The start date is March 2020, by which time the applicants must hold a Master's degree. Successful candidates must formally enroll in the PhD program at Charles University.

Potential PhD topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Numerical analysis of high-performance iterative solver methods
  • Use of mixed precision hardware within numerical linear algebra routines
  • Numerical linear algebra applied to data analysis and machine learning applications
  • Stability and convergence analysis of asynchronous methods
  • Synchronization-reducing nonlinear optimization methods
  • Application of new algorithms within a particular computational or data science discipline

Further details about the project can be found at the project website:

Application deadline: November 15, 2019

Interested candidates should submit the following documents to

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Cover letter explaining motivation and interest to obtain the position of PhD student
