Postdoctoral fellow
Numerical methods and computational tools for evolutionary
ecology vegetation models based on integro-partial differential equations
We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to take on the numerical and computational challenges arising in an international research collaboration that aims to develop an evolutionary ecology vegetation model capable of predicting vegetation structures favored under different environmental conditions. The model is physiologically structured and represented mathematically by an integro-partial differential equation, i.e., by a PDE in which coefficients depend on properties of the solution such as the light availability at a given height above ground.
A major objective of your work will be the development of a fast solver for integro-partial differential equations and the development of related computational tools required for simulations. There is also scope for developing algorithms and methods for studying phenotypic evolution in physiologically structured population models. Umeå University hosts a center for high-performance computing, HPC2N, and we expect that you can make use of these computing resources if needed. Depending on the direction in which you take your work, the position may lead to publications in computational mathematics, mathematical/theoretical ecology, or both. In addition, there is a good opportunity that your contributions will become incorporated in the next generation of world vegetation models.
For further information, please contact assistant professor Åke Brännström, +46-90-786 78 62, , professor Mats Larson, +46-90-7865502, or Head of department Anders Fällström . For a general presentation of the department, see The International Office, provides a general presentation of Umeå and the University.
The application should contain a curriculum vitae, copies of degree certificates, names and contact details of at least two references, and short accounts of scientific and teaching activities. Reprints of your most relevant publications and other documents that you wish to refer to should be attached.
Union information is available from SACO, +46-(0)90-786 53 65, SEKO civil, +46-(0)90-786 52 96 and ST, +46-(0)90-786 54 31.
Your complete application, marked with reference number 315-1620-08, should be sent to or to the Registrar, Umeå University, SE-901 87 Umeå, Sweden to arrive June 2, 2008 at the latest.
