We announce a Ph.D. position in the area 'Computational Astrophysics'
at the University of Vienna, Austria, funded by the
Austrian Science Fund (FWF) for an initial period of 2 years with
possible extension for at least a third year.
The successful applicant (m/f/d) will work at the research platform
MMM "Mathematics-Magnetism-Materials" (mmm.univie.ac.at)
c/o Fak. Mathematik Univ.Wien, as a member of the
ACORE group (https://acore.univie.ac.at/) on numerical methods and
computer simulations for magnetohydrodynamics of the solar surface,
in particular on developing the ANTARes code.
The successful applicant is expected to
- Develop and implement new numerical methods for
Computational (Magneto) Hydro Dynamics,
e.g. Operator splitting methods and (symplectic) time integrators,
- Apply them in large-scale, highly parallelized simulations of the
- Visualize and interpret the results
Candidates interested in this position hold a master's degree in applied
mathematics, computational sciences, computational physics or a
master's degree in (astro)physics with focus on numerical mathematics
and scientific computing. Experience in numerical modelling and
programming skills in either C/C++ or Fortran are expected.
The candidate should be eligible for a doctoral study in natural
sciences/mathematics at the University of Vienna.
Candidates must already be authorized to work in the EU.
The application by e-mail contains the following attachements:
a) 1/2 page motivation letter
b) 1 page CV, with a report on university credits
c) a proof of language skills, if not native speakers of English or German
d) a summary of research work (including publications)
e) names of two scientists willing to write a recommendation letter
Applications are sent to the PI of the project at firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications are welcome until the position is filled.
