M.Sc./Ph.D. POSITION IN MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING

An opening for a graduate student (Master's or Ph.D.) is anticipated in Dr. Protas' research group at McMaster University with a start date of January 1, 2018 (preferred), or May 1, 2018. The focus of the position will be research on mathematical and computational modeling of nonequilibrium electrochemical and thermodynamic processes occurring in Li-ion batteries. This position is intended for a student with mathematics background interested in exploring a rapidly developing application area, or for a mathematically-minded chemist or chemical engineer with a solid background in theoretical and computational chemistry. The student will be enrolled in the interdisciplinary School of Computational Science and Engineering. Details concerning application procedures are available here.

STUDENT AND POST-DOCTORAL OPENINGS IN THEORETICAL FLUID MECHANICS

Openings for graduate students (Master's and/or Ph.D.) and a post-doctoral fellow are anticipated in Dr. Protas' research group at McMaster University. The focus of these positions will be fundamental investigations of extreme behavior, such as potential singularity formation, in fluid flow models using a combination of mathematical analysis and large-scale computations (the post-doctoral position may also involve some teaching). Required background involves (ideally, a combination of) theoretical fluid mechanics, large-scale scientific computing (including numerical optimization) and PDE analysis. Details concerning student positions are available here, whereas candidates interested in the post-doctoral opening should contact Dr. Protas for more information and application procedures.
