We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to work on a joint project between Dr. Christina Frederick (NJIT Department of Mathematical Sciences) and Dr. Yunan Yang (Cornell University Department of Mathematics). This position will be based at NJIT and will focus on research in the intersection of inverse problems, analysis, and computational mathematics.

The position is initially for one year, with the option to renew for 1-2 additional years, subject to satisfactory performance. The postdoctoral research associate will also have opportunities to visit the Mathematics Department at Cornell University to work with Dr. Yang.

The successful candidate will work on the ONR Project “Optimal Transport-based Strategies in Waves and Dynamics” led by Prof. Christina Frederick at NJIT and Prof. Yunan Yang at Cornell University. The project will harness and advance the power of optimal transport theory to capture the intrinsic characteristics of complex physical processes arising in a wide range of important scientific applications, e.g., ocean electromagnetics, inverse scattering, time series modeling. The postdoctoral associate will integrate and develop optimal transport theories and computational methods for the forward and inverse modeling in these applications.
