Research Associate in Numerical Analysis of PDEs for Wave Propagation

Applications are invited for a 3-year full-time Research Associate to work with Dr Euan Spence as part of the EPSRC-funded project "At the interface between semiclassical analysis (SCA) and numerical analysis (NA) of wave propagation problems".

This position will be concerned with the numerical analysis - involving a mixture of theory and computations - of acoustic and electromagnetic problems, modelled in the frequency domain by the Helmholtz equation and the time-harmonic Maxwell equations. (There is a second PDRA focused on SCA aspects.)

The successful candidate will have, or will be nearing the completion of, a PhD in the Numerical Analysis of Partial Differential Equations. The knowledge and experience of working in the area of boundary integral equations will be an added advantage, but strong applicants without this experience are also encouraged to apply.

The post carries no teaching or administrative duties. There are generous funds available under the project for attending conferences and conducting research visits.  

This post is fixed-term for 3 years, starting no later than 1 October 2019 by mutual agreement. You are asked to include with your application a CV (with list of publications), and a cover letter stating your motivations for applying.

Interviews will take place in late April/early May.

Informal enquiries are very welcome and can be made to Dr Euan Spence, however, please ensure that all applications are submitted via the University website.
