Postdoctoral Research Associate in Numerical Methods for Kinetic Transport Equations (closed)
The Computer Science and Mathematics Division is seeking an applied mathematician to aide in the development of scalable algorithms for kinetic transport equations with multi-scale phenomena.
The position requires collaboration within a multi-disciplinary research environment consisting of mathematicians, computational scientists, computer scientists, engineers, and physicists conducting basic and applied research in support of the Laboratory’s missions. Specific responsibilities include the development and design of multi-scale, multi-physics algorithms for simulating partial differential equations on large-scale, heterogeneous architectures. Application areas of particular interest include radiation transport, electron transport, and plasma physics.
- Ph.D. in applied mathematics.
- Strong background in numerical methods and analysis for partial differential equations.
- Expertise in more than one area of particular relevance to simulations of interest, such as
- Discretization techniques for time-dependent, hyperbolic PDE;
- Multi-scale methods;
- Model reduction and closures.
- Demonstrated experience in the design and implementation of numerical algorithms on heterogeneous architectures.
- Demonstrated written and oral communication skills.
- Effective interpersonal skills.
- Previous experience with kinetic transport equations.
- Experience working in a multi-disciplinary research environment.
- Software design education or experience.
Applicants cannot have received the most recent degree more than three years prior to the date of application and must complete all degree requirements before starting their appointment. Certain exceptions may be considered. This position is a temporary, full-time assignment for 24 months.
