PhD/ESR in Arbitrray-Lagrange-Eulerian finite volume methods on nonconforming moving unstructured meshes


The group EDANYA of the University of Málaga https://edanya.uma.es/ is looking for a PhD candidate in Numerical Modeling of Geophysical Flows. The PhD position is part of ModCompShock, a 4-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie Initial Training Network http://modcompshock.eu/. The position is for 6 months and aims at developing efficient solvers of rotating fluid models by means of Arbitrray-Lagrange-Eulerian finite volume methods on nonconforming moving unstructured meshes, with applications to geophysical and astrophysical models. The mathematical and numerical aspects will be studied as well as the efficient implementation of the numerical methods in the computer. The PhD candidate will develop theoretical and numerical studies as well as scientific software in the context of the research project, and report results at conferences and in international journals.

Job description:The ITN ModCompShock focuses on the training of young researchers (ESRs) in the general area of nonlinear hyperbolic and convection dominated PDEs (HCD-PDEs) with emphasis on innovative modeling and computational methods. The research program within this network will be centered in a prominent field that is placed at the very forefront of modern Computational and Applied Mathematics. Within this general framework, the team of the University of Málaga focuses on the application of HCD-PDEs to the simulation of geophysical flows. A challenge in this field is the development of efficient methods based on nonconforming moving unstructured meshes avoiding the classical mesh distortion appearing in Lagrange-type methods. These methods are also of interest in the context of astrophysical models.

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a research master diploma in Applied Mathematics, Computer Sciences, or a closely related field. Applicants with experience in numerical methods of PDEs and scientific computing will be considered. Experience in ALE methods, nonconforming and moving meshes will be positively valued. Applicants should also possess strong methodological and writing skills and have a good level of English. Recommendations letters will be considered.
