Postdoc Position, Scientific Computing, Univ College London

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in
Scientific Computing/Numerical Modelling. The successful candidate
will work as part of an interdisciplinary team across the UCL Centre
for Medical Image Computing and the UCL Department of Mathematics on
the development of numerical solvers for complex medical imaging
applications. In particular this involves

(i) The development of GPU based fast multipole methods for boundary
   element formulations as part of the BEM++ project (,
   and its coupling to finite element libraries for the efficient
   solution of complex medical imaging problems.

(ii) The extension of the existing finite element codes to include
   adaptive meshing, a-posteriori error estimators, discontinuous
   Galerkin methods, and parallel solvers.

Candidates should have experience with finite element and or boundary
element methods. Software development experience in C++ is essential.
