PhD position on algorithms for hybrid AMR

A PhD position is available immediately at the Institute for Numerical Simulation (INS) at the University of Bonn, Germany. The envisioned research aims at developing new, scalable parallel algorithms for adaptive mesh refinement using various shape primitives, such as cubes, tetrahedra, prisms, and pyramids. These algorithms shall be prototyped, demonstrated, and published as part of the p4est and t8code software libraries. This particular project is collaborative with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with applications to atmosphere simulations and numerical weather studies.

A successful candidate would present a Master’s degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, or a closely related field. They should be familiar with the basic theories on the numerical solution of partial differential equations, experienced in parallel programming with MPI, and skilled in the collaborative development of open source scientific software.

The INS is part of Bonn Mathematics and covers research and teaching of scientific computing, numerical simulation, and numerical analysis. The PhD position will be embedded in the graduate school of the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM), a stimulating research environment and support structure.
