The Center for Computational Mathematics and Applications (CCMA) in the Department of Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, is seeking one or two scholars for postdoctoral appointments. Successful candidates will hold a PhD in mathematics or a related field (such as physics, engineering, computer science). The position requires expertise in numerical methods for partial differential. Fortran, C, or C++ programing is required. Experience in heterogeneous parallel computing is desirable but not required. Appointed candidates will work closely with the faculty at the CCMA on research related to numerical methods for large-scale practical applications. The postdoctoral scholar will contribute to a number of research projects including the CCMA’s projects supported by the NSF, the DOE and industries. The number of candidates appointed will depend on the availability of funding. The appointments will be effective on August 15, 2014, or later. Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled. More information on Penn State University and the Department of Mathematics can be found at www.math.psu.edu.
