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, physics, engineering, computer science, or a related field. The position requires expertise in numerical methods for partial differential equations and iterative methods for solving large-scale linear systems. Fortran, C or C++ programming 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 of large-scale practical applications. The postdoctoral scholar will contribute to a number of research projects including the CCMA's projects supported by the NSF and the DOE. The number of candidates appointed will depend on the availability of funding. The appointment will be effective on August 15, 2013 or later. Applications will be reviewed until the positions are filled. More information on Penn State University and Department of Mathematics can be found at www.math.psu.edu.
