Funded PhD positions in Numerical Linear Algebra and HPC

Funded PhD positions are available within the framework of the ERC project "Analyzing and Exploiting Inexactness in Exascale Matrix Computations", led by Dr. Erin Carson at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at Charles University. Applications are invited from candidates who have strong background in numerical linear algebra, numerical analysis, parallel computing, or computational/data science application domains. The start date is October 2023, by which time the applicants must hold a Master's degree. Successful candidates must formally enroll in the PhD program at Charles University.

Potential PhD topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Development and analysis of mixed precision numerical linear algebra algorithms
  • Parallel algorithms and implementations for new mixed precision algorithms
  • Numerical linear algebra applied to data analysis and machine learning applications
  • Stability and convergence analysis of asynchronous methods
  • Application of new algorithms within a particular computational or data science discipline

Further details about the project can be found at the project website:

Application deadline: March 24, 2023

Interested candidates should submit the following documents to

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Cover letter explaining motivation and interest to obtain the position of PhD student
  • Brief summary of Master's thesis (including pdf file of Master's thesis if available)

In addition, the candidate should arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent directly to the same e-mail address before the application deadline.

Selected finalists will be invited to officially apply through the university system; official acceptance in the program will be pending an entrance examination. For complete details on the admissions procedure, see
