The appointment will full time be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £34,056 -£36,923 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
Applications are invited for a full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work with Prof. Erik Burman, Dr. Timo Betcke and Prof. Simon Arridge on the project "Geometrically unfitted finite element methods for inverse identification of geometries and shape optimization". The project focuses on open problems in computational methods for shape optimization and identification using nonconforming finite element methods. The responsibilities of the post will include: carrying out vigorous, high-level research into computational and theoretical aspects of shape optimization using finite element/boundary element methods, more specifically levelset based geometrical description in combination with geometrically unfitted FEM, submitting publications regularly in refereed journals; participating in local seminars and in national and international conferences. This post is funded for 3 years in the first instance.
Candidates should either have a PhD or equivalent qualification in numerical analysis or scientific computing, should be finalising their PhD or waiting for their viva date. The successful candidate is expected to have some expertise and research experience in computational and theoretical aspects of finite element methods or related topics in numerical analysis. Candidates will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, both written and oral. Knowledge of aspects of nonconforming finite element methods and levelset methods is also desirable.
