Position: Research Fellow - Geometrically Unfitted Finite Element Methods for Inverse Identification of Geometries and Shape Optimization
Institution: University College London
Department: Mathematics
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The project focuses on open problems in computational methods for shape optimization and identification using nonconforming finite element methods. The responsibilities of the post will include: carrying out vigorous, high-level research into computational and theoretical aspects of shape optimization using finite element/boundary element methods, more specifically level set based geometrical description in combination with geometrically unfitted FEM, submitting publications regularly in refereed journals; participating in local seminars and in national and international conferences
Requirements: Candidates should either have a PhD or equivalent qualification in numerical analysis or scientific computing, should be finalising their PhD or waiting for their viva date. The successful candidate is expected to have some expertise and research experience in computational and theoretical aspects of finite element methods or related topics in numerical analysis. Candidates will also have be required to have proficiency in scientific programming
