Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in
Numerical Analyis/Modelling/Scientific Computing to work with Dr.
A. Dedner (University of Warwick, Mathematics), Prof S. Arridge (UCL
Centre for Medical Image Computing) and Dr T. Betcke (UCL Mathematics)
on schemes for coupling finite element and boundary element methods
(FEM+BEM) with applications to medical imaging. The aim is to combine
two existing packages (DUNE and BEM++), building a powerful software
platform for solving a wide range of problems involving
discretizations on surfaces and in bulk domains using HPC
facilities. This is part of a large interdisciplinary group,
researching finite element and boundary element methods, their
application and implementation. The group involves both experts in
FEM/BEM and in Electrical Impedance Tomography, Ultrasound and Optical
Tomography, including industrial collaboration.
The Research Associate will contribute to the development of the
methods and their implementation for large-scale problems on high
performance computing facilities. A strong background in mathematics,
scientific computing or related areas is required. In particular,
candidates should have experience with finite and/or boundary element
methods. Software development experience in C++ is essential.
