Application Deadline : April 20, 2012
The research at the Division for Scientific Computing has a broad scope, ranging from numerical analysis over software development and high-performance computing to collaborative projects in Computational Science and Engineering, and industrial applications. The research is organized in two research programs (Computational Science and Engineering and Numerical Analysis) with a common graduate (PhD) education program in Scientific Computing. The Division has an extensive international and national research network and co-leads the Uppsala-Lund-Umeå e-Science consortium eSSENCE, which is a new major Strategic Research Area effort funded by the Swedish Ministry of Education. The Division also hosts the Director for the UppsalaCenter for Interdisciplinary Mathematics and participates in the programming for multicore architecturesCenter of Excellence UPMARC funded by the Swedish Research Council.
Examples of possible PhD student projects and further information is found athttp://www.it.uu.se/research/scicomp/PhD-positions-2012.
A PhD position in Scientific Computing requires a Master of Science in Computational Mathematics, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent in a field which is relevant for the topic of the PhD thesis. The position is for a maximum of four years and includes departmental duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching). The salary amounts currently to about 24,200 SEK per month in the first year.
Applications should include a description of research interests and past experience, a CV, copies of exams, degrees and grades, a copy of Master thesis (or a draft thereof), relevant publications, and other relevant documents. Candidates are encouraged to provide contact information to reference persons. Candidates should also indicate their preferred PhD student project(s) listed on the home page above. Applications may be submitted by candidates that have not fully completed the Master of Science degree (or equivalent), however all applicants should state the earliest feasible starting date of employment.
The department is striving to achieve gender balance therefore are female candidates particularly invited to apply.
