RTG-CCoM Postdoctoral Fellows

The Center for Computational Mathematics (http://ccom.ucsd.edu/) in the Department of Mathematics at the University of California, San Diego invites applications for two postdoctoral positions in applied mathematics, computational science, or mathematical physics that are funded under a NSF Research Training Group (RTG) grant. Applicants must be US citizens, nationals, or permanent residents, and should hold a Ph.D. in mathematics (or a related discipline) prior to the beginning of the appointment. These two year positions are expected to have on average a one course per quarter teaching load, and provide support for both the academic year and the summer. In addition, travel support to attend conferences is provided. Applicants must possess a recent Ph.D. degree received no earlier than 2013 in Mathematics or a related field. The successful candidates will be mentored by several of the RTG PIs on one or more of the following focus projects: (i) new algorithms for parallel computation with adaptive multilevel finite elements; (ii) optimization with ordinary or partial differential equation constraints; (iii) structure-preserving numerical methods for field theories and interconnected systems; (vi) geometric numerical methods for applications in mathematical physics; and (v) numerical methods for quantum computation. Additional information about the RTG can be found at http://ccom.ucsd.edu/~rtg/ Applications received by January 15, 2015 at http://www.mathjobs.org/ will receive full consideration, but we will continue to review applications until the positions are filled. Applications should include the following:
  • 3 Reference Letters (Writers should upload their reference letter to mathjobs.org; at least one letter should address teaching experience in some depth)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Publications List
  • Research Statement
  • Teaching Statement
