The Gianna Angelopoulos University Lecturer in Scientific Computing

The Department of Physics invites applications for the Gianna Angelopoulos University Lectureship in Scientific Computing. This particular post will focus on continuum multi-physics modelling and will complement a separate appointment on atomistic and multi-scale modelling at the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy.

Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with a track record of excellence on the development of mathematical formulations and associated numerical algorithms for computational continuum physics, and on the implementation of these algorithms into software to simulate complex science and technology problems arising from industrial applications.

In particular, demonstrative track record on innovative research and development of continuum methodologies such as high resolution shock capturing finite volume methods for compressible flows, low Mach number finite volume methods, methodologies to capture nonlinear interactions between multiple states of matter (e.g. level-set GFM approaches), embedded boundary mesh generation (e.g. Cartesian cut-cells) and structured hierarchical adaptive mesh refinement or other closely-related areas.

Applicants should have a PhD in physics (or a cognate discipline), a strong record of relevant research, and must show evidence of enthusiasm and ability to teach a wide range of physics courses successfully at both undergraduate and master's level. This work will include the delivery of existing courses, and the development of new teaching materials, lecture courses, examinations and laboratory classes.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 21st July 2019.
