Research Fellow – Numerical Analysis@Monash

The School of Mathematics at Monash University invites applicants for the position of Research Fellow to work on a project in Numerical Analysis of PDEs. The role will involve collaborative work with Computer Scientists and Mathematical Biologists.

Job No.: 628753

Location: Clayton campus, Monash University

Employment Type: Full-time

Duration: 2-year fixed-term appointment

The successful candidate will conduct theoretical analysis and perform efficient implementation for novel discretisation techniques applied to the numerical solution of partial differential equations, under the guidance of Associate Professor Ricardo Ruiz Baier. In particular, the intended project is related to the simulation of the coupling between diffusion of intracellular calcium and elasticity in different types of cells (embryonic epithelial, cardiomyocytes, and other single cells or cell compounds), using virtual element methods or other schemes based on polytopal meshes.

Applicants must have a PhD in Applied Mathematics, Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, or a related field. It is also expected that they have a sound knowledge and experience in the analysis and implementation of virtual element schemes and/or mixed finite element methods, as well as some knowledge about solid mechanics.

Depending on the experience level of the candidate, this role may be filled at Level A or Level B. Please refer to the position description for different levels.
