) a curriculum vitae, 3) a statement of research interests (2 pages maximum), and 4) a list of 2 reference letters. Please see below for additional reference requirements.

Basic requirements: - PhD in the fields of applied mathematics or computational science and engineering with experience in developing numerical methods and performing numerical simulations. - Some knowledge about electromagnetism or related fields. Experience in finite elements method, or boundary integral equation methods is preferred.

The postdoc position does not include a teaching requirement. The initial appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extension depending on performance and funding.

Review of applications will begin April 7th, 2019, the search will remain open until the position is filled.
