The Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at Umeå University is opening a PhD position in computational science and engineering with specialization in mathematics. Apply latest November 28, 2021.

In this project, we will develop numerical methods that address the above challenges by combining the efficiency of finite difference methods and the flexibility of discontinuous Galerkin methods. Much attention will be placed on the numerical analysis perspective, such as stability analysis, error estimates, conditioning and time-step restriction. We will implement and verify the developed methods for large-scale benchmark problems in geophysics.

Umeå offers excellent working and living conditions. The working environment is international and very family friendly, as exemplified by a generous allotment of 480 days paid parental leave for each child. Umeå is a young city located right next to a large river. It is surrounded by forests and lakes and lies close by the sea. The city offers excellent opportunities for both outdoor and indoor activities.
