Research positions available

Posted Nov 20, 2010.

Three postdoctoral positions (starting immediately) are available in George Biros's group in the School of Computational Science and Engineering. Each of the three positions will focus on a separate subject matter: (1) high-performance computing ; (2) numerical algorithms for inverse problems; and (3) algorithms for medical imaging.

* Candidates interested in position one (HPC) must have some background in computational mathematics and a strong background in parallel algorithms and programming in C++/MPI/CUDA. The application focus will be on multiscale methods for problems in computational physics and statistical inference.

* Candidates interested in position two (inverse problems) must have a strong background in computational mathematics. Excellent knowledge of either MATLAB or C++ is also necessary. The application focus will be on statistical estimation algorithms for acoustic and elastic scattering.

* Candidates interested in position three (medical imaging) must have a strong background in numerical algorithms in medical imaging: e.g., segmentation, registration, and classification. Programming experience in C++ is required.

Successful candidates will have excellent collaborative opportunities within a diverse group of researchers and subject areas, including data analytics high performance computing, computational mathematics and medical imaging.

The positions are open for an initial duration of one year, starting immediately, and will be renewable to up to three years. Interested applicants should email a curriculum vitae and a research statement (no more than 2 pages in length) to George Biros (
