PhD position within applied mathematics

About the position

The Faculty of Science and Technology at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) has a vacant PhD–position related to nonlinear partial differential equations. The PhD position is for a period of 3 years, or up to 4 years if teaching and other work duties are agreed.

We seek a motivated candidate who wishes to participate in further development of the theory for partial differential equations (PDEs) describing real world phenomena.  

The project you will be involved in will focus on one of two challenges related to the simulation, accurateness and robustness of real life PDE descriptions: The first is on the study of numerical methods for nonlinear PDEs of hyperbolic type (such as hyperbolic conservation laws). The second is on further developing, and studying, PDE models which describe phenomena in neuroscience.

The project will require tools from abstract PDE theory and numerical mathematics.

An application for a PhD position at NMBU is at the same time an application for admission to a PhD programme at the institution. The documentation that is necessary to ensure that the admission requirements are met must be uploaded as an attachment.
