A 3-year position as PhD student is available in the group of Prof. Krause “High Performance Methods for Numerical Simulation in Science, Medicine and Engineering” at the Institute of Computational Science (ICS) in Lugano, Switzerland.
The position is part of the project “ExaSolvers – Extreme scale solvers for coupled problems” within the DFG Priority Programme “Software for Exascale Computing”. The successful applicant will work on the development of an efficient time-parallel method for diffusion problems on heterogeneous domains. The project is conducted with international collaborators from Germany and the United States.
ICS at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) in Lugano provides a unique research environment in the fields of mathematical modeling, high-performance computing and numerical simulation. Strong competences in modeling, mathematics, simulation and information science come together in an open and application oriented atmosphere. In addition to the opportunities at USI and ICS, the Swiss-wide FoMICS graduate school and the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) in Lugano both offer excellent educational possibilities for PhD students. For further information about ICS, please visit www.ics.inf.usi.ch.
Applicants should have a degree in applied mathematics, computer science or a related field with a focus on numerical simulation and scientific computing. Knowledge in numerical mathematics and experience in a programming language like C, C++ or FORTRAN is mandatory. Some experience in parallel programming is considered a plus. Applicants should be interested in methodological development of numerical algorithms as well as in their implementation on high-performance computing systems. Solid English skills are required.
