PhD-position at Eindhoven University of Technology

Project description:
The swelling and shrinking behaviour of cartilaginous tissues can be modelled
by a four-component theory in which a deformable and charged porous medium is
saturated with a fluid with dissolved ions. This theory results in a coupled
system of non-linear parabolic differential equations together with an
algebraic constraint for electroneutrality. The goal of this project is the
three-dimensional computational solution of the system of equations. A
suitably chosen mixed finite element method fulfills the conservation laws
exactly and yields non-oscillatory solutions. This choice should be based on
a thorough understanding of the system of equations. Furthermore, a suitable
choice for the time-integration is needed as well as an efficient solution
procedure for the resulting non-linear equations. The numerical results will
be compared with measurements that will be obtained in a related project.

Profile of the candidate:
The qualified candidate should have completed an academic education (i.e.
have a degree on MSc-level or equivalent) in the area of applied and
computational mathematics or biomechanics with a thorough knowledge of

The position is a research position for 4 years (after one year an evaluation
of progress is made, leading to a continuation, if positive). There are ample
possibilities to follow courses. Special PhD-courses are provided within the
graduate schools.

Subject: Positions in Applied Mathematics, Mathematical/Computational Biology

Instituto Mexicano del Petrleo, Applied Mathematics and Computing Program,
Mexico. Positions in Applied Mathematics including Mathematical and
Computational Biology

Funded in 1965 the IMP (Mexican Petroleum Institute) has as its main
objectives to conduct basic and applied research, to develop technologies
applicable to the National Petroleum Industry, and to train highly qualified
personnel at all levels in the areas of production, exploitation and
refinement of oil products.

Applications are invited for qualified PhD candidates for several available
Postdoctoral Research positions, Visiting Professor positions, and
Tenure-Track positions in Applied Mathematics. All positions are for a one or
two year period subject to a positive review at the end of the first year if
applicable.  The tenure track positions are reviewed also at the end of the
second year.  Spanish is not a necessary requirement but it is expected that
all successful candidates will achieve some proficiency in the Spanish
language by the end of the first year.  Salaries are determined upon academic
and professional experience qualifications. Salaries in each category are
competitive on international standards.

The successful candidate will be incorporated into the IMP Research Program on
Applied Mathematics whose aim is to develop mathematical and computational
methodologies to be used in research areas related to petroleum exploration,
exploitation, refinement, transportation and production.  Applications are
encouraged in the following areas:  mathematical/computational biology,
control theory, mathematical statistics, optimization, and numerical

Candidates are expected to participate as part of interdisciplinary research
teams already constituted or being constituted in the areas of priority for
the IMP.

Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and two letters of
recommendation to: Dr. Jorge X. Velasco-Hernandez, Instituto Mexicano del
Petroleo, Programa de Matematicas Aplicadas y Computacion, Eje Central Lazaro
Cardenas 152, CP. 07730 Mexico DF. Further particulars can be obtained at the
email address [log in para visualizar] Applications will be received until the
positions are filled.

Subject: Tenure/Tenure-track/Scott/Visiting Positions, Math., U of Utah

The Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah invites applications
for the following positions. Availability of positions is contingent upon
funding. The hiring committee will select candidates based on excellence in
research and teaching.

1. Up to three full-time tenure-track or tenure appointments at the level of
assistant, associate, or full professor. The department is primarily
interested in applicants who work in the research areas represented in the
department and who received their Ph.D. degrees prior to 2001.

2. One or more nonrenewable three-year Scott Assistant Professorships.
Persons of any age receiving Ph.D. degrees in 1999 or later, are eligible.
Starting salary will be at least $43,000. Increases are given annually but
amounts vary from year to year. Teaching duties for the entire three-year
instructorship are nine one-semester courses.

3. One or more Visiting Faculty positions of one year or less in any of the
professorial ranks, depending upon availability.

Completed applications for faculty positions will be considered starting
October 1, 2001, and positions may be offered from that date on. However,
applications will be accepted up to May 1, 2002, or until positions are
filled. Scott Assistant Professorship applications should be completed by
December 1, 2001. Review of applications will begin on December 8, 2001.

To apply for any of these positions, you are strongly encouraged to fill out
an application at, or at

Alternatively, you may send the AMS cover sheet. To complete your
application, send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and three letters of
recommendation. Visiting professor applicants should indicate the part of the
year they wish to visit. Incomplete files will not be considered.

Regular Tenure Track Positions

The Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University invites
applications for two regular tenure-track faculty positions and a
postdoctoral position beginning Fall of 2002. The individuals appointed must
hold a doctorate at the time of appointment and be capable of fulfilling the
highest expectations in research and in teaching. The appointment level for
the regular faculty positions are open. For one of the faculty positions we
are specifically seeking an individual to take over the Directorship of the
Individualized Mathematics Program, through which the Department teaches its
precalculus offerings. This position offers an outstanding opportunity to
combine research in mathematics education with a strong curricular
development focus. The areas of emphasis for the other faculty position and
the postdoctoral position are not determined, but we intend to appoint
individuals with whom our existing faculty can effectively interact.

The Department currently has areas of strength in algebra, algebraic geometry
and topology, analysis and applied analysis, combinatorics, dynamical
systems, mathematics education, numerical analysis, optimization, partial
differential equations, pattern analysis, scientific computing, and symbolic
computation. We have 178 undergraduate majors and 45 graduate students, with
30 FTE tenure-track faculty. Colorado State University has an enrollment of
23,000 students and is located in Fort Collins, Colorado, an attractive
community of over 115,000 located 30 miles from Rocky Mountain National
