Research Fellow in Scientific Computing and Numerical Analysis (electromechanics)

Monash University | Melbourne, Australia


The School of Mathematics at Monash University invites applicants for the position of Research Fellow to develop advanced numerical discretisations for multiphysics PDEs under the guidance of Professor Santiago Badia and Associate Professor Ricardo Ruiz Baier, with emphasis on the mathematical and computational aspects of problems with dynamic interfaces; results will be disseminated results specialised research articles and technical presentations. While we are welcoming applicants from different research backgrounds, preference will be given to candidates with experience in the analysis and implementation of finite element and similar methods. In addition, knowledge of computational models for biomedical applications is desirable but not required. This research is supported by the Australian Research Council and its objective is the development and analysis of novel nonlinear, multiphysics, and multiscale PDE systems modelling the electromechanics of heart and torso, and to employ the combination of these numerical techniques and models to deliver predictive tools for patient-specific simulations of the cardiac function. The candidate will integrate all these developments into the Gridap project, a parallel Julia code for grid-based approximation of PDEs. Applicants must have a PhD in Mathematics, Physics, Engineering or a related field. Applicants must have a strong theoretical background in the numerical approximation of PDEs using finite element methods and expertise in the efficient implementation of these algorithms.
