PhD Scholarship in Iterative Methods for Numerical Linear Algebra

KTH Royal Institute of Technology is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in algebra. The funding allows successful candidate to work for two years. The deadline for applying is January 06, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Computation is nowadays viewed as the third scientific tool as a complement to theory and experiment. Scientific problems in computational sciences are often formulated with linear algebra and approached with algorithms and techniques from numerical linear algebra. In this project we will use numerical linear algebra to develop new, efficient iterative algorithms for nonlinear and parameterized problems. We use and generalize techniques from matrix computations, such as Krylov subspaces and Arnoldi methods, with the goal to solve problems involving large matrices. As a PhD student within this project you will be a member of the research group in numerical analysis, and have the possibility to work with researchers and experts in numerical linear algebra. Research in this project spans from software, algorithm and applications to theory and analysis.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
