Open PhD Positions in High Performance Scientific Computing at UPC BarcelonaTech

Open PhD Positions in High Performance Scientific Computing, at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC BarcelonaTech) and CIMNE, within the frame of the FET-HPC EU project:

ExaQUte - Exascale Quantification of Uncertainties for Technology and Science Simulation

ExaQUte is a FET-HPC H2020 3-year project (2018-2021) with the objective to develop new computational methods and software tools to target Uncertainty Quantification (UQ) and Optimization Under Uncertainties (OUU) for multiphysics and multiscale problems on geometrically complex domains. It involves the following institutions: CIMNE, UPC, EPFL, TUM, INRIA, BSC, and IT4I.

ExaQUte will exploit unfitted finite element techniques on adaptive octree meshes, space-time formulations and preconditioners, multilevel Montecarlo methods, and gradient-based optimization.

Candidates should hold a degree in mathematics, engineering, computer science, or physics, and an excellent academic record. Experience in finite element modelling, UQ, optimization, and/or object-oriented and parallel programming will be an asset.

Applications will be considered till the positions will be filled, so it is advised to send them as soon as possible. In any case, we would like to take a decision before May 31st. Please send your application (with an academic record) to:
