If you're after a rewarding career, Monash
University can help make it happen. With leading academics and
world-class resources, combined with a ranking in the top 100
universities worldwide, we offer all you need to build a brighter future.
Candidates are sought
for two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions at the School of Mathematical
Sciences, Clayton campus, Monash University, to participate in a research project
Simulation Methods for the Coupled Solar Interior and Atmosphere". The two postdocs will collaborate with the
project team to develop advanced numerical methods and carry
out large-scale simulations that allow us to address challenging questions in
the area of wave propagation in the solar interior and atmosphere.
Research Fellow (Position A)
The first postdoctoral
fellow (Position A) will focus on developing novel numerical methods and
software for parallel simulation of compressible fluids on adaptive grids. The
fellow will be supervised by Professor Hans De Sterck, in collaboration with Professor Clinton Groth from University of Toronto.
To be considered for Position A you
will have a PhD in applied/computational mathematics, mechanical/aerospace
engineering, or computational science, with specialisation in one or more of
numerical methods for PDEs (hyperbolic conservation laws), scalable solvers, or
computational fluid dynamics. Experience with parallel programming in C++ is
desirable. Specific research topics of interest include parallel linear and
nonlinear solvers for high-order accurate implicit time integration, and
parallel adaptive grid refinement with error estimation.
Research Fellow (Position B)
The second postdoctoral
fellow (Position B) will focus on the computational study of wave propagation
in the solar interior and atmosphere using high-performance simulation codes.
The fellow will be supervised by Professor Paul Cally (Monash) and Dr Sergiy
Shelyag (Northumbria University).
To be considered for Position B you will have a PhD in
applied mathematics, computational (astro)physics, solar physics, or a related
discipline. Familiarity with magnetohydrodynamics, solar or
stellar astrophysics and/or some experience
in helioseismology would be an advantage. Specific topics of research
will include numerical simulation of MHD waves in the solar interior and
atmosphere, including data analysis, visualisation and solar physics
The intended start date
for these positions is between June and September 2016 (negotiable).
Your online application
must address the selection criteria, identify the position you are applying for
(Position A or B) and include contact
details for 3 referees.
