Postdoctoral Research in Numerical Analysis & Scientific Computing


Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin, in the research group of Gunnar Martinsson. Current areas of activity in the group include: Randomized methods for matrix computations and data analysis, fast direct solvers for elliptic PDEs, boundary integral equation methods, multidomain spectral methods, high-order methods for parabolic PDEs, and computational fluid dynamics.

The positions are available to be filled immediately, but start date is flexible. The duration of the positions would normally be between 2 and 3 years, but there is flexibility on this point in either direction. Applications submitted before November 15 will receive full consideration, but the search will remain open until both positions have been filled.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in mathematics, computer science,
computational sciences, or a related field with a strong background in numerical analysis and scientific computing. Plus factors would include prior experience in: numerical linear algebra, randomized algorithms, numerical methods for PDEs, fast solvers, high-order time stepping methods, rank-structured matrix computations, or computational fluid dynamics.

How to Apply

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, a statement of research interests (ideally of about 500 words), current CV, and a list of three references as a single PDF file to
