***********  Open postdoctoral research positions in computational 
mathematics  ***************

The Institute of Computational Science (ICS) in the Faculty of 
Informatics at the University of Lugano (http://www.ics.inf.usi.ch) 
invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the area of 
computational mathematics.

The research positions are part of the Swiss HP2C-initiative 
(High-Performance and High Productivity Computing Initiative, 
http://www.hp2c.ch). The successful applicants will work in close 
collaboration with researchers in Switzerland and world-wide.

The areas of focus of these positions include:
- Development, analysis and implementation of parallel numerical methods 
for high performance computing.
- Actively collaborating with the HP2C applications development teams 
and the groups at ICS.
- Publishing papers in high-quality refereed conferences and journals.

The candidates should meet the following requirements:
- A master or diploma and doctoral degree in mathematics, computer 
science or related disciplines with a strong focus on scientific 
computing/computational sciences.
- Strong background in High Performance Computing and/or Computational 
- Fluency (written and oral) in English.

Knowledge in the following areas is welcome:
- (massively) parallel computing;
- (nonconforming) domain decomposition techniques;
- adaptive methods (e.g. adaptive finite elements);
- nonlinear and inverse problems;
- state of the art solution and discretization methods;
- hierarchical methods, wavelets, multipol;
- programming experience with C/C++ and MPI;
- mathematical modeling and numerical analysis;
- multi core chips, concurrency-supporting languages and hardware 
specific languages.

Applications should be sent by e-mail to decanato.inf at usi.ch including 
the following documents:
- a complete CV;
- a journal article published or under submission;
- a letter stating the reasons of your interest and your competences in 
the field.

Position will be for a three years term at standard conditions for 
postdoctoral fellows at USI.

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. 
Applications submitted until

May 31, 2010

will be treated with higher priority. Owing to the large number of 
enquiries expected, only those applicants whose profiles are likely to 
fit the positions will be notified for further details and eventual
