One PhD position is available in Prof. Antonio Huerta's group - Laboratori de Càlcul Numèric (LaCàN), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
The project focuses on the development of high-order finite element methods for the high-fidelity simulation of multiphysics coupled problems involving electromagnetic phenomena (e.g. metamaterials, magnetohydrodynamics, ...) and reduced order models techniques for real- time solution of parameterized partial differential equations.
The research will be developed under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Huerta and Dr. Matteo Giacomini (UPC), in close collaboration with Dr. Rubén Sevilla (Swansea University, UK). The project is funded by means of a 4-year fellowship within the framework of the Spanish Plan Nacional CrediblE "Data assimilation for Credible Engineering simulations". The prospective PhD student is expected to start immediately or in September 2018.
Requirements: MSc degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, engineering or related disciplines; knowledge of numerical methods for the approximation of partial differential equations (in particular, the finite element method); good programming skills (Matlab and/or Fortran); hard-working and enthusiastic attitude; curiosity and commitment to develop high-quality research.
Interested candidates may apply by sending a CV, transcripts of BSc and MSc studies, a motivation letter and the contacts of at least two academic references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
