Open positions: 1 postdoctoral position
and 2 PhD positions
Centre of Mathematics for Applications (CMA) was on March 1, 2003,
funded as a 'Centre of Excellence' by the Research Council of Norway.
CMA is one of three such centres at the University of Oslo.
The departments of Informatics, Mathematics, Physics and the Institute
of Theoretical Astrophysics are involved, with collaboration from
SINTEF Applied Mathematics. There are also participants (centre
members) from the universities in Bergen and Trondheim. Read more
about CMA here.
We hereby invite applications
for 1 postdoc position and 2 PhD scholarships
All positions are available from August 1, 2005, but the start
date may be delayed if necessary.
Applications with all necessary enclosures must be received
by May 24, 2005
The postdoctoral position will be granted for a period of 2
The PhD positions will be granted for a period of 3 years.
The main vision of CMA is to create a national research centre
in mathematics where top class scientists from different areas can
work together with a joint perspective and common goals. The main
focus is on mathematics motivated from applications, with emphasis
on problems arising from modern scientific computing. The activity
in the centre is built upon 4 different research areas: geometry,
stochastic analysis, differential equations and applications in
the physical sciences (mainly within astrophysics and computational
quantum mechanics). The centre specifically focuses on research
activities on the boundaries and intersections of these areas.
For the postdoctoral position
The position is dedicated to the research area of non-linear partial
differential equations. Of particular relevance are candidates that
have background/interest in the mathematical and numerical theory
of conservation laws, compressible Navier-Stokes equations, and
various fluid flow phenomena.
Applications must include complete information about education,
former positions, teaching and administrative experience (documented),
and a list of publications. Applicants must hold a PhD or at least
have submitted their PhD thesis. Women are especially encouraged
For the PhD positions
One of the positions is dedicated to the research area of non-linear
partial differential equations. Of particular relevance are candidates
that have background/interest in the mathematical and numerical
theory of conservation laws, compressible Navier-Stokes equations,
and various fluid flow phenomena.
For the second position, no such preferences are given. Here applicants
will be evaluated and ranked with respect to the research plan of
the centre. Whoever is employed must demonstrate their scientific
competence within mathematics or a related applied area. Preference
will be given to applicants with experience of computational problems
within the relevant areas, or with experience in problems that combine
aspects from two or more of the areas.
The full research plan can be found here
For both positions, applications must include complete information
about education at both bachelor and master level, and documented
scientific experience. All employees must satisfy the entrance requirements
for the doctoral degree programme at the Faculty of Mathematics
and Natural Sciences. Women are especially encouraged to apply.
