The position as Assistant Professor involves research and
teaching. Distribution between research and teaching is negotiable but
the percentage of teaching will not be more than 25%.
KTH in Stockholm is the largest and oldest technical university in
Sweden. No less than one-third of Sweden’s technical research and
engineering education capacity at university level is provided by KTH.
The Department of High Performance Computing and Visualization
(HPCViz) focuses on developing methods and software for scientific
computing based on partial differential equations, and new concepts
for improved usage of high performance computer systems, including
algorithms, programming environments, tools, and the analysis and
synthesis of visual data. The department has established collaboration
with industry and clinical medicine based on the application of
simulation technology, in particular in the form of the open source
software project FEniCS for finite element computation developed at
the department, and also has strong links with the PDC Center for High
Performance Computing that operates national supercomputing resources.
The successful candidate is expected to strengthen the department in
its strategy towards high performance scientific computing, focusing
on one or more of the key topics researched in the department; method
and software development for finite element approximation of partial
differential equations, efficient algorithms, programming models,
runtime environments, and performance tools. The candidate is also
expected to contribute to the supervision of PhD students and
participate in related EC projects in leading positions.
Deadline for applications is August 31.
