PhD Positions in Computational Mathematics

Open PhD Positions
Call for Applications
The newly established Doctoral Program (DK) ''Computational Mathematics: Numerical
Analysis and Symbolic Computation'' at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, is
offering PhD positions in nine PhD Thesis Projects for the duration of three years.
Our interdisciplinary PhD research program (DK) is financed by the Austrian Science Fund
(FWF) and will begin on October 1, 2008. The overall goal of this PhD program will be to
provide intensive PhD training in two fundamental areas of computational mathematics:
numerical analysis and symbolic computation. This will be accomplished by course work
that involves lectures from both areas and by interdisciplinary research seminars. The DK
faculty involves researchers from the following institutions:
 Institute of Applied Geometry,
 Institute of Computational Mathematics,
 Industrial Mathematics Institute,
 Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC)
 Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) of the
Austrian Academy of Sciences.
For further information (scientific background, salary, etc.) and for details concerning the
application procedure, please see the DK webpage
Deadline for Applications: May 15, 2008.
Looking forward to your application, and best wishes
