Position Description:    

The Centre for Mathematical Sciences at Lund University is seeking to strengthen its expertise in Scientific Computing and invites applications for a permanent position as Senior University Lecturer (Associate Professor).

Job description

The position mainly entails research and teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels (especially related to scientific computing and numerical analysis). Supervision of Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD students is included in the teaching duties. The amount of teaching is at most 60 % of full time. Administration tasks may be included. The work assignments of the position, as well as the relative proportions of research and teaching, may change over time.

The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the research group in Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing, for example via joint research activities and seminars. Furthermore, applying for external funding and developing interdisciplinary collaborations as well as collaborations within Mathematics, both with other departments within the University and with other universities, is expected.

About Lund University and the Faculty of Science

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 400 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition. The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees. 

About the Centre for Mathematical Sciences

The Centre for Mathematical Sciences has approximately 130 employees, with 30 in the section Mathematics, Faculty of Science, where this position is situatedThe other divisions are Mathematics with Numerical Analysis, Faculty of Engineering, and Mathematical Statistics. Research at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences is conducted in Scientific Computing and Numerical Analysis, Algebra, Operator Theory and Complex Analysis, Linear and Nonlinear PDEs, Differential Geometry, Dynamical Systems, Image Analysis, Machine Learning and Computer Vision, as well as Mathematical Statistics, Probability Theory, and Mathematical Didactics. The degree courses lead to Bachelor, Master, and PhD degrees and, at the Faculty of Engineering, to Civil Engineering degrees.

Research in Scientific Computing and Numerical Analysis at the Centre for the Mathematical Sciences focuses on numerical methods for differential equations. We are looking for a candidate with a connection to the current research activities that adds new research directions, e.g. high performance computing, PDE constrained optimization, uncertainty quantification, adaptivity, stochastic differential equations, model order reduction, or the relation to data based models.
